~ Stir-fried Penang Style Noodles ~

Being an AMC cookware enthusiast, I am always on the look-out for any event/workshop conducted by pioneers or special guests invited to AMC Malaysia/Singapore. In one way or another I learn from these experts on how cooking can be done the simple, yet healthy way.

This April, a guest from Penang, the West Malaysia Northern Region’s Presidential Director of AMC Malaysia, Mr. Lim Siung Pet, was invited to AMC Singapore to conduct a cooking demonstration cum sharing session with all AMC consultants like myself. This is the second time I attended an AMC cooking demonstration conducted by a man. The first time was in 1994 when I was still a teenager. Hence, this session is one of the most precious one in my history with AMC.

Mr. Lim shared an inspiring introduction about AMC, in his most humorous way which had engaged all audience in the 2-hour long session, giving an insight about the company and detailing cooking demonstrated with the automatic cooking system using various products and their combination. Cooking shared that evening, namely Penang Fried Kway Teow, Waterless Steamed Whole Chicken, Baked Banana Cake and Steamed Glutinous Rice with Coconut Milk, were as simple as it can be.

Mr. Lim also shared how endless research is done at the AMC International level and how the AMC products have evolved from the manual cooking way to today’s fully automatic cooking system with Bluetooth technology. He jokingly said, “One day we will be able to press on an AMC new technology remote control to start cooking from our workplace.” He made a truly reflective statement, which I believe will vividly stay in my memory as long as I can remember, “We should invest into the cookware system which is for the future.”.

I learnt that in Penang, Fried Kway Teow is done with high flame, where all sellers frying it sweat profusely in order to produce the precious plate of noodles. Here I am sharing my “No Sweat” Penang Fried Kway Teow recipe which I have improvised, due to the urge to try cooking the famous dish immediately despite not having all the ingredients readily available at home, with my AMC 24cm Eurasia unit.

Stir-fried Penang Style Noodles Recipe (Serves 3) :

  1. 100 grams of Kway Teow (Flat Rice Noodles)
  2. 100 grams of Bee Hoon (Rice Vermicelli/Thin Rice Noodles)
  3. 1 tablespoon Dark Soy Sauce
  4. 1 tablespoon Light Soy Sauce
  5. 1 tablespoon Sesame Oil
  6. 2 cloves Garlic (finely chopped)
  7. 150 grams of Kai Lan (stems skin removed)
  8. 1 medium size Red Capsicum (thinly sliced)
  9. 100 grams White Button Mushrooms (thinly sliced)
  10. 100ml of Water
  11. 2 Eggs (pan-fried & stripped), optional

AMC Healthy Cooking Method :

  1. Mix Kway Teow and Bee Hoon together and marinate with the dark & light soy sauces and sesame oil.
  2. Preheat AMC 24cm 2.8 liter Eurasia unit with Navigenio heat level “4” to 50°C or “Meat Window”. Use Audiotherm as an indicator by turning it on, place on lid knob, indicating 50°C or “Meat Window”.
  3. Add garlic followed by all other ingredients into the preheated Eurasia unit. Add water and cover pot unit with lid.
  4. Switch on Navigenio to automatic “A”. Turn on Audiotherm on lid, indicating 80°C or “Carrot Window” and set 2 minutes to cook.
  5. When Audiotherm beeps, turn off both Navigenio & Audiotherm. Remove lid, add egg strips, stir well and serve.

Tips : No cooking oil is required. The noodles will not stick to the pot/pan unit as they are cooked under the temperature of 98°C for 1 minute. I cooked for 2 minutes to ensure vegetables are soft enough for my toddler’s consumption.
