My Mom's Spicy Char Kuey Teow(Flat Rice Noodle)

As I mentioned before,I still have plenty of my mom best home cooking post with me..I didn't managed to post all of it during my stay over there due to several reason:Busy enjoying my vacation,eating,shopping and lastly the Internet connection was sucked!! Enough said!!
One thing about my mom cooking skill that I admired is..she will goes to the length ,I mean extra route or extra work to make her dishes taste great!! I should said ...fantastic!! She said when you stir-fry Char Kuey Teow ,you should cook each portion individually if not the char kuey teow doesn't said good....that right!! I think by cooking CKT individually,you can really have the dish taste delicious that full with "wok hei"!!( high heat for fragrance)


1 kg fresh kuey teow (make 4 portions)
1/2 kg bean sprout(mung bean)washed
4 eggs
2 Chinese sausage,remove casting and sliced
1 pack or 1/2 kg fish cake,sliced
20-30 medium shrimp,shell removed and clean
500 gm lean meat,sliced (pork or chicken)
1 head iceberg lettuce or any green vegetable,clean and cut small
2 bulbs garlic,peeled and minced
1 cup cooking oil
chili boh(chili paste)
ground white pepper

Seasoning Mixed:(mix well all ingredients in a bowl)

2 tbsp chicken bouillon powder
2 tbsp caramel sauce(thick soy sauce)
4 tbsp soy sauce
2 tbsp oyster sauce

cut fresh Thais chili or red chili in soy sauce on side (optional)

Method:(Divide char kuey teow into 4 plate for each portion)
Make 1 portion

1:Heat wok or skillet at high heat.Add in 2 tbsp oil and 1 tbsp garlic,fry for 30 second before add in few sliced meat,fish cake,Chinese sausage and shrimp.Use spatula to fry the ingredients for 1 minute before toss in kuey teow,lettuce,chili boh(paste) and 2 tbsp mixed seasoning,mix well with long chop stick.(Reason: fragile kuey teow won't mashed)

2:Remove all the ingredients to a side.Add 1 tbsp oil in the center,crack egg in the center ,fry for few second before cover with the rest of ingredients.Toss in bean sprout and ground white powder pepper.Check the seasoning.

3:Dish out and serve immediately with side cut chili.Repeat the following portion the same method.
