Char Kway Teow

Course summary

You will cook Char Kway Teow––the perfect amount of seasonings and fish sauce, charred rice noodles, and the art of “wok hay.”

Char Kuey Teow is a classic rice noodle dish from Malaysia, but it’s also very popular in other Southeast Asian countries like Singapore and Indonesia. A bit similar to Cantonese Chow Ho Fun Rice Noodles, Char Kway Teow is a hearty dish that’s filled with meat, veggies, and chewy noodles. The student will also learn the technique of using a wok.
