Koay teow goreng 1st try =p~
My favourite 'kedai makan' staple is fried koay teow. My friends must've noticed this as once, when the waitress was taking the order, Yun told the waitress, "Budak tu tak makan bende lain selain koay teow goreng" haha..
Anyway, nowadays I try other things as well but my favourite is still the koay teow.. and of all things, this is the among the things I have never tried cooking myself. To me, it won't look like koay teow if I was to fry it myself.. it might just turn into beehoon if you make me fry it.
Now, a few days ago I opened Mas's blog and found her entry on koay teow you can read here. I was fasting then and you know la nafsu orang pose camne kan so I was VERY tempted to try since she made it sound soooo easy.
An hour later, I found myself meredah hujan in the pasar malam searching for some of the ingredients hahaha.. the next morning pun same, I went to the market to buy the remaining things I didn't get to buy the day before.
Maka bermule lah operasi 'Koay Teow 1st Try Ayu'
I was fasting that day too so it was only around 6pm that I started preparing for the koay teow. And voila..
Heheh.. thats what it looked like in the wok. Not impressive, I know.. but to me, it was an accomplishment hehe..
And this was what I had for iftar.. yeay!
Thanx ye Mas!
P/S The recipe required a whole packet of koay teow which I couldn't really finish by myself. After putting aside some for sahur, I gave the remaining almost a big bowlful of koay tow to my neighbours. Sib bek diorg tak sakit perut ok =p
P/P/S I usually ngade manje with Izati asking her to make some for me coz she makes a mean koay teow goreng. When I sent her an MMS of my own friend koay teow, she replied, "Oittt, jgn curik specialty Ti" Hahaha..
