I out did myself as this plate of fried tang hoon (glass noodle) was so delicious! I added my secret ingredient, minced anchovies just to test how it would turn out. The glass noodle was not broken into pieces and the bean sprout was crunchy and everything just came so well together. I used chives because I saw a Chinese cooking show which said chives was really good for our body as it had the ability to clean the poison out of your body system. Listening to that I was sold, we needed to eat more chives from now on. Chives seem to be very easy to plant here during summer. Guess I will have more chives recipes coming out too.
My plate of fried glass noodle with ground pork! Another secret ingredients is the fried eggs, you got to have eggs in this to bring out the overall flavor. The glass noodle I used for this stir-fry is called Special Grade Bean Thread from China. It has two red dragons on the cover. I added it here so that next time I would know which brand to get for stir-fry, if my memory served me right, this brand is not expansive.
I'm sharing this noodle with Presto Pasta Nights, an event created by Ruth from Once Upon a Feast. This week host is Cynthia, The Kitchen Slave! Check out her delicious round up on April, 23rd!
