Mushroom Stuffed Potato Cakes

This recipe is from my friend Sushma, who had previously given the recipe for Shahi Paneer. I have not tried this dish before and if I were to make it, I think I will substitute something else for the mushrooms, as I am not a huge fan of it. Perhaps some mixed veggies would be…

Bee Hoon is basically rice vermicelli which is a thin form of rice noodles. There are so many recipes using the rice noodles, so I’ll start off with my all-time favourite which is my mum’s recipe and she learnt it from some relatives in India. Of course, by now, she has modified it a bit…….

Kway Teow Goreng
