Penang Char Kue Tiau

Just a quick update today as my to-do list is so long and my list of wish-to-do is of the same length! We'll see what I end up with... hopefully, I'll managed to settle at least 50% of the to-do list and try to forget about the wish-to-do! Hahaha....

Anyway, last Monday evening, my brother didn't tell me in good time, that he's coming over to fetch my mom. He only called me when he was on the way here. I normally will bake or cook something for him to bring home for my nephew and nieces. Given so little time to think, I managed to bake some puffs and cooked Char Kue Tiau Penang (first trial) for mom to break her fast. So in 45 minutes time, and considered just the perfect timing, mom managed to break her fast without having to fast extra time and I am a happy aunt to be able to pack something for her nephew and nieces. Hahaha.. do I feel like I am in MasterChef? Well, the feel is there but never in my life, imagining myself entering the contest. Will fail in the first step! Trust me! Hahaha....

I was watching this Youtube on how to fry char kue tiau and decided to give it a try, though frankly speaking, I have doubts at first. It can't be that easy and yet tasty, can it? Well, if you don't dare to try, then it will stay as a questionmark forever... so yes, no harm trying.. surprisingly, it tasted good though not as good as the Pakcik at Upin Ipin Restaurant's Char Kue Tiau. Why? Because the very same night, we went for the pakcik's char kue tiau! Hahahaha....

For the recipe, please adjust the amount of the ingredients according to your tastebuds ya. You can refer to the Youtube too for the cooking demo.
