Although I’ve made wat tan hor a couple of times, using the KOKA Silk Chicken Pho Fettuccine in this recipe was definitely a brand new experience in terms of cooking and taste!

Cooking time was reduced as the KOKA Silk noodles cooked way faster than normal flat rice noodles. Thus, do make sure that the noodles are blanched not more than 1 minute in hot water as you won’t want to see clumpy rice balls when you move on to stir-frying them!

When stir-frying the KOKA Silk noodles, be gentle as these noodles are way thinner and more delicate. They tend to break easily and as such, it will be much easier if you fry them quickly over high heat. This will give an additional touch of burnt smokiness for that wok hei which you will surely delight in.

All that hard work that went to ensuring the KOKA Silk noodles were cooked perfectly certainly didn’t go to waste as it resulted in one of the best homemade wat tan hor I’ve ever tasted! Aside from flavouring the chicken, there was no need for the addition of salt or pepper as the seasoning did all the job in optimising the taste of the dish.
