Curry Lo Shi Fun

Yesterday, I was trying to teach my boy how to cook a curry noodle. Since, this is his first try, I made the recipe real simple, no fuss and just a notch up from cooking instant noodle. Standing beside him, giving all the instructions and without a few minutes we have 2 bowls of piping hot Curry Lo Shi Fun.

Ha., boys can cook too! I remember teaching ‘Teach Me To Fish’ programme in Catholic High Primary, which was organized by the Parents Support Group. Look at the primary school boys, they love the cooking sessions so much. For 2008, the programme for P6, was teaching “How to fry an egg” and I brought something extra – noodle and veggies, just in case we have too much time left as the class only had 22 pupils.

So at the end, I got Gabriel and Felix do a simple Stir-fried Noodle with Veggies and the noodle was shared among their classmates. Brandon thought that the noodle was cooked by me and told me it was delicious. When I told him, it was done by his classmates, he just could not believe it! What I enjoy most was, how these young gentlemen do the cooking, so engrossed and dedicated … And they really enjoy what they had cooked.


Preparation: 10 mins, Cooking time: 8 mins

Ingredients (serves 2)
° 300g Lo Shi Fun, blanched
