Chapchae/Japchae

Mum always made such good chapchae/japchae that I was a little afraid to make my own version. I’m proud to say that they taste a lot like hers.  She would be too, I think.

Japchae or Chapchae - Korean noodles

There are many good recipes out there and mine is loosely based around this one at Steamy Kitchen and sneaky observation of mum making her version, of course.

  1. Oooooh! My mom makes chopchay (my hacked spelling of it) too! I have successfully recreated it a few times. I’ve had it at a couple restaurants but it’s never as good as my Korean mom’s recipe!

  2. Yum! Looks so delicious!

  3. Ooohh! I simply LOVE anything dat’s Glass Noodles. U know it’s not easy to stir fry Glass Noodles.(as they tend to stick together & become clumpy)Fm yr pics, I can tell U did an excellent job! Yums!

  4. I was just looking at the recipe for this last evening. Since it is so serendipitous, I shall attempt the noodles.

  5. Cin: It’s not glass noodles, it’s sweet potato noodles. Thicker than regular glass noodles and chewier. It’s not commonly found in SG. I think my mum had to go to Chinatown to find it.

    Ljc: I’m sure your mom’s recipe must be the best! Would you share it some time?

    Shawn: Did you make it yet?
