Egg noodles in soup

Egg noodles in soup

Homemade egg noodles are still the best……no preservatives, clean, cheap and higher in quality. It is simple and easy to make at home, even if you don’t have a pasta machine. Check it out at How To Make Egg Noodles At Home.

Homemade egg noodles are very delicious cooked in anyway, either in soup, fried dry or fried with sauce. Here I have 2 noodle dishes that you can try, one is noodle soup and one is fried noodles. And with my Super Fast Chinese Roasted Chicken or my recent Spicy Aromatic Baked Chicken, these 2 noodle dishes here are just very easy and quick to cook.  Both are made from homemade egg noodles, topped with sliced Spicy Aromatic Baked Chicken.

Fried egg noodles

Fried egg noodles

Cooking noodles in soup is very simple and easy. All you need is a very tasty soup seasoned according to your taste. I always boil the chicken bones to make the stock. Put some noodles in a bowl. Add some blanched green vegetables, some fried garlic or shallot oil, top it with sliced chicken and lastly add hot soup. It makes a very quick, nutritious meal. Even picky eaters like my daughter will gobble down this dish happily. At least she doesn’t pick out the vegetables! If she does, she knows I won’t cook it again……smart mom…haha. She would eat all the vegetables first and then enjoy the rest!

Frying noodles is a little more tricky. The noodles won’t be as delicious if the fire is not hot enough. It’s quite sad that we don’t get strong fire for cooking here.  So I have to adjust my way of cooking. I always cook the ingredients separately when frying noodles and then mix all together. I find that works well. The noodles come out nicer.

Here’s my Fried Egg Noodles recipe. You can vary the amount of ingredients and seasoning according to your preference. You can even add a little wine, sesame oil or pepper powder if you like. You can even add chopped chilies to make it spicy. The list is really endless.

Ingredients A
fresh egg noodles
eggs (lightly beaten)
green leafy vegetables
fried garlic oil

Ingredients B (seasoning)
light soya sauce
oyster sauce
chili sauce
sugar (a little)

Make and break omelette into pieces

Make and mash the omelette

Heat up some oil in the frying pan or wok. Pour in the beaten eggs. Mash up the omelette before it hardens. Dish up. Fry the vegetables separately too and dish up also.

Fry everything together

Fry everything together

Lastly fry the noodles until fragrant. You’ll hear some soft hissing sound as you fry. Add the seasoning and continue to fry. Adjust the seasoning according to your taste. Add the vegetables and the omelette. Mix well and dish up. Top with the sliced spicy aromatic baked chicken and serve hot. It is very delicious and makes a quick light meal.

i’m the first one to comment on this post….yeah….so nice to have homemade noodle…wondering when i have a chance to taste that

TasteHongKong  on August 25th, 2010

So many nice homemade items … noodles, baked chicken and even stock. I thought you would use the thick soy sauce, Malay-styled : ).

somewhere in singapore  on August 25th, 2010

I’m hungry already…

sushma mallya  on August 25th, 2010

looks mouthwatering, home made noodles were so perfectly done…

Cooking Gallery  on August 25th, 2010

I love my noodles and these ones look fantastic! I love noodles because they are so versatile!

kristy  on August 25th, 2010 Yumm… Great job, Mary! Here’s the pay off day. The noodles look very delicious. Btw, did find your other baking gadget already? Looking forward for more to come. hehe…. Have a wonderful day.
Cheers, kristy

3hungrytummies  on August 25th, 2010

I knew you would come up with something delicious like this with your homemade noodles.

Mary  on August 25th, 2010

@Sidney - Yeah….you are first to comment! You are fast this time :D If you come to Aberdeen, you can surely taste it. Maybe you should swing by when you go for your Europe tour. You’ll definitely get more than just the noodles :D

@TasteHongKong - Haha….I love homemade food….more work but worth all the effort :D I cant really get the good thick soya sauce sauce. A better alternative is to use a good light soya sauce. I usually use Kikkoman soya sauce. It has a very lovely taste.

@somewhere in singapore - Looks like you have to eat first before visiting my blog…haha :D

@sushma mallya - Thanks very much, Sushma! :D

@Cooking Gallery - Thanks very much! Totally agree with you that noodles are so versatile :D

@kristy - Haha….you are making me feel guilty for all my kitchen gadgets that I have not used! :D Promise I’ll dig them out one by one and use them, at least once…..proof on my blog posts to come. You are such a darling, Kristy! :D Hope you have a wonderful day, too.

@3hungrytummies - Oh wow….you can read my brain…haha! :D Now I wonder what else you know…LOL

claire  on August 25th, 2010

last nite i went to eat ramen, i like their texture and the “fine-ness” but what spoil it was the soup.. sigh.. i dont like the soup smell..
if u ask me, i like egg noodles with soup.. :)

Nasi Lemak Lover  on August 25th, 2010

look so yummy !

Mary  on August 25th, 2010

@claire - Oh no…so sorry to hear that. For any noodle soup, the soup is the most important apart from the noodles. If the noodles has good texture and the soup is nice, I can happily eat that without any other ingredients in it. Looks like it is better for you to make at home :D

@Nasi Lemak Lover Thanks very much, Sonia! :D

srividhya Ravikumar  on August 25th, 2010

looks lovely and delicious…drooling..

anncoo  on August 25th, 2010

Jun  on August 25th, 2010

Sidney  on August 25th, 2010

I wish to visit you but my calendar is packed as I just bought a new condo & will be shifting in next year April / May…I’ll try to arrange a tour to Europe in near future and must try your cook…

Belinda @zomppa  on August 25th, 2010

My gosh, I couldn’t agree with you more. Any way is good!

peteformation  on August 25th, 2010

so delicious! I love the fried version, eat with cut up chilli with soya sauce or sambal…mmm yummy!

Cheah  on August 25th, 2010

Both dishes look so delicious! I told my hubby that you can make noodles and have them cut so uniformly. He’s hinting that I should try to make some too!

Roti n Rice  on August 25th, 2010

Mary, it’s about lunch time here and you are making me very, very hungry with your noodles. I think I need both the soup and fried noodles.

Yummy Team  on August 25th, 2010

Am drooling over your yummy noodles..Great pictures, Mary..

5 Star Foodie  on August 25th, 2010

Two terrific ways to use your homemade noodles! Excellent!

Kamalika  on August 25th, 2010

Mouthwatering dish dear…have to try the homemade noodlies….

lequan@luvtoeat  on August 25th, 2010

Hey Mary! Both dishes look awesome! I wouldn’t dare pick out anything out of my bowl at your house, mostly because everything you make has my mouth going crazy to want to eat it. I definitely prefer soup more. Very comforting in this cold Edmonton weather that we can get.

Mary  on August 25th, 2010

@Priya - Give a try making your own noodles and let me drool over yours :D

@Jeannie - Oh….now you make me drool thinking of the sambal…haha :D Must make next time to go with it.

@Cheah - Oh dear….Cheah, looks like I give you work now…haha :D I’m sure your hubby loves to eat noodles.

@Roti n Rice - Haha……too late to make for lunch, Biren :D but you can make for dinner. But boys at home, you have to make more :P

@Yummy Team - Thanks very much! Give try. I’m sure you will be happy with your effort.

@5 Star Foodie - Thanks very much, Natasha! :D

@Kamalika - Thanks very much, Kamalika! Give a try. I’m sure you will like it….worth all the effort :D

@lequan@luvtoeat - You better don’t, LeQuan, otherwise no more noodles for you….haha :D I need more soup here, too….so cold.

Xiaolu  on August 25th, 2010

Fantastic noodles. Especially the fried ones are mouthwatering. I have never tried making noodles at home, but I imagine it’s a lovely process with delicious results.

what a comforting and delicous soup!

Ananda Rajashekar  on August 25th, 2010

Mary, myself and my sister used to love Chines fried noodle we used get amazed the way it gets fried…oh yum…thanks for your version, its bad that we don’t get the real fire so will follow ur recipe soonish that looks awesome :)

mycookinghut  on August 25th, 2010

Looks really good! If you ask me to choose, I love both but I think I would go for noodle in a soup… I like to eat and drink the soup dry!! hehehe

Mary  on August 25th, 2010

@Xiaolu - Thanks very much, XiaoLu! Give a try at make egg noodles yourself. I’m sure you will like what you make and not store bought ones….just so different :D

@Katerina - Thanks very much, Katerina! :D

@teresa - Thanks very much, Teresa! :D

@Ananda Rajashekar - That’s why I really love hawker fried noodles because they use high heat to fry the noodles. The taste is very different. You actually see flames of fire jumping around the wok. I need that type of high heat for cooking to make my dishes even more delicious :D Well, have to be thankful with what I have now and adjusting here and there.

@mycookinghut - In this cold weather I would love the soup, too. Oh, I will serve you a big bowl of soup if you are here :D

pigpigscorner  on August 25th, 2010

I must try making egg noodles one day!

Joy  on August 25th, 2010

Great dish, I have been meaning to make homemade noodles.

pegasuslegend  on August 25th, 2010

Two terrific ways to use your homemade noodles! What a fabulous job! I would eat a huge plate of these for sure! Love the chicken too!

Patty Price  on August 25th, 2010

Fantastic recipe, my husband would love this for dinner, I will have to try making the noodles and the soup looks perfect! Now I’m going over to check out your smoothie, we’re having hot weather today so I might make a smoothie for dinner!

Faith  on August 25th, 2010

I love how versatile the egg noodles are! Both dishes look incredible, Mary!

Mary  on August 25th, 2010

@pigpigscorner - Lovely to know that. You’ll have fun making and eating :D

@Joy - Thanks very much! Have fun making :D

@pegasuslegend - Thanks very much, Claudia! I’ll cook a huge plate if you are here…lots of chicken, too :D

@Patty Price - I think noodles are the perfect way to our hubbies’ heart :D Hope you try out soon. Have fun making your own noodles. I had smoothies for dinner yesterday but had a proper dinner today.

@Faith - Thanks very much, Faith!

tigerfish  on August 25th, 2010

I fry my noodles this way too - fry the ingredients first (sometimes at different stages), then adding the noodles last. How I wish I have freshly made homemade noodles…

Evan @swEEts  on August 25th, 2010

Mary.. I can’t get over how good this looks.. its making me re-think my choice of fish for dinner.. is it easy to make noodles? I’m kind of scared?!

Ivy @ My Simple Food  on August 25th, 2010

Love that you make your own noodles. I really must try it! You make it look so easy.

Mary  on August 25th, 2010

@tigerfish - Would be lovely to try making your own noodles. It may look difficult but actually it’s easy to make. I find it’s fun :D It’s worth all the worth when you eat the noodles.

@Evan @swEEts - Fish is great for dinner. I must cook again soon. Making noodles is not that difficult. If you follow my recipe and breaks up the stages of kneading, then it becomes easy I think. It’s quite a small amount so it’s easy to handle. Give a try. It will become easier. I actually enjoy making noodles. I think it’s fun :D Just let me know if you need further help.

@Ivy @ My Simple Food - Thanks very much, Ivy. Give a try. Have fun making your own noodles :D

suituapui  on August 25th, 2010

Both look yummy…but I think I would prefer the fried one. Heheheheheh!!! Drool! Drool!

Shirley@kokken69  on August 25th, 2010

I have been meaning to make hand made noodle for a long while…..thanks for sharing this and bringing the motivation back!

Yummy, I feel so hungry especially is my breakfast time. I will cook the instant noodle instead and look at your home made noodle and immagine I am eating them, so lucky your family can have this lovely dish.

Mary  on August 26th, 2010
