Yesterday I tried boiling my noodles, the way I grew up cooking it as a lazy cook, but I didn’t enjoy it and I realized I should have just stuck to my stir-fried noodles. Laziness takes the blame for that experiment.
When you hear stir-fry, what comes to mind? Rice? Spaghetti? Well, you cam stir-fry your noodles too and it would come out delicious. I think it also looks better on the eyes.
– Vegetable oil
– Scotch bonnet
– Vegetables (Carrot, green pepper, green pea)
– Soy sauce
– Oyster sauce
– Wok, frying pan or saucepan
– Pasta fork
1) You can use any noodles of your choice, but ensure you read its cooking instructions. That way you don’t overcook it and end up with soggy stir-fried noodles.
2) The choice of vegetables is your choice. You can add or subtract.
3) Sauces make a lot of difference. You wouldn’t know till you try. So you can invest in those beauties and use them in your stir-fries.
4) A wok is a deep frying pan and it is advisable for stir frying because it allows you to mix your vegetables and noodles easily without spillage.
NOW TO THE COOKING
STEP 1: Chop your vegetables into your preferred size.
While at it, you set a pot of water on fire and bring to boil. When it boils, put in the noodles and half of the seasoning (e.g, if cooking two noodles, parboil with one seasoning). Allow to cook till it is half done. Be careful not to overcook the noodles, better undercooked than overcooked. Once it is half-done, sieve and set aside.
STEP 2: Put a dry wok on fire, set the heat to medium-low and add very little oil. Little oil because it is stir frying, not deep frying. When the oil has heated up, pour in the onions and vegetables, give them a light fry. Then you add the sausages and the remaining seasoning. Mox them properly.
STEP 3: Pour in the noodles at this point and little quantity of the sauces. Stir properly and check for taste, you can add more sauces if you want. Add the parsley, give a final stir and serve.
