Fried Instant Noodles with Dark Soy Sauce

For the past weeks, there have been several wedding receptions to attend which means no dinners at home during the weekends.  So I kept my lunch simple as I didn't buy too much of fresh groceries as there won't be much cooking. 

This is a simple stir fry noodles where all ingredients are usually available in the kitchen.
It's kind of comfort food but quite complete for weekend lunch.
The original recipe uses 250 grams of longevity noodles but I replaced it with instant noodles.  
Recipe Source - Yum Yum Magazine No. 77

Hi Kimmy, I also like this kind of "instant" noodles for my lunch. Easy to cook and surely satisfying to eat :)

Hi Baby Sumo, sometimes I thought this is lazy cooks' dish. I dare not cook this noodle in my in-laws place but it is satisfying to eat. I like it with more vegetables.

Hi Kimmy,

Nutritional thoughts aside... I reckon that instant noodles are yummy and like the way how you cooked.


Kimmy said...

Hi Sonia, the usual way is add noodles then sauces. Here, I fry dark soy sauce with garlic before adding noodles. There is a difference in fragrance and colour.

Kimmy said...

Hi Joyce, a simple noodle dish that can be prepared anytime.

Kimmy said...

Hi Zoe, I think this noodle would be good too, if I were to fry whole garlic with skin until brown then add soy sauce. Will try this next time.

Kimmy, I always love fried noodles and love to eat it with pickled green chillies.

Hi Phong Hong, I like my fried noodles with either pickled green chillies, red chillies or sambal belacan, so long as they are spicy enough.
