Fried Rice Noodles is always my family favourite. It can be fried in various ways. It is easy and fast as a one-dish meal and is great for days when you are very busy. I think there’s nothing better than a hot, home cooked meal, no matter how simple it is.
Those who have been following my blog will know by now that I love prawns or shrimps. I actually haven’t cooked the box of tiger prawns in my freezer yet when I bought another big packet of ready cooked king prawns yesterday. I was just so excited to use it many dishes.
I had a super busy day yesterday and only had time for a simple meal. It’s quite a while since we last had fried noodles so I thought fried rice noodles would please everyone. The king prawns would be just perfect to go with it. Since I had 2 pieces of char siu chicken thighs in the fridge, that would give extra flavour. I would do a Thai style fried rice noodles. The outcome? We liked it very much. My daughter said it was very delicious. She ate a big plate. This is again another simple, easy and quick meal that’s enough for 3-4 persons.
1/2 packet of rice noodles
Put some water into a pot to boil. When it boils, add the dried rice noodles. Boil until it’s quite soft. Do not over boil. Taste for doneness according to your preference. Pour away the water and run through with cold water to stop it from further cooking and becoming too soft. Leave it aside.
1chili (washed and chopped)
a handful of coriander leaves (washed and cut)
char siu chicken
cooked king prawns
bok choy (washed and sliced)
fried garlic oil
The coriander and chili gives beautiful flavour and taste to the fried noodles. The char siu chicken is also very delicious and adds to the taste. To make the fastest char siu chicken, click here.
