$10 Meal - Meal 3 (Seafood Mui Fan!)

Dumpling loves soup and prefers her rice and pasta to have gravy as it is easier to chew and swallow. Hence one easy and quick meal to dish out is Mui Fan :)

The ingredients:

1) 1 packet of fishcake ($1.50)

2) 1 packet of medium sized prawns (there were about 10 pieces in our box for less than $3) 

3) 1 packet of baby chye sim ($1)

4) 1 sutchi fillet (1 packet at $3.99 has 2 big fillets which we used 1 piece ~ Approx. $2)

5) 2 eggs ($0.50)

Total amount: $8

Money left: $2!

You can also substitute fish fillet for meat - chicken fillet / pork

To cook:

1) Fry about 1 teaspoon of minced garlic

2) Add fish slices  (we marinated ours with a bit of pepper, salt and cornflour) and prawns and lightly fry

3) Add chye sim and fry till it is half cooked

4) Add fish cake

5) Add water (we put in about 4 - 5 bowls of water and you need to estimate depending on how much gravy you want). Bring to boil and let it simmer till the veg has softened

6) Add in cornflour mixture (I used 4 table spoons with double that amount of water to it)

7) Once the gravy has thicken, crack the eggs and stir it in

Serve over rice
