Char Kuey Teow


Or my version . Sans prawn -  a tad expensive these past few days . Or I'm just feeling cheap .

I haven't eaten this dish for quiet sometime . Come to think of it there are lots of food that I haven't seen nor eaten for a while -__-''

I'm planning to make another gon chau ngau ho but I still have one lone Chinese sausage so I decided to make this .

It may look like gon chau ngau ho but the taste is much more like the char kuey teow that I usually ate at Toast Box . By the way , their coffee , free with a set meal , tastes HEAVENLY hee hee

But I haven't been there for a while and been dreaming about it , so I tried making it and the taste is really really good , okay , okay , according to me hahahaha

I did cook this in the stainless steel wok , but as we're using induction stove it's not really the same as when using a gas stove . I did maintain a high heat throughout but some noodles still stick on the pan and unlike when I made gon chau ngau ho last time , where I seldom stir the noodles before adding the sauce, this time I stir it vigorously heh !

If it may look like a tad dry it's because I just use about 2 tablespoon of oil and most of it were absorbed by the eggs . So if you want a more glossy noodles just add more oil .

There should be always a chopstick shot ! And just to let you know , it's really quiet hard holding a chopstick full of food in your right hand while taking photo on your left hand hee hee

550 grams fresh wide noodles
150 grams fish cake , sliced
1 Chinese sausage , steam and sliced
1 tablespoon garlic , minced
2 small shallots , sliced
2 eggs
some spring onion slices

For the sauce : Combine 3/4 T dark soy sauce , 1 T fish sauce , 1 T sambal oelek ( chili paste ) , 1 T brown sugar , 3 T water , pinch of salt and a generous dash of white ground pepper .

* Heat the pan and add oil , add the shallots and garlic fry until garlic turns golden brown . Add the sausage and fish cake ; fry until the cake turns lightly brown . Add the noodles , stir , toss and scrape the bottom to prevent sticking , about 3-4 minutes ; add the sauce , stir until well combined ; adjust taste ; add in the sprouts , continue tossing and stirring then make a space in the center of the pan and add in the eggs , stirring and  let eggs cook through and then stir into the noodles , mix thoroughly until well combined . Add in the spring onion , give another good stir . Serve hot .

  2. Anne, Your CKT looks very delicious and you can fry them well. I've tried a couple of times and in the end we need to eat the CKT with a spoon... :D

    The picture of the chocolate cake looks nice.

  4. Every time I see chinese sausage, I so wish I could try some! Your recipe here does look like a great way to prepare it too, I do like to pair fish with pork-yum.
    Also, that chocolate cake looks like a great way to end the meal, my slice would have to include M&M's too!
    Yummy feast!
