As researched, is a very thin variety of salted Chinese noodles made from wheat flour. I prefer using it in my vegetable soups. I add meatballs to make the dish more exciting to eat. Cooking misua usually takes less than 2 minutes in boiling water.



1/2 k ground meat (any choice)
2 medium onions minced
2 eggs
1 medium carrot minced
1 tsp salt
1 tsp ground pepper


5 cloves garlic minced
1 medium onion chopped
1 tsp minced ginger
10 pcs meatballs
Misua (2 handfuls is good)
4 cups water
salt and pepper
1 tbsp olive oil
1 medium Patola (luffa) sliced into thin circles

How To:

Mix all ingredients and form ping pong size meat balls.

In a sauce pan, saute garlic, onion and ginger.
Add 4 cups of water. Simmer.
Drop meatballs one by one (do not mix). Simmer until meatballs are cooked.
Add sliced Patola and Misua.
Salt and Peppr to taste. Simmer for another minute.
Servings: 5-6
