Stir Fried Instant Egg Noodles


This is what I cooked for lunch the last weekend.  I used the basic seasoning from Kimmy, Cooking Pleasure.  The noodle is so flavourful and delicious.  As I only have baby spinach available in the fridge so I decided to add an egg for everyone. 


2-3 bundle of instant flat noodles (I used 5 pkt of instant egg noodle)
2 stalks chai sim - clean and cut (replaced with baby spinach)
a handful of beansprouts – washed (I skipped as not available)
2 tbsp oil and 1 tsp sesame oil
150ml of water

Seasoning Sauce [mix together]
2 tbsp vegetarian oyster sauce (I used normal oyster sauce)
2 tbsp light soy sauce
1/2 tbsp dark soy sauce - for colour
1/4 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp vegetarian msg (I skipped)


(1)Blanched noodles in boiling water till al dente.  Drain dry and mix in some oil to prevent noodles from sticking.  Set aside.

(2)Heat oil in wok.  Add in vegetables and beansprouts (For me, I added in baby spinach) to fry for a second then add in blanched noodles.  Use a wok ladle and a pair of chopsticks to combine ingredients well.  Add in seasoning, stir fry to mix well.  Then add in water.  Stir and cover to cook noodles for a minute or until the water has almost dried up.

(3)Stir and dish on to serve with prepared chilli sauce or pickled green chillies. (I skipped this)


  1. Hi Amy,
    Simple and delicious! And with the egg over the top, makes it extra yummy!

  2. Simple comfort food! My favourite!

  3. You just made something that was originally supposed to be an instant and "can't-be-bothered-with" type of meal into something that is so enticing and flavorful! I am no cook myself (*shy*), but I have to say you're making this sounds so easy to perfect and make it into such an awesome plate of noodles!
    I have a feeling it must taste much better than some of those offered in those restaurants out there! ;-)

  4. Hi Amy,

    Wish that I can have your saucy noodle for my lunch... slurp slurp!
