Quick & Easy Fried Bee Thye Mak

My daily schedule has been even more hectic since my girl started primary school. As she needs to wake up early, everything at night has to be done and completed earlier...dinner, homework, chit chat time, getting to bed. Hence on days that I want to cook, it will always be quick and easy one-pot meals like this - Fried Bee Thye Mak.

It's really fast and simple to whip this up. As I'm pressed for time to finish dinner early, I will make the preparations like washing and slicing the ingredients in the morning first before I go to work. When I reach home after work, it's just taking these ingredients out from the refrigerator and putting them into the pan to cook..and dinner will be ready in a jiffy.

I bought a packet of bee thye mak from the supermarket. I had intended to cook a soupy version but changed my mind and fried it instead. I didn't have any greens in my fridge so settled only for bean sprouts, fried tau kwa, fish cake, lup cheong (chinese sausages) and eggs to go with my bee thye mak.

It's like fried kway teow, only that I used a different noodle. I think it will taste even better if I had some lard oil and crispy fried lard cubes. Lol!!
