Wat Tan Hor Fun ~ Flat rice noodles



Wat Tan Hor Fun literally means flat rice noodles with smooth egg sauce.  There are 2 types of Hor Fun ~ flat rice noodles.  The thin and soft smooth ones are specially made to go with a soup base while the broader and thicker one is meant for stir-frying, which is the type that I'm using for this dish.
 

  
Heat up a pan with some oil, loosen up the noodles and stir-fry, add in some light and dark soya sauce.  Pan fry till the edges are a bit burnt.  Dish up onto plate and set aside.  Cook the meat, prawns in some water, throw in the vegetables and make the gravy, thicken it ......... break in the eggs, stir till cooked and pour over the fried noodles.  It's that easy!







This is another one-dish meal which I often make when I'm feeling a wee bit lazy to cook a 3 course dinner!

Almond Butter Cake ~ 杏仁牛油蛋糕

This is a delicious, moist, old-fashioned butter cake full of almondy flavour.  It looks pretty with the almond flaky top, certainly a crowd pleaser.   This cake is best consumed on the day it's freshly baked because of the crunchy nutty top but leftovers can still be kept chilled and reheated before serving.

Pandan Angku Kuih ~ 班兰叶龟糕

I've never thought of making Angku Kuih or Red Tortoise Cake simply because it's so readily available in my daily market place.  But there have been so many posts of this traditional kuih by my fellow food bloggers and  they look so cute and beautiful that I just cannot resist the temptation of not trying my hands at it.

I must admit that making this kuih can be rather tedious and the amount of work can really make your head spin.  But if you prepare the mung bean filling a day ahead, then it does help to lighten your work quite a fair bit.  For all the  effort, these Pandan Angku Kuih came out beautifully.  To see how the kuih will be like the next day, I kept some in a container at room temperature.  To my surprise the skin of the kuih stayed soft till late the next day.  I didn't have to steam them again.  All I can say is that my efforts paid off handsomely and I'm so pleased.  Now, I've no qualms  experimenting this Angku Kuih with different flavours :)
