Fried Bihun ~ Rice Vermicelli


There are two types of Bihun~Rice Vermicelli, one is thin and fine which is suitable to serve with soup as they soften easily when soaked.  The other is thicker and tougher which is best for stir-frying.  These take a longer time to soften and as such they don't break easily during the stir-frying process.



The Tiger brand type is for stir-frying, while Erawan is suitable for soup.



This is a very simple, quick and easy meal to whip up.  First saute the garlic with oil, add in the ingredients, veggie, water and then the pre-soaked bihun, then the prawns.  Now just add in the dark soya sauce and salt to taste and you're done!



Fried Bihun is one of my favourites and I can have this anytime, anywhere ......... yummy!

  9. There's also instant bihun available these days. Quick & easy, no need soaking but only best for making bihun soup. Haven't had bihun for quite a while. Yumm.... Hope you're enjoying your evening.

Traditional Mixed Nuts Mooncake ~ 2013

Traditional Mixed Nuts Mooncake was my dad's perennial favourite.  At that time I couldn't understand why this festive traditional mooncake was most enjoyed by the older folks.  But nowadays, I too have slowly acquired the taste for this sweet, salty and nutty variety.  These cakes are best cut in  small wedges, savoured by small delicate bites and not by the mouthfuls, and they are best enjoyed with a pot of hot Chinese tea.

Ondeh Ondeh Pandan Cupcakes ~ 香兰小蛋糕

Ondeh Ondeh are green coloured and pandan flavoured glutinous rice balls with gula melaka or palm sugar filling, coated with freshly grated coconut.  We call it 'Kuih'.  Ondeh Ondeh cake is entirely different from this 'Kuih'.
I don't know how the name 'Ondeh Ondeh cake' came about but I guess it's because of the colour and the ingredients which are somewhat similar to that of the 'kuih'.
This pandan flavoured Ondeh Ondeh cupcake is moist, soft and slightly spongy and the gula melaka filling blends awfully well with the pandan and 'santan'/coconut milk.  A wonderful tea-time snack or a delectable dessert, any time!
