Total time: 
  • 3 individual packets of Koka Purple Wheat noodles
Sauce for the noodles: *(see cooking notes)
  • 2 tablespoons oyster sauce
  • 1 tablespoon abalone sauce
  • 2 teaspoons dark soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon shallot oil
  • 7 teaspoons hot water
Chicken Cabbage soup
  • 2-3 chicken carcasses, cleaned
  • 3 cloves garlic, washed, leave skin on
  • 1 small cabbage, plucked into leaves
  • 2 chicken thighs, skin and visible fats removed
  • 4-5 small dried scallops
  • 3-4L water
  • fish sauce to taste
Seasoning for chicken thighs
  • 2 tablespoons chicken marinade
  • 1 tablespoon oyster sauce
  • a couple of dashes of ground black pepper
Chicken cabbage soup
  1. Season the chicken thighs with the condiments and set aside.
  2. Place the chicken carcasses in a pot of water and bring the water to a boil. Remove the chicken carcasses and discard the water.
  3. Place the chicken carcasses, garlic and dried scallop in a soup bag then place the bag in your soup pot with 3-4L water.
  4. Bring the soup to a boil. After about an hour or so, add in the cabbage and continue to simmer until cabbage is tender.
  5. Meanwhile, wrap the seasoned chicken thighs with aluminium foil. Steam the parcel on the lowest heat possible for 2 hours.
  6. After the chicken thighs are cooked, remove the meat and place them in the soup (or you can leave the thighs intact if you prefer). Pour any water that has collected inside the steaming dish into the soup.
  7. Season the soup with fish sauce according to preference.
Koka Purple Wheat Noodles
  1. Cook the noodles as per instructions on packaging.
  2. Drain the noodles and drizzle desired amount of sauce on the noodles and mix well.
  3. Serve with the chicken cabbage soup for a wholesome meal.
1. When you're preparing the sauce, you'd probably find that the sauce is very salty. But once it's mixed with the noodles which are wet from the cooking, the sauce will be diluted. Hence if you start off with an ok-tasting sauce, by the time you mix it in your noodles, the taste would be bland.
2. Chicken cabbage soup can be served with rice as a complete meal as well if you don't want to prepare the noodles.
