Char Kway Teow

A popular fried noodle dish in Asia and can be found in almost every hawker centre/ food court. One of the reasons why I love this is because its skewed towards the sweeter side of a savory dish. It's not particularly a healthy dish when you eat them outside because of the tons of lard / oil they use to fry. So here's a healthier version of my mum's recipe which I emulated. 

-garlic, 2-3 cloves minced
-half chinese sausage, sliced thinly
-1 cup beansprout
-sweet black sauce ( to taste) depends on how sweet you want your noodles to turn out
- 2eggs,beaten
-1 cup chye sim
-1 lb Kway teow or flat rice noodles
-sugar (to taste)
-oil for frying (abt 2 tbsp)

1) Heat oil in a wok. Add garlic and stir fry 30sec.
2) Add the chinese sausage next and fry until almost cooked
3)Reduce heat and add bean sprout and chye sim. Fry until about cooked then add in noodles.
4) Add in sauce till the sweetness/blackness desired.
5) Scrap noodles to the sides of the pan and add in egg in the middle to cook.
6) When egg has just set, fry noodles together with egg.
