This kway teow has a nice and smooth texture with a 'bounce'. Perfect for cutting up into strips for char kway teow (fried rice noodles).


  • Makes ½ kg

  • 150g rice flour

  • 1½ tablespoon Wheat starch flour

  • 2 tablespoons Corn flour

  • 400 ml cold water

  • 1 tablespoon Oil

  • ½ teaspoon Salt

  • 2 non stick square cake pan (20cm x 20cm)


  • 1.

    Mix the rice flour, wheat starch flour and corn flour together.

  • 2.

    Add the water and stir continuously.

  • 3.

    Add in the oil, salt and mix thoroughly.

  • 4.

    Rest the batter for at least an hour.

  • 5.

    Prepare your steamer.

  • 6.

    When the water is boiling, ladle ½ cup of batter onto the cake pan.

  • 7.

    Tilt the pan around to ensure the batter is evenly distributed.

  • 8.

    Steam for about 4-5 mins on high.

  • 9.

    Remove the pan from the steamer and leave to cool slightly (I leave it on a tray of ice cold water to quicken the process) before using a scrapper to fold the kway teow.

  • 10.

    While waiting for the kway teow to cool, put in the next pan to steam.

  • 11.

    Cut into thin strips for fried kway teow. The noodle sheets can be kept in airtight containers in the fridge for 3 days.


Winter is the best time to make kway teoh because of the cold weather, you need not use tray of ice cold water.
