Ok this is a simpler recipe of Fried Tom Yam Bee Hoon … I usually fry this using tom yam paste but inspired by my cousin during the Eid visitation to her house, I decided to try out myself.
Alhamdulillah ….It turns out good! …. “sedapp” as claimed by my daughter and her friends 🙂
It is mild in the form of the tom yam flavour compared to if I’m using the tom yam paste itself …. but thanks to the flavour of lemongrass and kaffir lime leaves, you can still taste the likeness of tom yam in it.
