Merienda time with Pancit Canton

small2The Pancit is one of a number of dishes introduced to us by the Chinese. Pancit is the term used in Philippine cuisine when referring to noodles and there are countless types of Pancit recipes in the country, with each region having their own version. In fact, the name Pancit came from the Hokkien, a Chinese dialect, pian i sit that means “convenient food.”

 

In the Philippines, it is a popular tradition that Pancit should be served on one’s birthday as the noodles represent long life and good health and it’s considered bad luck to cut the noodles short.

 

One of the more known Pancit recipes is the Pancit Canton, a stir-fried noodle dish with assorted vegetables and meat. In this recipe we will use chicken meat with string beans and carrots.  In China, Pancit Canton may refer to either lo mien, which means stirred noodles, or chow mien, another type of stir-fried noodle recipe.

Tita Kathy’s tip:

 

You can add more meat and vegetables in your Pancit Canton. Instead of chicken, try using shrimp and squid balls for a seafood-inspired Pancit Canton! Until next time!
