Siam Style Fried Kueh Teow

Who like Char Kueh Teow? Today's fried Kueh Teow is not the dark sauce version, this is more spicy  and a little salty.  With the usual ingredients like prawn, squid, meat and some greens, a complete new tasty dish is presented with just a twist of different seasoning added. Not necessary to purchase extra new condiments to whip up this dish as they are really common in our pantry I guess! As usual I've reduced the chilli paste to suit my kids, you may wish to add more chilli paste if you desired a more spicier fried Kueh Teow! 

Recipe source : Famous Cuisine Dec 2012 Issue

  • 1/2 tbsp chilli paste 
  • 1 tbsp salted bean paste
  • 2 tbsp tomato paste
  • 1 tsp sugar

  2. Heat 2 tbsp oil in wok, sauté garlic over medium low heat till fragrant.
  3. Add in prawn, squid & chicken breast and toss until chicken meat changes color.

Hi Peng

Do you wash the kway teow before you fry them. I used to wash them but it turns out soggy after frying. Yours look so appetising.
Hope to hear your expertise advise. Thank you.

Anony...yes I only rinse lightly to separate it. Kush Teow requires quick and high heat frying. Over tossing in wok will cause it to be soggy :) Add in kueh teow lastly after all other ingredients are cooked. Toss gently and quickly to ensure sauce are coated evenly.
