Char Kuey Teow

in Malaysia, Seafood, Stir Fry, Street food

When in Malaysia, you take street foods for granted. It never feels like you’d ever need to learn how to whip up char kuey teow, chendol, mamak mee goreng, curry laksa etc…

When there’s abundant street stalls/hawkers and weekly evening markets offering arrays of delicious street foods, why bother making it at home?

Right?

Char Kuey Teow | KiranTarun.com

Well, it makes a difference if you live a few thousand miles away from home and there’s zero access to Malaysian street foods. Le sigh.

But thanks to importers, I’m able to source out the main ingredients from my local Asian supermarket and I hope you’d get to do so too.

Its so exhilarating to be able to source ingredients that you’ve never came across before.

I’m sure many can relate to the qualms of trying to make a recipe you’ve practically grew up on and not able to find the ingredients while living abroad, to emulate it in your kitchen?

And once you’ve found it in your local Asian supermarket, all you want to do is sing praises to the Lord?

Yeah, that’s me! Just don’t run up and down the aisle from all of the excitement :D

Makes 3 servings

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 lbs flat rice noodles (fresh/dried)
  • 1/2 lbs shrimps (18 to 20 count), peeled and deveined
  • 3 large garlic, finely minced
  • 4 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 large handful of fresh bean sprouts
  • 1 large handful of chinese chives, chopped

Sauce:

  • 3 tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp kecap manis or dark soy sauce
  • 1/2 tbsp fish sauce
  • 3 tbsp sambal oelek or fresh chili paste
  • 1/2 tsp white pepper powder
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar

Directions:

  1. Prep all ingredients before heating up the wok. In a bowl, combine all the sauce ingredients and set aside. Prepare noodles according to package instructions. If you are using dried noodles, after draining it, stir 1 tbsp of cooking oil to avoid noodle lumps.
  2. Heat up wok on high and once it begins smoking, reduce heat to medium high and swirl in 2 tbsp cooking oil. Add shrimps and stir-fry for 2 minutes only. Remove shrimp on a clean plate.
  3. Crank up the wok to high heat again, once it smokes, reduce to medium-high and swirl in 1 more tbsp of cooking oil. Add freshly minced garlic and stir fry until fragrant. Avoid burning the garlic. It’ll not taste good ;)
  4. Throw in cooked flat rice noodles and sauce. Crank up the heat to high and stir-fry for a minute. Reduce heat to medium-high, push the noodles to the sides of wok and add 2 eggs. Stir fry eggs a little before combining it with noodles.
  5. Crank up the wok to high again and throw in the shrimps, bean sprouts and chinese chives. Stir fry for one more minute and remove from heat.
  6. Serve char kuey teow hot from the wok, immediately, garnished with sliced fresh red chilies.

Traditionally, char kuey teow has a long list of ingredients such as fish cakes, cockles, Chinese sausage and cooked in pork fat etc. Not a fan of these ingredients, so I omitted it. Feel free to add or omit ingredients to your taste.

Though char kuey teow resembles pad thai, it definitely tastes different — dare I say more delicious :D

What’s your favorite stir-fry recipe? Have you tried char kuey teow before?

I have never heard of this dish, but it looks as appetising as all the Malaysian dishes I have ever seen. I am also very grateful for all the Asian grocery shops we have in my city (I only sometimes wish the employees spoke any European language ;-) ). Although I don’t find everything, they are surprisingly well stocked and frankly I discover better Asian cuisines at home than in restaurants which, to be polite, are here far from perfect.

You are such an amazing food artist Kiran! Gorgeous photography and food styling. This was my favourite dish when my parents took me to Kuala Lumpur as a child (well, this and char siew bao, yum!). I loved the ritual of buying food off the streets from busy vendors with steaming woks. I’ve never attempted it at home but I share the same frustration as you in terms of ‘street food’ here in Australia. It’s pretty much non existent, and when it is, it’s expensive. I might just try your recipe. Looks divine! xx
