Seafood Hor Fun Recipe

A wise man once told me if you can read, you can cook.
I went through many Hor Fun recipes online and finally managed to modify a few to come up with mine. (Tada!!!)
Singapore Seafood Hor Fun (Fried Kway Teow with gravy) made from home

1) 400g of Kway Teow (It's usually one packet which normally feeds 2)
A cheaper option
for you to try
2) Prawns, cleaned and veined (Quantity up to you)
3) 400g sotong, cleaned and sliced (Again if you want more, please feel free)
4) 250g of pork, thinly sliced (You may want to use chicken or beef is fine)
5) 1 packet of Cai Xin (Cut into three parts. If you want more, so be it)
6) 1 clove of garlic, minced
(Do note that there are other sauces required for the individual portions which I have bold in the text below)

For the Pork
1) Marinade the pork with 1 tablespoon of light soy sauce, a dash of pepper and 1/2 teaspoon of cornflour for 10 minutes
2) Stir fry the pork and set aside

For the Kway Teow
1) Mix in 2 tablespoons of Kicap Manis (Sweet Soy Sauce) and 2 teaspoons of dark sauce into the noodles and put aside
2) Heat 2 tablespoons of oil in your wok on high.
3) Throw in your Kway Teow and stir fry for a couple minutes
4) Dish out the noodles and set aside

Using the same wok, put in the garlic and fry till fragrant. Throw in the vegetables, prawns and sotong and stir fry till cooked. Dish out the ingredients while leaving the 'juice' from the seafood and vegetables in the wok.

Here's what it should
look like
Add in 4 cups of chicken stock (about 1litre) into the wok. (You may either use the packet chicken stock or mix a cube of chicken stock into water).
When it is boiling, lower the heat and add 2 tablespoons of oyster sauce, 2 tablespoons of sugar and a dash of white pepper. (If you are worried it will be too "salty", add in one tablespoon of oyster sauce first, otherwise, season according to your taste)
Mix 2 tablespoon of cornflour into 2 tablespoons of water and pour it in to thicken the mixture. (You may add more to your desired consistency)
Turn off the fire.
Lightly beat two eggs and pour into the mixture and stir.

Plate the Hor Fun into a dish with the rest of the ingredients and pour the gravy over.

This recipe is definitely a keeper! So far the people who tried it, have given their nod of approval. :P
If you have tried it, let me know how it turned out for you! :)
