Keto Fried Rice Cake (Char Koay Kak)

Char Koay Kak (Fried Rice Cake) is a popular street food that has a similar cooking style as Char Koay Teow.  The Koay Kak are cut into square cubes and fried in a huge round wok together with dark soya sauce, bean sprout, egg and chopped chai poh (pickled radish).

So I had a craving for char koay kak last weekend, no thanks to the char koay kak stall which I saw at the market.  I quickly bought the ingredients needed over the weekend to prepare for my keto version.


  1. Beansprout (1 packet).  Not sure how much it weighed.
  2.  2 pieces of firm tofu (cut them up into small squares)
  3.  3 eggs
  4.  1 handful of chai poh (you can add more if you want)
  5. Chives
  6. 5 cloves of garlic


  • Heat the wok or pan on the stove.
  • Saute the garlic and chai poh
  • Add the firm tofu and continue to stir fry
  • Add 1 tsp of dark soya sauce and soya sauce (to taste)
  • Create a well in the center of the pan 
  • Beat the 3 eggs in a bowl and pour in
  • Stir and toss the eggs to coat the tofu and chai poh
  • Add in beansprouts and stir fry for another minute
  • Remove and serve immediately.

Voila, this is my Keto Char Koay Kak vegetarian version.  Next time I will add in some shrimps too.  Got my cravings fixed.
