update 10th November ~ niece is still in labour....   she just gave birth to a baby Girl (11-11-10)... 4 generations of ladies/females will be under the same roof : great grandmother, grandmother, new mom and baby... :)..

  • 1 packet of rice sticks or kway tiow *
  • 500g beef - thinly sliced
  • 1 canned baby corn - cut in half
  • 4 tablespoon red curry paste
  • 1/2 cup roasted peanuts - coarsely grounded
  • 1/2 cup of fresh coriander leaves
  • 2 tablespoon of fish sauce

In a wok, stir fry half the sliced beef with 2 tablespoon of oil for 2 minutes, transfer to a plate. Repeat for the other half. With the remaining oil, add the red curry paste, cook until fragrant. Then add rice sticks with 1/4 cup of water or beef stock. Cook until the rice sticks is tender. Then return the beef to the wok. Stir to mix well. Then add in fish sauce, peanut and 2 tablespoon of sugar. Garnish with fresh coriander and lime.

*note: soak the rice sticks in cold water overnight or soaked in boiling water for 5 minutes. The later will give a slightly mushy texture....
