Fried Teo Chew Mee Tiau (Noodles without preservatives)

Teo Chew mee tiau is a type of mee (noodles) that uses salt as preservatives, so you don’t have to add any salt when cooking it. It is sold in dried form and can be bought from wet market or hypermarket. I got this packet of mee tiau from Tesco Mutiara, PJ. Teo Chew people will normally fry it plain without adding any dark soya sauce and eggs but in this recipe I used dark soya sauce. Some people says that it is tastier without dark soya sauce but some says otherwise. As for me, I prefer to fry it with dark soya sauce and eggs. Ingredients Teo Chew Mee Tiau, 1 packet, blanched in boiling water until soft, drain away the water. Garlic, 10 pcs, chopped into small pieces Eggs, 3 pcs Dark Soya Sauce, 1 teaspoon Light Soya Sauce, 1 tablespoon Beans sprout (taugeh), 1 packet (RM0.50) Chinese chives (kuchai), (optional), cut into small strips Heat up wok and add 4 table spoon of vegetable oil. Sauteed garlic until fragrant. Add in the eggs and fry for a short while before adding the light soya sauce. Put in the cooked mee tiau, add dark soya sauce and fry for around 2 minutes. Add Chinese chives and bean sprouts. Fry for around 1 minute and the dish are ready. Note: Do not add salt. The mee tiau has already got lots of salt in it. Teo Chew Mee Tiau that I bought from Tesco........Yummy mee tiau.............drooling...........

That reminds me! I bought this dried kway teow, either from Tesco in SP or the Store. It's still in the pantry. Must cook it sometime and post on it.

P.S.: U read Sunday Star? Suituapui's mentioned in the feature on Ruby Restaurant in Sibu. I understand the columnist just plagiarise from people's blogs. Never asked for permission to feature in her column!

Cool dish but lack of colors for photography.. haha. Who cares as long as it can fill up the stomach, right? :P

Anyway, maybe you might want to think of adding in some chopped and saute dried prawns in the dish next time. Just make sure you get rid of the saltiness by soaking them in hot water. Garnishing it with some fried shallots would also make the dish more fragrant. :)

Misti : Ya, must ask STP for his autograph lorr! 'Sek Mee'?, not sure abt this mee. Any other name?

Criz : If you blanch the mee long enough it will not be salty. Ha Ha, put so many extra garnishing, not enough time lorr. Normally, I cook this mee for my kids before they go to school in the morning. Hv to wake up at 5 am. LOL

the normal 'cooked mee', sek as in cooked. my pronunciation abit half bucket shit. hahhaa. oh dear, mention the word shit at a food blog. sumimasen.

Pete said...

Misti : I think you will find Mee Tiau more tasty than the normal mee because the salt that is used to preserved it is all inside the mee distributed evenly. Some more very easy to cook compare with the normal mee. Happy cooking!

Haha... no wonder you need to make it so simple. Try crab sticks instead. It's easy... from freezer to wok. If you want cook faster meals for your kids for school, I would recommend Emperor's Noodles (Pigeon Brand "Wong Tai Min"). Stir the noodles for 1-1.5 min in boiling water and drain well. Strips some sausages, fry, add in eggs. Stir. Put in the noodles and sauce. Stir evenly and serve. All within 10 minutes :P
