Stir-fried Glass Noodles
Originally uploaded by Food Trails.
ER picked up a bundle of glass noodles when we shopped at the supermarket yesterday. The 1st thing he thought of was stir-fried glass noodles. Yes, I have wanted to do this long ago but have been postponing it for so long. Today, finally I realized that stir-frying glass noodles is not that complicated. Just like ER put it, “Cook it like you would do with fried kway tiao/flat rice noodles and use chicken broth instead of water.” Yeah! It was pretty easy!
The 1st plate of fried glass noodles appeared slightly light in colour, so for this subsequent one on 2nd attempt, I had added a little more dark soy sauce. In the midst of cooking this dish, YH remarked, "Hao xiang o!" Those words were very encouraging especially when I was trying out a new dish :)
Guess what I told YH on his birthday? “This plate of stir-fried glass noodles will be longevity noodles for you!” With a hint of innocence and smiling, he asked, “Really, longevity noodles look like this meh?” Of course not but I continued, “There are noodles and eggs and it fits to be.” :) In the end, he agreed to it. Anyway, he had asked for herbal drink again and wanted to have it tonight when he returns from work.
I showed this photo to Rika when she was home after work, she remarked in a mixture of Mandarin and English, “Man hawker style de…” “This is hawker style? No, no, this is home cooked and better!” I replied.
