Fried Kway Teow


Fried kway teow is an ever loved Malaysian hawker fare. Fried on the spot upon order and presented hot on the table. I'm not a big fan of fried kway teow but my other half is. In fact, most of the time when we eat at coffee shops, its a plate of rice noodles stir fried over high heat. Last Sunday, instead of kway teow at the coffee shop, I impressed my other half with my cooking skills. Yes. I made fried kuey teow - flat rice noodles with bean sprouts, eggs, cockles, fish balls and seasoned with dark and light sauce. 

Ingredients
300g (about 1/2 a packet)kway teow/flat rice noodles
1 cup bean sprouts 
A few chives - sliced into 1 inch length
50g/ a handful of cockles (already removed from shells)
5-6 fish balls - sliced into 3 pieces
3 eggs
1 tbsp dried chilli paste/chilli boh 
6 garlic - chopped
1/2 tbsp dark soy sauce
1 tbsp light soy sauce
4 tbsp oil
Salt to taste (use sparingly) 

Method:
In heated oil, saute garlic.
Add chilli paste and fry till oil splits. 
Add noodles, pour dark and light sauce and quickly stir. .
Push noodles aside and break eggs in the centre of the wok. 
Gently fold noodles over. Combine in bean sprouts, chives, fish balls and cockles. 
Stir all together and remove from heat.
(Note: if needed, sprinkle a bit of water while frying to soften noodles)

  1. My kitchen is small and holds heat, so thanks for the warning on this. I will be sure and open a window to get a breeze going. Anyhow this dish does look like a healthy blend of tasty ingredients. Knowing that I could do the prep work in advance, the dish itself cooks up in no time-which is a definite plus. Glad you shared this one and have great day.
