Cooking Idea: Bak Kut Teh Prawn Noodles
This is my lazy, cheater’s way of making steaming hot bowl of hawker-style Bak Kut Prawn Noodles, as inspired by tigerfish’s Soba in Bak Kut Teh soup. I simply use a packet of Bak Kut Teh spice (you can use any favourite brand) to cook for 2 persons (about 300g of spare ribs, garlic cloves and dark soy sauce). When the soup is ready, I added 6 large prawns and fish cake slices in the broth to cook for a few minutes. Toss in some noodles (I used a mixture of yellow and white noodles which has been blanched in boiling water) and local lettuce in a bowl and pour the bak kut teh together with the bak kut, prawns and fish cake over. Voila! – a nice bowl of cheater’s home-made Bak Kut Prawn noodles.
Easy pesy, and a nice change if you are bored of serving Bak Kut Teh the usual, heavenly way :)
