干炒河粉 Fried Hor Fun

Tried out this dish on a boring Sunday at home. Easy, yummy and tasty! Remember to give the kway teow/hor fun a quick run through the hot water though otherwise it will be too greasy! You will be surprised at how much oil there is in that little packet of uncooked kway teow from the wet market.

Serves: 2
Ingredients:

200 g kway teow/horfun (shouldn’t cost you more than $1 at your lovely neighbourhood market)
2 tsps chopped garlic (more if you are a big fan of garlic, i am)
pork slices (at your own discretion)
shrimps
bean sprouts (grumpy aunty wont sell you anything less than 10 cents in any case)
onion
2 crab sticks (sliced)
1 egg
Seasoning A:
1 tsp light soy sauce
1 tsp dark soy suace
Seasoning B:
1 tsp light soy sauce
1 tsp dark soy sauce (depending on how dark you want your hor fun to be)
1 tsp oyster sauce
1 tsp sesame oil
pinch of pepper
Garnish:
Spring Onions, red chilli & sesasme seeds (totally unnecessary)
Steps:
1. Heat up about 1/2 tbsp of oil, fry half the garlic till fragrant, add noodles and stir well. I would fry it until they become a semi crispy but NOT burnt. Add seasoning A. Set the noodles aside
2. Fry remaining chopped garlic in oil till fragrant. Add beaten egg. try to scramble it up. Put in the remaining ingredients in this order (pork slices, prawns, crab sticks, beansprouts/veg), making sure each ingredient is cooked before adding the next.
3. Stir in the noodles from step 1, add seasoning B and mix them well (bicep muscle cramps are a given especially if you are cooking for more people)
Enjoy.
