Chee Cheong Fun

Look yummy isn’t? Yes, this is the chee Cheong fun or rice noodle rolls where we can easily get from the wet market which is plain (no prawn) at S$0.30 per piece. Usually, this goes with black or red sweet sauce with shallot oil, sesame oil, sesame seeds plus chilli paste (which consists of dried prawn). For a vegetarian or vegan version where we can quickly churn out at home, just use olive oil, light sauce plus some sesame seeds and go with or without vegetarian chilli sauce.

Preparation: 2 mins, Cooking time: 6 mins

Ingredients (serves 1)
° 2 fresh rice noodle rolls, cut
° ¾ tablespoon olive oil
° ½ teaspoon sesame oil (optional)
° 1 tablespoon light soy sauce, or to taste
° 1 teaspoon roasted sesame seeds
° 1 teaspoon finely chopped spring onion (optional)
° 1 teaspoon crispy shallot (optional)

Method
1. Arrange the rice noodle rolls in a heatproof serving plate.
2. Bring the water in the steamer to a boil. Place the rice noodle rolls in the steamer and steam for 2-3 minutes.
3. Drizzle oil, light soy sauce over the rice noodle rolls. Sprinkle some spring onions, crispy shallot and sesame seeds. Serve immediately.

Hi SF

Chee Cheong Fun in soup, a smoother 'kway tiao'.

I tried chee cheong fun with curry in Malaysia. You know, a plate of plain chee cheong fun sprinkled with some sesame seeds and a small bowl of vegetarian curry mutton. Just imagine, roti with veg. curry mutton, replace it with chee cheong fun. Too big a plate! so was struggling.

cheers
