Chee Cheong Fun

How should I describe this....hmmmm my absolute favorite dish. I know, there are too many favorites but this is it.  Especially eaten with the special sauce.  I used to have this for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Its such a simple meal but there is something to it that makes you wanting it more.


Rice Flour - 70 gm
Wheat Starch - 1 tbsp
Cornstarch - 1 tbsp
Water - 230 ml
Salt - 1/4 tsp
Oil - 3 tbsp

Put all ingredients and stir with a whisk till there is no lumps.  Set aside for about 1 hour,

Boil water in a steamer.  Grease a steaming tray ( I used a 8 in baking pan) with some oil.  Pour a thin layer and steam it for about 5 minutes or less depending how thick the layer is. Take it out, let it cool down slightly before rolling it like a swiss roll. Repeat process, cleaning and greasing the pan each time.


2 tablespoon dried shrimp - minced
2 stalks of spring onion - minced

Add these after you have poured a layer and just before steaming.


2 tsp sugar
4 tsp warm water
3 tsp soy sauce
2 tsp sesame oil
1 tsp hoisin sauce

Mix the above.  Once the rice noodles are steamed, pour this sauce over and sprinkle some sesame seeds.

mince up some dried shrimp and spring onion
The batter takes about 1 hour to ferment

Grease the pan with some oil. Dont mind my trusty ol pan..been with me for ages. Do this method each time before you pour the batter
Pour a thin layer and sprinkle with the dried shrimp and spring onion

Once it has steamed (only takes less than 5 minutes), leave it to cool slightly before rolling it with the help of a spatula
