For the longest time, I have been taking Indomie without any spicing up – boiled with its spices and a glass of juice on the side. Recently though, because of my love for cooking and exploring different ways of spicing up kawaida foods, I decided to try something out, not sure of how it would turn out.
With the country’s bond with China growing stronger, I decided to go the Chinese way with noodles, and make it to my own taste – of course on a budget!
If you are into trying out exquisite food, then you will love this. It has become one of my favorites and something I cannot wait to cook for others 😉
The best thing is that, it does not take too long to make.
Tangu my discovery of this, Misri haturudi!
Tips and tricks
The trick to the perfect noodle stir-fry is to cook the noodles until they are just slightly undercooked and then rinse them with cold water to stop the cooking process.
To keep your noodles from sticking before adding to the pan, add them back to the pan you used to boil them in after draining and toss them with a little cooking oil.
Prepare your ingredients before heating the pan. When stir-frying, things move quickly. Have everything ready before you start.
Once the oil is added, spread it around the pan to coat well.
Here’s what you will need for the dish
2 packets of Indomie (noodles)
1 tbsp vegetable oil
1 large onion sliced into thin rounds
Bell pepper (you can stick with one or choose to mix up colors in red, green and yellow)
¼ chicken fried and cut into bite-size
2 tbsp soy sauce
1-2 tspns sugar
What to do
Boil the noodles a little less than stated on the package instructions, then drain, rinse with cold water and set aside.
Heat the oil in your cooking pan over medium heat. Once hot, add the onions and stir until brown, and then add the bell pepper. Stir fry for about 2 minutes.
Add sugar, stir and cover over low heat for another minute.
Add the cooked chicken pieces and the already cooked noodles. Toss in the pan, to ensure that all ingredients are combined.
Turn the heat to medium and add the soy sauce. Stir-fry for a further 1-2 minutes hen toss to combine.
Once that’s done, serve.
There you have it. An easy way of trying out something new.
