Char Kway Teow.. the dish that I used to eat a maximum of once a year, if not once every two years. I remember when I first met Jason, I had quite a culture shock knowing that he had CKT once every two weeks or once a month. Same for Laksa. It has never occurred to me that anyone can eat these so frequently, until the girls and I were discussing this one night at Ru’s place, and then I realised I am the “weird” one. They all felt it is ok to eat Char Kway Teow once every two weeks.
So my right hand is in a hard plastic splint so I can’t really do all the swishing you would expect of a satisfying stir-fry. But the husband still need to eat right? I decided to make one of the easiest no-effort-needed dishes I can think of: Mui Fan 烩饭.
