Fried Kuey Teow


Yes hi there!
I wanted to share with all of you my all time favorite dish.
Fried Kuey Teow... drools.
I am obsessed with kuey teow. I could devour the whole menu that include kuey teow in it.
Kuey teow ladna, kuey teow hailam, kuey teow soup, kuey teow bandung.....and many many more.
Only GOD knows why.
I felt as if the gravy absorb better with kuey teow noddles. Oh so delicious.
Yes believe me its much better. But some prefer yellow noddles over kuey teow which is not a suprise considering the texture and elasticity of yellow noddles is much more than kuey teow.

4 tablespoons chilli paste

30g spring onions (shredded)
a little water

I LOVE Malay Dishes

The good side of being Malaysia is of course the courtesy of being able to eat delicious food a.k.a home cooking. Oh Im drooling.. especially when the dishes are cooked by your lovely mom. Her special blends of herbs and spices with unconditional love included makes the food a thousand times better than those at the restaurants. Keep licking those fingers y'all. yes of course when you cook the food yourself you have the advantage of being able to consume in a larger portions than you could elsewhere.

A few months ago, with not much to ingredients at home. I managed to pull off a few of simple dishes to accompanied a freshly cooked hot rice. Not only it is easy yet very tempting. Thus I leave you all to devour your lappy or pc or mac with pictures of my so simple dishes.

Before that let me introduce to you what the dishes are:

Firstly, Malaysian favorite not in every countries however.. THE IKAN PEKASAM - fish which marinated in a special blend of tamarind. It is fried and best eaten while hot with friend shallots and bird eye chillies on top.
Secondly, Tempoyak - Perak's favorite accompaniments. Made from durian's which is preserved with salt and sugar. Left a few days before consumed. Usually made into sambal tempoyak which is mixed with pounded chillies and eaten with rice.
