Serves 4

400 gm dried flat rice noodles
1 Tbs peanut oil, plus 1 Tbs extra
1 tsp sesame oil
2 Tbs garlic, finely chopped
1 x 5cm piece of ginger
1 onion, sliced finely
2 skinless chicken thighs, sliced finely
1 pork chop, finely sliced, skin removed if preferred, or use lap cheong [sweet Chinese sausage]
250g mung beans
250g shrimps
1 Tbs chilli paste
2 Tbs thick dark sweet soy sauce
1 Tbs light soy sauce
2 spring onions, finely sliced
Lemon, to serve

1 Cook the noodles in boiling water for approximately 4 minutes then drain. Rinse with cold water, making sure the noodles are separated.

2 Heat a wok then add the first measure of peanut oil. Add the noodles and fry while tossing for 2 minutes then remove and set aside.

3 Heat the extra peanut oil with the sesame oil. Add the garlic, ginger, onion and chicken and the pork or the lap cheong.

4 When cooked, add the mung beans and shrimps then return the noodles to the wok.

5 Mix the chilli paste with both soy sauces and add to the wok. Taste for seasoning and add more light soy sauce if desired. Add the spring onions and serve with lemon.

Note: In traditional kway teaow, egg is usually added to the wok but for this recipe I have made it the way Felix prefers.
