PENANG DRIED CHAR KUEY TEAW

Char kway teow, literally "stir-fried ricecake strips", is a popular noodle dish in Malaysia, indonesia, Brunei and Singapore. The dish was (and still is in some places in Malaysia and Singapore) typically prepared at hawker stalls especially in Penang, Malaysia.
It is made from Flat rice noodles 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 soya sauce, chillies , a small quantity of belachan, whole prawns, deshelled cockles, bean sprout and chopped Chinese Chives. The dish may commonly be stir-fried with egg, slices of Chinese Sausage and fishcake.
That's a brief explanation by Wikipedia for those new to this dish. I had shared with you on the wet version of Penang Char Kuey Teaw and today we are going to make the dried version. It is important to note that the best Char Kuey Teaw lies in the sauce/seasoning. Make sure you get the right sauce for your kuey teaw. To have much...much...impact on your kuey teaw fried it individually, I mean fried it per serving. Here's what you need,

Dalam entry terdahulu saya sudah berkongsi mengenai cara membuat kuey teaw basah Pulau Pinang. Untuk hari ini kita akan melihat bagaimana membuat kuey teaw kering Pulau Pinang. Kuey Teaw ini memang top di Pulau Pinang, tidak sah kalau sudah berkunjung ke Pulau Pinang tanpa mencuba Kuey Teaw ini. Sedapnya kuey teaw banyak bergantung kepada sosnya. Oleh itu kalau membuat kuey teaw goreng seperti ini pastikan anda menggunakan sos yang bersesuain.

Dalam resipi ini saya menggunakan bebola ikan, fish kek, udang hidup dan kerang. Untuk memastikan keuy teaw kekal sedap pastikan ianya digoreng satu persatu.
