Prawn Kuey Teow ( Ho Fun)

I am really treading on old ground here. I have previously blogged on homemade Chow Kuey Teow here:

This was made exactly the same way, but with just lovely juicy tiger prawns. It's not that I have run out of stuff to blog about, but that I dont have the time at the moment to do a lengthy blog, and yet still want to keep this blog active.

So feast your eyes on this dish. I am not sure if its because of the price of rice at the moment or something else, but the ho fun I have been buying have been very brittle recently. The price has not gone up by much while price of rice has doubled. Maybe they add less rice flour and more water in the ho fun these days. The result is that the finished dish is rather broken up. However, taste is still the same, fortunately!

I'm in for the prawns too! I hardly see such big prawns in fried kuey teow unless it is seafood horfun. :)

I totally agree! Unfortunately, I did not have any handy at the time.

I would usually use spring onions. Chinese kow choy is expensive and you can only buy a big bunch at a time.

Price of rice has risen 100% in the last few months, must surely have an impact on its by products. Fortunately I still have 20kg stored in kitchen!

Thats the wonder of homemade food - you put what you want in it!
