Fried Beehoon with Ikan Bilis January 5, 2007

Posted by Angeleyes in Halal, Noodles, Snack.

Yesterday was the 15th of the Lunar calendar and as usual, MIL will go for a vegetarianĀ lunch at one of the temple at Bayan Lepas and I went along. We had vegetarian buffet @ RM8 per person and both of us were so full we can hardly walk! šŸ˜› After lunch, sheĀ decided to visit her sister who lives nearby but she’s not home yet so we went to Giant to do some shopping. As we were so full, MIL said she don’t feel like having dinner but my PiggyBeng still need to eat mah so suggested to herĀ that I’llĀ fried beehoon instead. So bought some taupok (tofu puffs) and lettuce to add in.

We did not have any meat at home so I used ikan bilis and this is how it turned out…



  • 1 pkt Beehoon
  • 80g Ikan bilis (anchovies)
  • 1 pkt Taupok (9 pcs)
  • 1 stick Carrot
  • 6pcs Shallots
  • 4 Chili padi
  • 2 Eggs
  • 150g Lettuce
  • Black soy sauce
  • Light soy sauce
  • Pepper
  • 2 cups Water


  1. Soak beehoon in water or boil for 3 minutes, sieved and put aside.
  2. Heat wok with 3 tbsp oil and fry the ikan bilis till golden brown, lift and put aside.
  3. Fry shallots with the oil which you used to fry the ikan bilis, add in chopped chili padi and continue stirring, add in shredded carrot and sliced taupok (add 1tbsp oil in between frying).
  4. Add in beehoon, stir, add in black soy sauce (your preffered tone), stir, add in light soy sauce, stir, add water, stir and cover for 2-3 minutes or until all water is being absorbed. (If you think the beehoon is not soft enough, do add in more water)
  5. Beat eggs and pour over the beehoon and continue to stir till eggs are mixed well, add in pepper.
  6. Throw in the shredded lettuce and stir for a while, serve.
