Sarawak Tomato Kway Teow

All along what I know everytime I see this kind of dish is only Singapore Hor Fun
I didn't know that Sarawak also has similar dish
My family always loves hor fun, so I knew that I had to try this dish when I saw Veronica from Peng's Kitchen cooked this dish

What you need:

300g chicken breast, diced
300g squid
1 big carrot, peel and slice
100g bokchoy, cut
150g fried fishcake, sliced
2 tbsp chopped garlic
2 tbsp chicken stock powder with 2 cups of water
3 tbsp cornflour mixed with 2 cups of water
2 tbsp tomato sauce
1 tbsp sugar
1 tbsp oyster sauce
2 tsp dark sweet soya sauce (kecap manis)
1 tsp pepper
dash of sesame oil

To marinate the chicken and squid:
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1 tsp wine
  1. Marinate chicken and squid and set aside
  2. Prepare kwayteow by separating with cold water
  3. Heat oil and fry kway teow briefly on high heat
  4. Add in kecap manis and mix evenly til brown, remove from wok and set aside
  5. Heat 1 tbsp oil and half of the garlic, fry til fragrant
  6. Add carrot and stir fry for around 2 minutes
  7. Add fishcake and bokchoy, stir fry til tender, remove from wok
  8. Heat 1 tbsp oil, add balance of the garlic, fry til fragrant
  9. Add chicken, stir fry for around 2 minutes
  10. Add squid, stir fry briefly
  11. Add stock water and seasonings, bring to boil
  12. Add cornflour, bring to boil til thick
To serve:
  1. Place fried kwayteow on a serving plate
  2. Garnish with some vegetables and fishcake
  3. Scoop over chicken and squid with the gravy

Overall, we love this dish, but yes, it's rather to the sweet side a little

  2. Never heard of this sarawak tomato kway teow before! Looks delicious! Cannot remember whether have I eaten this in Kuching last year....!! :)

  3. You are right, this looks like our seafood hor fun. I love this dish but home cooked just lack that "wok" taste.

  4. Hehehe sweet! Next time I will just omit the sugar :p

  5. At one glance I thought this is the "watan-hor" but it's different as I read through the recipe. It's sweet with tomato flavor whereas "watan-hor" is savoury :)

    You make me wanna try it out (tomato-sauce fan here!) instantly.

  6. Miss kway teow! The soup looks filling and delish!

  7. I love kuey teow and have been meaning to make this! Looks delicious, Alice!

  8. Alice, this look so delicious! I could wollop two plates!

  9. i remember the first time i saw in fb, i thought it's like wat tan hor ( fried noodles with egg gravy) it really looks delicious!
