Spicy Stir-Fried Rice Noodle

"A wonderful and easy way to cook a 1-plate meal for two! It incorporates both Chinese and Malaysian style of cooking. The crispy anchovies are REALLY good! It will be waaay more yummy if you add some meat e.g. diced chicken, pork or shrimps."

  1. i have made this twice. the first time i let the noodles soak for an hour and they disintergrated in the wok. the second time i soaked the rice noodles for 15 minutes and it made a big difference. this dish has alot of flavor, i added 1/2 lb of raw shrimp as well as the dried. this is a quick, easy meal.


Hi everyone! I'm addicted to recipezaar - there are so many things that I love about this site; the wonderful people, recipes, lots of great pictures and there's always someone who'll answer my cooking/baking/general question. I grew up in Malaysia, but now live in sunny Singapore. Both are beautiful tropical (read: HOT!) countries in Southeast Asia. There are so many good food here, especially ethnic stuff like spicy Malaysian curries (which will clear the worst blocked nose), flaky & crispy Indian roti paratha/canai, homey Chinese stir-fries, rich & decadent Asian desserts like kuih lapis (Malay many-layers cake), pineapple tarts, crumbly peanut cookies etc. <img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v632/zaarfreak/REI/12may05REI2_S.jpg" alt="Image hosted by Photobucket.com">
