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!
