Hi Friends, when I was working, fried rice vermicelli garnished with shallots was my favorite breakfast bought for me by the tea lady named Ah Kam in my office,
I always remember this tasty dish cooked with just 3 ingredients, rice vermicelli shallots and dark soy sauce. As I enjoy savoring this dish, I am glad to share this recipe with You.
The successful of this dish depend on the texture of rice vermicelli after soaking with boiling water, as it has to heat up again and stir fry after mixing the condiments to it.
To spice up this fried vermicelli with more delicious flavors, I have added vegetable spring rolls.
Kindly take note of the cooking shallots method as they enhance the flavor of fried rice vermicelli.
