Char Kway Teow 炒粿條

IMG20161127230427.jpg

I remembered this was one of the first local dishes i cooked for Ben and his parents. Looking back, my cooking skills have improved by leaps and bounds! I have tried cooking this a few times and i am finally happy with this recipe! This is a very popular dish in Singapore with a bad reputation for being unhealthy. Traditionally, this is fried with pork lard and served with extra crispy fried pork lard (like many local dishes, i know, we are very unhealthy people lol!). I made this a healthier version, fried with olive oil. I could not find any blood cockles so i omitted it, feel free to add it in for a more authentic dish!
