Char Kway Teow is a popular hawker dish in Malaysia and Singapore, it's my family's favorite too. It's made of flat rice noodle cooked in a wok, this is a very simple dish and most importantly anyone can make this. Char Kway Teow is a complete meal and careful of the calorie, yea it is high in calorie so a small portion is very filling.
Usually this meal is stir fried with eggs, prawns, cockles, bean sprout, chives, chili paste and soy sauce but I as usual have altered this recipe according to my family's preference. We don't really prefer cockles so I have substituted chicken for prawn and cockles.
Let us look at how I have prepared this, to make things easy I'm going to give you pictorial step by step preparation.
1 pack of kway teow/ flat noodle
250g chicken thinly sliced
3 eggs beaten
4 garlic diced
3 tbsp chili paste (onion+dry red chili+garlic)
1 cup of bean sprout
1/2 cup of chives
2 tbsp of dark soy sauce
2 tbsp of light soy sauce
Oil to fry
For chili paste blend until fine 1 onion, 10 pcs dry red chili and 5 garlic without adding much water.
In a wok, pour oil add diced garlic, stir for a minute add sliced chicken,
chili paste and stir until chicken is cooked and gravy dries
Add in Kway Teow and mix well incorporating noodle
with chicken and chili paste
Now add in chives, bean sprout, both the soy sauce and stir well,
do add extra light soy sauce to adjust to your preference as we don't eat if its very salty
Pour in beaten egg at one side of the wok and scramble it 3/4,
then mix in the noodle incorporating with the scrambled egg
After stirring everything, this is how the fried noodle should be
Our Char Kway Teow is ready to be served, enjoy!
