Thai Inspired- Tom Yum Instant Noodles

Often, I have a bottle of Tom Yum paste in my fridge. I like them in stir fries or even for fried rice or fried noodles. Needing a quick dinner, I recall I have 1 tablespoon of paste left and used it as a soup base for my usually plain instant noodles.  Coincidentally, my previous Thai Inspired (also!) Noodles   is similar. Ah, my love for spicy food and noodles. 

Most recently, my grandma was preparing to come to Aus for a while. As part of her preparation, she bought some dried herbs (for boiling soup), some clothes pegs (apparently, they are better from SG ;P) and 3 huge bottles of Tom Yum paste!

I think there will be more Tom Yum creations! =)

Thai Inspired Tom Yum Instant Noodles (2 serves)
2 cakes of noodles
1 tablespoon of tom yum paste 
1 stalk of lemon grass sliced (if I only I had some in my fridge when I made this)
2 fish cakes sliced
6 crab sticks
a small bowl of bean sprouts 
1 ltre of stock
2 eggs
green chili sliced

Saute tom yum paste with lemon grass. Add stock and boil. Add noodles. Add in fish cakes and bean sprouts. Simmer for 5 mins. Switch off heat, add eggs. Serve with green chili.

Presto Pasta Nights is back on. This week Claire from Chez Cayenne is hosting. Thanks to Ruth from Once Upon a Kitchen for starting this event.
