Here's the recipe for Mi Rebus Kak Nah as promised.


1.5 litres beef stock

1.5 litres prawn stock

15 dried chillies, soaked and drained

20 (250gm) shallots

3 medium sized sweet potatoes (750gm)

3tbs oil

1tbs sugar

half tsp freshly ground black pepper

1- 2 tsp salt

Garnish ingredients:

2 cups lighly blanched beansprout

10 eggs, boiled, shelled & quartered

4 pcs firm beancurd, fried & sliced

5 limes, halved

5 green chillies, sliced

2 stalks chinese celery, sliced

1 cup sliced shallots, fried


1.5kg fresh noodles, lightly blanched

Beef Stock:

1kg beef bones (ribs are suitable)

500 beef shin or topside (kept in 1 piece)

1cm piece of ginger,bruised

3 litres water

Rinse bones & remove any visible bits of fat. Place in roomy pan with beef, ginger & water & put to boil. Remove any fat & scum that rise to surface.

Simmer gently for about 3hrs to extract maximum flavour & until beef is tender. (if using pressure cooker, use half the quantity of water). When beef is tender, remove & leave to cool. Slice thinly & use as garnish.

Strain the stock, & salvage any bits of beef from bones to be sliced & used as garnish

Prawn Stock

600gm medium/small prawns

4tbs oil

salt & pepper

2 litres water

Peel prawns, reserving shells & heads

Wash shells & drain well

Heat 2 tbs in wok & fry the shelled prawns on high heat until pink & firm. Season lightly with a touch of salt & pepper. Remove & serve as garnish

In same wok, heat the remaining oil & fry the drained prawn shells, tossing them overhigh heat, sprinkle in sugar & continue frying until lightly browned & caramelised

Pour in water & simmer for 30 mins. Let stock cool before pulverising in blender, using the stock. Strain liquid & discard solids. This makes 1.5 litres of stock

Mi rebus gravy:

Scrub sweet potatoes, boil in their skins until tender. Peel & mash

Grind chillies & shallots together until fine. Heat the oil & fry the ground ingredients on low heat until fragrant & oil separates. Pour in the 2 stocks & simmer for 15mins.

Add enough mashed potatoes to thicken gravy. Aim for moderately thick consistency.

Season with salt, pepper & sugar. Add a couple of spoonfuls of tomato ketchup
