SWEET & SAVORY BEE HOON PLUS AN AWARD
I used to cook idiyappam (string hoppers) with coconut milk few months back. It is a quick and yummy South Indian breakfast using rice noodle. My sons suggested why not we have this for our breakfast. But now I did with bee hoon (rice vermicelli) instead.
It came out pretty well and retain the same taste as we did with idiyappam. So those without string hoppers, in case of emergency, make your favorite dish using rice vermicelli. Using evaporated milk but coconut milk will make it taste even better. For vegetarian can omit the eggs.
Here is the recipe for this hearty breakfast or quick dinner.
SWEET & SAVORY BEE HOON

150g dry bee hoon soaked
