Cooking Idea: Bak Kut Teh Prawn Noodles

   

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 :)

    Cheaters+Bah Kut Teh=Major Love! Throw in the prawns, and I’m leaving my Carbonara. Great submission. I’ve been meaning to submit something to Pasta Presto for ages, but never seem to get down to it.

    Question:
    Whenever I make bah kut teh from the packet, it always seems less potent ( ‘kau’ – are you Malaysian?) than at the shops. Any idea why?

    *Slurp noodles* off the screen. The addition of prawns and fish cake really make the bak kut teh extra yummy!

    Do you like it? If you don’t feel like eating rice, this is one way to enjoy – the noodles with the soup, just like how Japanese enjoy their ramen in pork bones broth essence. Love your presentation. Can sell your noodles in claypot already. So professional!
