Tasty Rice Noodles

This is just another option of serving a bowl of rice noodle aka kueh tiaw with add-on "fish products" like fish roll, fish balls - made from fish paste and stuffed fish paste in green chilly and beancurd skin. My kids loves fish rolls and fish balls, so that becomes the main choice when serving my family. A simple recipe and easy to prepare.

Our locals called it "yong tau foo" - basically it is stuffing fish paste into certain vegetables like green chilly, red chilly, brinjals, ladies fingers and roll in beancurd skin, fish balls, fish rolls etc.

Tips : What makes the soup taste real nice and giving it a good aroma is the fried garlic and garlic oil . so dont leave the soup without it!

All you need : Serve 4

  • 600gms rice noodle / kueh tiaw
  • some fish rolls, fish balls and other yong tau foo - obtainable from wet market or frozen pack
  • some beansprout (taugeh)
  • 1 piece of chicken breast meat
  • a clove of garlic - for the soup
  • a clove of garlic - chopped finely for fried garlic
  • a sprig of spring onion - for garnishing
Simple Process :

  1. Soup - Boil 2 litres of water with the chicken breast meat and a clove a garlic over medium heat for 40 minutes, add salt to taste

  2. When soup is almost ready, add in the fish roll, fish balls and others and bring to a boil, dish out the fish roll, fish balls and others - set aside

  3. Fried Garlic - heat some oil and add in the chopped garlic and saute it till golden brown over low heat. Dish it out together with the oil.
