Homemade Green Tea Flat Noodles Soup (Pan Mee)

Usually I just buy ready make raw or cooked noodles from supermarket shelves.I never make my own noodle until my mom told me how to do it in a simply and easy way.So,I decided to give a try using Green Tea/Matcha powder 抹茶,as the flavour enhancer.It's really fresh and interesting to make your own pasta "Flat Noddles Soup" that I crave when thinking about this yummy delicious noodle soup. The infusion green tea powder into my homemade flat noodles bring the refreshing healthy idea of cooking pasta.
Here are some fact excerpt from m WIKIpedia:Matcha 抹茶 Matcha is a fine, powdered green tea used particularly in the Japanese tea ceremony, as well as to dye and flavour foods such as mochi and and a variety of wagashi(Japanese confectionery). The most famous Matcha-producing regions are in Kyoto (tea from this region is called "Ujicha"), Nishio in Aichi (tea from this region is called "Nishiocha") both on the main island of Honshū Shizuoka and Northern Kyushu.

Ingredients For Pasta (A)

2 -2 1/2 cups all purpose flour

1 tsp baking powder

1 tbsp green tea powder

2 tbsp water

1 eggs

1 dash salt

Ingredients For Soup:(B)

500 gm minced meat

10 pc shitake mushroom(soaked and sliced)

1 cup anchovies(fried)

300 gm green mustard or any greens(wash and cut)

8-0 cloves garlic(minced)

2 tbsp soy sauce

1 tbsp sugar

2 tsp white pepper

2 cubes knorr shrimp / anchovies bullion cubes

3 liter water


1:Prepare a large bowl for ingredients (A).Knead all the ingredients until form a smooth dough.Let it proof for 30 minutes to 1 hour before use a rolling pin to roll out flat and cut into stripe.Wish I have pasta machine now:)

2:Prepare a large pot water,let it boil and add in all the cut flat noodles to cook in rolling boil water for 8-10 minutes.Then sieve into a collard and run under cold water to prevent the noodles from sticking together.

3:Prepare a skillet with 2 tbsp oil to fried garlic until fragrant or golden brown.Then set aside in a small bowl.

4:Use the same skillet to fried minced meat with soy sauce and sugar until cooked.Then set aside in a small bowl.

5:Use the same skillet to fried shitake mushroom with some soy sauce for 3-5 minutes.Then set aside in a small bowl.

6:Prepared a large pot with 3 liter water at high heat.Add in Knorr shrimp cube and white pepper .Add in mustard green and flat noodles when the soup base is rolling boil.Add salt to your taste before scoop your portion into a bowl ,ready to serve warm.Top the flat noodles soup with fried shitake mushroom,minced meat ,fried garlic and anchovies.


You can use any minced meat like chicken,turkey ,beef or pork.But remember ,top the fried anchovies when you're ready to consume the soup if not it's will soggy.I prefer to eat with Thai's cut chili or spicy chili sauce on the side.Enjoy it:P..Check Somen,clam linguine with red sauce ,homemade wanton mee , shell pasta stuffed chicken and ricotta , trenette meat sauce pasta and chicken spinach cheese manocotti for more Pasta..

What a great idea to put green tea powder to the noodles. I love pan mee but hardly cook this because I will be the only one who eats it
:( I will make the lazy style which I tear the noodle rather rolling and cutting it :) By the way, can I have a bowl?

Gert,i don't like my noodle thick.I remember my mom make ban mee by tearing and it's really thick.Sure,I still left some after 2 days,always make too mcuh food!

Thnak you for the award:)).It's easy for you to make your own noodles since you have 4 ppls in your family..mine hubby not interested in any asian noodle soup and Mishu not really like noodles soup,she prefer hokkien mee or black mee she called!

cooking ninja:
yea...don't we all love ban mee?

actually I don't really can smell the greentea flavor in the soup,maybe other ingredients like pork,mushroom and anchovies overtake the greentea flavor.

I love to eat pan mee and always cook it on weekends. I added an egg to the flour before kneading. Will try adding green tea powder when I made it tomorrow....
