Kway Teow Goreng – Indonesian Stir Fried Broad Rice Noodles
Kway Teow Goreng
On our trip to Indonesia, We enjoyed the beach but we also equally enjoyed the food. In particular this Wide rice noodle dish (Kway Teow Goreng) with chicken and mixed greens really impressed me. I asked my friend from Indonesia, Amelia for her Moms recipe and tried it a few times. It’s so easy and it tastes great! The Rice noodles Or Kway Teow Noodles, can be purchased in two forms. Precooked in the cold section – Asian Foods OR dry and often labeled as Rice Sticks.
One thing to keep in mind is not to overcook the noodles. They need to stay intact while stir frying, they break rather easily.
