Breakfast Chee Cheong Fun


I love this type and style of chee cheong fun for breakfast and have been trying to get the texture right but have not been able to get it right until now. Now, my quest is over, i can have this type of chee cheong fun for breakfast with no fuss no muss. A piece of chee cheong fun can be made in the microwave for only 2 minutes without having to heat up a pot of water for steaming or using a crepe pan to fry which is not too bad but the underside sometimes tend to be overcooked and so will be slightly rough.

1 cup cooked rice
3 cups water
1 cup rice flour
1/4 cup cake flour
3 tbsp tapioca starch
1/2 tsp salt
1 tbsp cooking oil
More oil for brushing

For the Sauce

1/2 cup hoisin sauce
1/4 cup sugar
2 tbsp sesame paste
2 tbsp soya sauce
1 cup water


For the Sauce: 

Mix all the ingredients together and cook in the microwave for 2 minutes until sugar is dissolved and sesame paste is well combined.

For the Chee Cheong Fun Batter:

Blend 1 cup cooked rice with 2 cups water until liquified.

Mix the remaining 1 cup water with 1 cup rice flour, 1/4 cup cake flour, 3 tbsp tapioca starch and salt until well combined.

Add this to the liquified cooked rice batter and blend well.

Pass this blended batter through a fine sieve and leave overnight in the fridge (i have used the batter straight without resting and it made good chee cheong fun but resting made better ones)

Follow the instructions below on how to microwave the batter.

Use a plastic container which has a very flat base.  This one is 8 inch x 9 inch


Grease the base of plastic container


Add 1 tbsp cooking oil and stir the batter very well before scooping a ladle full which is 1/2 cup.  Remember to stir everytime you scoop the batter to make a next piece of chee cheong fun

Pour batter into greased plastic container

Tilt the plastic container until the base is covered with batter

1/2 cup of batter is just right to cover the base of this plastic container

Cover the filled plastic container with cling wrap and cook in the microwave on high for 2 minutes

Remove plastic container from microwave and let it sit for 5 minutes before removing the cling wrap.  Be very careful when you remove the cling wrap,.   Remove the cling wrap that is furthest away from you so that the steam will not burn you.

Brush the cooked chee cheong fun with oil

Using a bench scraper, scrape the chee cheong fun out of the plastic container.  Chee cheong fun is ready to be enjoyed.


Cut up a few rolled up chee cheong fun into bite size and add in a couple of spoons of the sauce(recipe is above), i like more than a couple, the more sauce, the better.  Then drizzle in a little Fragrant oil - oil used for preparing Fried Shallots. Sprinkle with roasted sesame seeds and fried shallots. If you prefer spicy, add in some chilli sauce like Siracha or Sambal Olek or better still some pickled green chilly/jalapeno.  I remembered being served with pickled long beans of which i have not seen these pickled long beans for more than 50 years.  I must try to make some.
