My Fiery Sambal Fried Koay Teow


Among the three types of noodles, meehoon, koay teow and mee, I would have to say that koay teow is my favorite.

It is the oiliest (if you buy the fresh packaged ones) and the softest and I guess I love that comforting mouth feel that I get when eating either fried koay teow or koay teow soup.

Last weekend I had a craving for sambal koay teow. My favorite noodle in delicious sambal. Now, how tempting is that.

This is not my first attempt. I cooked one a while back and it was just all right and could be improved.

First attempt. Too little sambal. And too little kicap.

So I came away with satisfactory results in my second attempt. I had some chili paste leftover in the fridge and I used up the whole lot which meant that I ended up with an extra spicy batch of koay teow.

But it's all good. Lagi pedas lagi sedap! (the spicier the better!).

  3. I'm on the opposite, kuey teow is the least favorite while mee hoon is my all time favorite... But if you give me a plate of your fried kuew teow I'm more than happy to finish it :p

  9. These flat noodles are my favourite type in Malaysia. I can also imagine them with some lamb ragout - they make for great fusion cooking.

  16. I prefer char kuey teow. But between kuey teow and mee, I lagi suka meelah, PH. My anak-anak tak suka sangat kuey teow. So bila I masak kuey teow, only me and my husband yang makan. Anak-anak kalau tak biasa, memang they will look at the food macam nampak alien turun ke bumi ^_^
