Malaysian Fried Flat Rice Noodle – “Char Kway Teow”

By Tuesday, January 21, 2014 0 , , Permalink 0

When I was at 99 Ranch Market this morning and I saw the bag of bean sprouts was on sale for 99 cents. Then I thought, may be I will make “Char Kway Teow” for dinner tonight. Also grabbed a bag of the flat rice noodles from the shelf and I went to pay for my items.

Here is a video of me cooking this dish. It is easy and fast to cook. Although it is fast to cook, but may take some time to prepare the ingredients. The flat rice noodle need to be separated individually so it is not sticking to each other. This way to make sure that each noodle will absorb the secret sauce and expose to the heat on the wok.

At the time of preparing the ingredients, I didn’t think to record it down. Only after I fried the first plate of noodles, then I thought, why not just record it. Took out my tripod and DSLR, set it up and shot it myself as I was cooking the dish. And yes, for this dish, it is best to fried each serving by itself. So I made three separate servings for our dinner tonight.
