What was your first cooking experience like?
Mine started off with some simple instant noodles. Actually my favorite was the Ramen Char Mee from Myojo(?). I could devour 2 packets at one sitting!
This was probably one of the first REAL dish that I learned how to cook when growing up- Fried maggi mee (instant noodles) with egg. For some odd reason, it is sooo comforting and certainly still hit a good spot in me when it is fried up.
So it isn’t as oily or delicious as a packet of instant noodles but at least some calories were saved.
Some chicken, fresh veges and quick dinner is made. Best of all, it tastes better the next day.
3-4 blocks of instant noodles blanched or cooked in boiling water.
1 bunch of spring onions sliced
1/2 cup of cauliflower
1/2 cup of carrots
1 chili chopped
1tsp garlic minced
300 grams chicken breast diced
4-5 tablespoons of kikoman soya sauce
1 tablespoon of oyster sauce
2 tsp sesame oil
1-2 tsp of chili powder or curry powder
1-3 tablespoon of shao xien jiu (wine)
pepper! heaps of pepper!
Saute garlic and chili. Brown chicken. Toss vege and noodles in till cooked. Add in seasoning and eggs. Serve with crispy shallots (and sometimes sambal chili!)
