Stir Fried Mee Hoon

Managed to get some time to do some stir fries cos I've gotten very tired eating outside food plus its more tiring to thinking of where to makan (eat in Malay) each day.

This one is stir fried mee hoon also known as rice vermicelli. Simple and quick to prepare.

Just need to cut carrot, green onions and cabbage into strips. Marinade chicken breast meat (cut into strips too) with some soya sauce, a dash of sesame oil and a wee bit of corn starch. Chop some garlic and soak the rice vermicelli for a short while to soften.

First brown the onions in oil before adding carrot strips. Stir and add some salt. As carrots soften, stir in cabbage until soften but not too mushy. Dish out.

Stir fry the chicken in oil till brownish then add in garlic followed by prawns. Add in some oyster sauce to taste. Stir all till cooked. Add in the vegetables and a wee bit of water then add the rice vermicelli. Fry till dry and dish up.

It's a very simple quick stir fry one dish meal. Can be done with loh shue fun (literally translated Rat Tail Noodles). The noodle is made from rice flour pressed thru some holed mold into cold water to create the shape that looked like rat's tail. For this one, I add in some scrambled eggs and used minced meat instead.
