Simple Is Beauty (6)

ha..  this is the best char kueh kak that i hav tested in Kelantan..  🙂

char kueh kak

the stall is located just in front of the Kim Leong Restaurant at Jalan Kebun Sultan, Kota Bharu..

it is owned by a Chinese auntie, who has running the business for more than 15 years..  🙂

char kueh kak

char = fried

kueh kak = white carrot cake

in some places, including Kuching, we just call it char kueh (in Hokkien dialect)..

and in some places they use rice-flour cake instead of white carrot cake..

for a better taste, the flat pan / wok must be hot enough with some cooking oil and finely chopped garlic before putting the carrot cake..

then add an egg..

for those who like spicy food, then add in some chili sauce..  🙂

after that, adding soy sauce and mix well..

in some places, there are two versions of char kueh kak, mainly depends on what type of soy sauce they used..  the dark / thick soy sauce will give the sweet version char kueh kak, whereas the light soy sauce will make the salty version char kueh kak..  🙂

here in this stall she makes the sweet version..  🙂

other ingredients include the chai po (pickled vegetable) and been sprouts..  in some places, they put shrimp as well..

    Wazzup Doc
    Hi from Borneo too. Funny you say Borneo. Not Malaysia. Anyway, doc. Just passing by. Stumbled into your blog. Oh ! I am a staff nurse. Are you still single ? ha ! ha ! Don’t worry. I am an old auntie too. Glad to know you love to travel and blog. I have a blog but cannot tell you the address. Sorry. May be one day you stumble into my blog too. Sometimes if I am in Kuching I buy the char kueh from the coffee shop near to Harbour View hotel. But I never want to miss kolok. That’s one of my favourites. Anyway, continue to blog. If I happen to pass by again, I’ll drop some comments again. Take care. Rest and relax. Be nice to your patients. Be fair to everyone.
