Ipoh Sar Hor Fun

                   This is specially dedicated to  all of you, especially to Malaysians staying/studying abroad and now you can Enjoy this feast. Ipoh Kueh Teow, something most of us cannot do without, is a lovely comfort food especially on cold, wet days/nites and slurping the soup, sorry, brings alot of satisfaction plus the added satisfaction that it is home made.

                      If you are new in my blog, welcome, just a note to say that in all the recipes in my blog if it mentions cup or spoons, THEY  are all cake measuring spoons, cake measuring cups and cake measuring jugs :)
