Fried Beehoon (Rice Vermicelli)


When comes to lunch I like something simple, no fuss and quick. So I will normally have a fried rice, noddles or beehoon. I think my mom's fried the best beehoon. Her fried beehoon is always very dry and not sticking together. Mine, I tend to put too much liquid to it that is why it always turn out really soggy. The trick I learned from her is to soak the beehoon until is soft before frying them. Fried beehoon is really simple and everyone can do it.

I used beehoon, prawns, fried taufu, cabbage, bean sprout and garlic. Heat up some oil in a frying pan and put in the garlic. Then the taufu and prawns follow by the cabbage. Stir fry for a few minutes and then put in the beehoon. Put a dash or two of water and put in the seasoning like oyster sauce, soy sauce, salt and pepper to taste. Continue to stir fry until everything well mixed. Lastly put in some sambal (optional- I used Tean's) and beans sprout. Mixed well and serve.

Gert,
Delimas Crispy Prawn Chili is the best when frying beehoon, kan..?

I just cooked fried beehoon yesterday and still have some leftover - didn't take picture though...

Cat, the Crispy Prawns Chilli is the best. You pun suka? I just put in it everything especially with nasi goreng and beehoon goreng jugak.

Yum! One of my all time favourite meals. I thought the CPC is supposed to be a condiment. Didn't know it should be fried with the beehoon. No wonder my FBH is always so-so only. Good to know!

The easist way to cook same goes when I have guess at home, fried mee hoon is the most senang one.

Gert, thanks for the idea on using crispy prawn chilli. I ada lagi satu botol. Tersorok di belakang dalam fridge. Patut la your mee merah. Cantik! I love your garnish too. Telur dadar kan?

I Cook4Fun said...

Ya Zue, tu telur dadar. You should try using the crispy chilli prawns. Sedap with beehoon and nasi goreng.
