Fancied a Fried Kway Teow (flat rice noodles) so decided to make it for lunch. 😀 It’s one of my favourite dishes to make when I’m cooking for one or two because it isn’t a lot of work to prepare and it’s quick to whip up. Just like a fried rice. 😉
Use Kecap Manis For A Deeper Flavour
I always like to fry kway teow the ‘nasi goreng’ way by adding a little kecap manis (sweet soy sauce) and sambal chilli that adds depth to its flavour and also a little kick of spice. Kecap manis is less sweet than the sweet sauce that is used in our local black char kway teow or carrot cake so this Fried Kway Teow dish can be made more savoury than sweet.
Enjoy this recipe!
