Stir Fried Instant Flat Noodles

Two types of chillies for fried noodles
I bought a packet of instant flat noodles with pumpkin as one of the ingredients.  Since it is vegetarian, I used it to cook a simple stir fry noodles with beansprouts and chai sim [mustard leaves] and serve it with the chilli sauce and pickled green chillies which I have prepared earlier.  Simple but definitely taste good too.
Blanched flat noodles, beansprouts and chai sim
Basic seasoning ingredients for vegetarian dish 
[serves 2]
2-3 bundles of instant flat noodles
2 stalks chai sim - clean and cut 
a handful of beansprouts - washed
2 tbsp oil and 1 tsp sesame oil
Seasoning Sauce [mix together]
2 tbsp vegetarian oyster sauce
2 tbsp light soy sauce
1/2 tbsp dark soy sauce - for colour
1/4 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp vegetarian msg
150 ml hot water 
  1. Blanched noodles in boiling water till al dente.  Drain dry and mix in some oil to prevent noodles from sticking.  Set aside.
  2. Heat oil in wok.  Add in vegetables and beansprouts to fry for a second then add in blanched noodles.  Use a wok ladle and a pair of chopsticks to combine ingredients well.  Add in seasoning, stir fry to mix well.  Then add in water.  Stir and cover to cook noodles for a minute or until the water has almost dried up.
  3. Stir and dish on to serve with  prepared chilli sauce or pickled green chillies.
  • Fried noodles also goes well with a bowl of red bean soup.
