Homestyle Char Bee Hoon 炒米粉

As WordPress users, you know that there’s a section in the dashboard that shows you the most popular post for the day, week, etc… etc… And for every week since I started The Bonding Tool (TBT) Blog, Char Bee Hoon Recipe 炒米粉 has always been the top 3 most viewed post without fail. It also tops the chart about 95% of the time, maybe more!

Recently, Vanessa has been craving for Homestyle Char Bee Hoon. She bought the ingredients and kept them in the larder. Last week, I had the time and cooked for her this evergreen favourite dish of hers. While frying the rice sticks, I was reminded of the time when I cooked a huge batch (to be frozen) just before I left Melbourne.

Char Bee Hoon (char 炒 = fry, and bee hoon 米粉 = rice sticks, vermicelli) is a very popular meal prepared by Singaporean housewives for their family especially on days when the wifey runs out of idea cooking 3 dishes 1 soup set dinner. You will frequently see fried bee hoon in a housewarming, baby showers and children’s birthday parties. Since this was the last dish (and one of those prepared meals for deep-freezing I cooked for Vanessa the dawn I left Melbourne), I might as well share the recipe here. – TBT’s post on 8th Feb 2013

I like my Char Bee Hoon moist but Vanessa liked them dry and fluffy.
Guess she wins :p

Still too moist for her but a little airing will dry out the Char Bee Hoon in no time.

    I thought the kids did all the cooking for you these days? 🙂 Nothing like a home made meal from mum, and a family recipe. Hope you’re having a great weekend.
