Stir Fried Noodles Yakisoba-style

We have this saying in the Philippines during one's birthday to eat pancit or stir fried noodles for long life (Kumain ka ng pancit para humaba ang iyong buhay.)  That's why pancit is a common dish during birthday celebration.  Aside from the belief of life longevity, pancit is so simple to prepare.  Just stir fry everything, add the noodles and season with soy sauce and pepper.

Purple Yam and Jackfruit Filled Sticky Rice Dumplings in Coconut Milk (Ginataang Ube-Langka Mochi)


To be honest, I don't know how to call this dish.  It's somewhat like a buchi or mochi with jackfruit and purple yam filling but cooked like ginataang bilo-bilo way.

I've been interested in cooking mochi and even watched different videos on Youtube for some tutorials.  However, out of nowhere, it just cross my mind to combine a mochi recipe and a ginataang bilo-bilo recipe.  I love ginataang bilo-bilo because of its sweetness and jackfruit flavor and the sticky, soft and chewy rice dumplings.  Filled these dumplings with purple yam jam (halayang ube), I think, will make it more enjoyable.
