Hong Kong Fried Noodles

We learnt to cook this simple Fried Noodle dish at a Hong Kong cooking class. Once you have all the ingredients ready, it is really quick to do.

The tricky technique we learnt in cooking this dish was the wok technique of moving the wok back and forth whilst simultaneously stirring the noodles in a circular fashion. It took quite  few tries to get a hang of this which resulted in a lot of noodles being flung out of the wok and around the cooker.

This is a great basic recipe to add to your repertoire of Chinese cooking. Just by adding some different ingredients and seasoning, you can transform this dish to your own taste. It’s a great way to use up leftover bits of chicken, turkey or other meats.

This dish by itself is a bit plain. I would add extra bits to it to make it a bit more substantial. It is great basic recipe to tweak to make your own. Once all the ingredients are prepped, it is really quick to cook.
