Chap Chai – Simple can be So Good!

a simple dish of chap chai can be so good!

i made this 3 times recently-

  1. homecooked 12pax dinner for friends on 9.5.2016
  2. RI FGS (For Goodness Sake) Charity Dinner on 20.5.2016 &
  3. most recently, my 7th community lunch dish for bathesda community’s newgate learning lab (bread of life). ^^

it was really so easy to make & so nice to savour! 🙂

i fried chopped garlic & 1 cut chilli padi in 2tbsp oil then added cut cabbage & long beans.

fried for a while then added fish sauce & oyster sauce, just turning over the pieces at the bottom of the wok. about 5 mins.

then i added 3 cups (720ml) of chicken stock, and added cut taupok slices, brought to boil, turned to medium fire & covered for about 20mins for veg & taupok to soften & to reduce the stock.

then added tan hoon, tossed & off the fire.

it’s that easy!

i did chap chai for the 1st RI FGS (For Goodness Sake) Charity Dinner on 20.5.2016 as well. a very popular dish. ^^

likewise  for a recent homecooked 12pax dinner for friends on 9.5.2016.

a very enjoyable lunch. chap chai was very good. cabbage sweetness + taupok yellow bean sweetness + chicken stock sweetness & reduced. & tanhoon gave some additional texture.

So, doesn’t require much to make a wonderful dish la…
