Char Kway Teow

My maid cooked this Char Kway Teow for lunch and I thought I should post this as one of my cooking recipe for future reference. The main ingredients : Kway Teow, yellow noodle, fish cakes, chinese sausages and eggs. As for seasoning, my maid used her own discretion : sweet sauce, pepper, Knorr seasoning powder. 

For better understanding the origin of this dish, please find as below:

Char Kway Teow, literally "stir-fried ricecake strips", is a popular noodle dish in Malaysia, Singapore, Brunei and Indonesia. The dish is considered a national favourite in Malaysia and Singapore.

It is made from flat rice noodles (河粉 hé fěn in Chinese) or kway teow (粿条 guǒ tiáo in Chinese) of approximately 1 cm or (in the north of Malaysia) about 0.5 cm in width, stir-fried over very high heat with light and dark soy sauce, chilli, a small quantity of belachan, whole prawns, deshelled blood cockles, bean sprouts and chopped Chinese chives. The dish is commonly stir-fried with egg, slices of Chinese sausage, fishcake, beansprouts, and less commonly with other ingredients.[2]Char kway teow is traditionally stir-fried in pork fat, with crisp croutons of pork lard. In Penang, Char kway teow is commonly served on a piece of banana leaf on a plate, so as to enhance the aroma on the noodles.[3]

Char kway teow has a reputation of being unhealthy due to its high saturated fat content. However, when the dish was first invented, it was mainly served to labourers. The high fat content and low cost of the dish made it attractive to these people as it was a cheap source of energy and nutrients. When the dish was first served, it was often sold by fishermen, farmers and cockle-gatherers who doubled as char kway teow hawkers in the evening to supplement their income.

Kong Bak Pau (扣肉包)

These Chinese-styled burgers and a local delight are my Mother-In-Law's and hubby's favourite dish which we usually get it easily frozen packed from the famous chain shop 香味 (just steamed and ready to eat). But this time I decided to give it a try myself. Frankly speaking, I have estimated all the seasonings and below is just a guideline, you can add more or less to your preference. As I am quite conscious of the fatty layers in the pork belly, so I will choose those that are more meaty. Guess it should be fine to eat these once in a while.

The important part of this dish is to cook it in low heat for at least an hour or more in order to get the fragrance from the sauce into the meat, making them soft and tender, perfect combination to go with the buns. 


600g pork belly or lean meat, cut into thin slices
3 tbsp dark soy sauce
1 tbsp sesame oil
1 tbsp oyster sauce
1 tbsp sugar
Dash of pepper

3 tbsp oil
3 slices ginger
7 cloves garlic
250 ml water

12 Kong Bak Pau (steamed)


1. Marinate the meat slices with dark soy sauce, sesame oil, oyster sauce, sugar and pepper for 1 hour.
2. Add oil in a pot and add the ginger and garlic. Stir-fry until fragrant. Add the marinated meat slices and the rest of the marinade. Stir to mix well. Cover the pot and allow it to cook for 5 minutes.
3. Remove the lid and stir-fry again to mix well. Add water and mix again. Cover the pot with a lid and allow it to cook under low heat for 1 hour. Serve hot with buns.

Omurice & Watermelon Juice

Omurice is a Japanese Omelette Rice (Western-influenced style of Japanese cuisine) which is one of my family's all-time favourite meal. Basically, it's fried rice wrapped in a thin sheet of crepe-like fried egg. It is so simple and delicious which I can easily whip this up when I am running out of time to cook lunch or dinner. I love ketchup so this meal is indeed a super duper meal for me. I have also blended watermelon juices to compliment with this meal. Yum!


Cooked rice
1 pack chicken breast without skin (diced)
1 whole onions (diced)
1 whole carrot (diced)
1 bunch of french beans or long beans
8 eggs
3 tbsp olive oil
Knorr seasonings
Dash of pepper


1. Dice the chicken, onion, carrot and french beans.
2. Heat 2 tbsp of olive oil in a frying pan and cook the diced onions until tender. Add carrots and french beans. Add the diced chicken and cook until no longer pink. Add Knorr seasonings.
3. Add cooked rice, stir until will mix. Add ketchup, salt and pepper.
4. Beat eggs in a bowl, then season with a little salt and pepper.
5. In a clean frying pan, heat 1 tbsp of olive oil, spread the egg mixture (pour the egg mixture just enough to cover the pan) and make into a round omelette. Once cooked, place the omelette on a round plate and put the seasoned rice from the centre of the omelette to the edge of 1 side. Fold the other side of the omelette to cover the seasoned rice. Pipe some ketchup on top of Omurice and served hot.
