NON-fried Fried Vermicelli (Bee Hoon)

“Should not miss this”

“ Must not miss this”

Again

Step right up folks. Yessirree! You’ve read right. NO frying to produce this:-I swear (It seems to be the current 'in' thing to do) on my heaviest cookbook.

Ingredients:-

1) Stock soup. Mine was pre-prepared and kept refrigerated for many uses. Otherwise, just dissolve stock cubes in water. Or small cheap RM0.70 (maybe less) premixes paste like this.

2) Bottled Tomato sauce or Chilli sauce or Sambal Udang Kering. Again this is something I would prepare in bulk and kept refrigerated.

3) Mixed vegetables. My fridge only held some leftover Chinese cabbage and 1 stick of carrot.Larder empty. Think most of you would have mushrooms and many other greens. Just add whatever you fancy. Meat if affordable, would be very good.

4) A bundle of Dry strands of bihun or vermicelli (replaceable by any types of noodles). For dry noodles, rinse under running water to rid probable dust and dirt. DO NOT soak until soft.

Method:-

  • Easy step A
    Pour Stock with ingredients 2. into wok. Do add in the meat (if any) to cook here. Fire up until boil.

  • Easy step B
    Put in 3. and salt or sugar to taste.

  • Easy step C:-
    Add 4. Stir to mix well until dry. If the dry noodles were soften beforehand, the final product may turn gooey, no?

  • Serve.

In the spirit of our beloved country’s Independence Day, I have opted for a most economical tummy filling dish. After all, as Malaysians (no home in China), I believe I must make an effort to adopt our oh-so practical National Campaign since a majority of proud Malaysians would not have elected a high flying nincompoop to rule and govern right?

Okay, maybe some think it’s irrelevant today as lo and behold, our country’s fixed petrol price had unexpectedly flipped earlier than the date announced. Hey, no political manouvering this. Just another act by a considerate authority to give back to its loyal citizens.

Oh I digressed. Back to why my dish is kept economical (especially in comparison to my celebration last year). Other than the fact the reduced percentage compared to the June increase is negligible, chances of calling (especially by our wise and considerate government) for traders to lower their prices in line with the reduction in commodities will flop.

H a p p y M e r d e k a M al a y s i a n s.

Look, Babe, I finally made it this year!
