Loh Shu Fun, ‘rat’s tail’, is a type of Chinese noodles that is long and tapered at the end. It’s made from rice flour and cornflour, hence its smooth and shiny texture and white and translucent appearance. The noodles may be stir-fried or cooked in soup. Claypot Loh Shu Fun is one way of preparing this noodle.
Unlike other claypot dishes, like the Claypot Chicken Rice, people usually stir-fry the noodles and ingredients in a pan first. Then, the cooked noodles are transferred to the heated clay pot. The clay pot helps retain the heat, so the noodles remain soft.
Claypot Loh Shu Fun usually has a raw egg cracked on top of it, with chopped spring onion and fried salted fish garnished on top. If you feel squeamish of eating raw egg, you can replace it with a poached egg or half-boiled egg. The pickled green chillies usually accompanying this dish is there for a spicy kick.
Try to make these flavourful noodles at home at any time of the day.
