Step 1

Submerge the dried beehoon in hot water and let it sit until it is soft but still firm, then strain well. Stiff beehoon is wirey and not yummy.

Step 2

Meanwhile, prepare the sprouts, carrot or any other ingredients you’d like to have in the beehoon. Cut them up into thin matchsticks. It packs a better mouthful altogether.

Step 3

Mix the sauces (A) together in a bowl.

Step 4

In a hot skillet with the oil, fry the garlic and shallots till fragrant.

Step 5

Add in the softened beehoon and sauce mixture. Stir using chopsticks or thin tongs. Ladles and spatulas will smash up the long strands.

Step 6

Have a taste and adjust seasonings accordingly.

Beehoon is also known as rice vermicelli and can be found in most Asian grocery shops.
Have this with a barbecue or a simple fried egg!
