|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.
