My noodles obsession has also inspired other people such as John the papercut artist and Matt the radio man. So I thought I'd share with you my simple, fail-safe recipe.
A round of dried noodles, about 75 grams,
softened in a cup of boiling water for 5 minutes
1 onion, sliced
1 tbsp vegetable oil
1 tbsp soy sauce
1 tbsp malt vinegar
Heat the oil in a frying pan or a wok and fry the onions for 10 minutes on medium heat until slightly browned and caramelised. Add the soften noodles and the rest of the ingredients, fry for another 5 minutes. As I like mine rather crispy, let it cook on high heat until you get some of the noodles crisp.
I usually add in any vegetables I might have in the fridge; pieces of broccoli, carrots or spinach. Add this with the onions half way through its caramelising.
And almost always I like my noodles with a fried egg, which I add when the noodles are crisping. You may need to add more oil to the pan to help the noodles crisp and the egg frying.
