CHAR KWAY TEOW

Photobucket

This is a famous hawker food found in Malaysia, Brunei, Indonesia and Singapore. It is made from flat rice noodle, stir fried with light and dark soy sauce.

During olden days, char kway teow is labelled as "unhealthy" due to its high saturated fat content mainly to serve the labourer as their cheap source of energy and nutrients. As this dish has become increasingly popular, the latest version of this noodle is much healthier, free from lard but using cooking oil and more vegetables. You can add almost anything from seafood, meat or chicken to them.

CHAR KWAY TEOW
Serves   :    5

500g flat fresh rice noodle
140g bean sprout/ green peas
4 cloves garlic chopped
15 prawn shelled and deveined
80g fish cake sliced

SEASONING
2 TB light soy sauce
2 TB oyster sauce
1 tsp dark soy sauce
1 tsp sweet soy sauce
2 TB chili paste or to taste
2 TB cooking oil

METHOD

Heat the oil in a wok, add in garlic and chili paste, fry until fragrant.

Add in prawn and fish cake, fry until cooked. Pour in noodle, peas and the seasoning, stir until well combined.

Remove from heat, transfer onto a plate to serve.

I have never even seen or tasted a flat rice noodle-but this sure looks delicious! I will need to try it-especially the noodles because I imagine that they are much lighter than egg noodles. Thanks for sharing.
