I learnt this recipe from my Malaysian Tamil friend Rubini, who patiently explained me the recipe, even in her busy schedule with the little kid. Thank you so much for the recipe. My family enjoyed the noodles and i have already made this twice on popular demand. Check out the Teh tarik another local tea recipe.

  • Mix well. Add the cooked noodles.
  • Add 1 tblsp of sesame oil to this.
