I don't recall chicken wings offered in the stall but very often, things like fried egg, luncheon meat, ikan bilis and etc were displayed. Well I guess "cheap" items and nothing fanciful from this economy fried bee hoon.
My favourite is always this fried sweet beancurd stick added to it. These are hard to find and I remembered the last trip down to Tekka Market, I have to buy a huge block of it. Of course, having a small family, this will be a ridiculous option.
Then I chanced upon it in Tampines wet market. A portion good enough for my family.
When I first started frying bee hoon for my family as a new cook, it was a daunting job. I never got it right. The noodle is either hard or too soft. The taste is not consistent as well.
These days, I am able to whip it up easily thus I am going to document this for the benefit of my children. In case, one day, they needed to cook this for themselves when I am not around.
What you need:
yield 4 servings
250g bee hoon (I love chilli brand)
beansprout (remove tail and rinse, drain)
Sweet beancurd stick, deep fried until crispy
1 tbsp Oyster sauce
3 tbsp Light soya sauce
1 tbsp Dark soya sauce
dash of pepper white pepper
3/4 cup Water
Soak bee hoon in cold water until softened. Drained.
Mix seasoning altogether and adjust to taste (to your liking).
Heat wok up, add oil and stir fry minced garlic until fragrant.
Add in bee hoon and mix well. Stir well and bring it to a boil. Test bee hoon, if it is not cooked, add in a little more water. You can also darken the bee hoon with extra dark soya.
Add in bean sprout and mix well.
Turn off heat and cover. Let it sit for 10 mins.
Serve with fried egg, fried spam and sweet beancurd stick.
The simple things in life that I enjoy.
Have a good week.
