Ingredients:

  • 200g of noodles (such as egg noodles, rice noodles, or udon noodles)
  • 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 small onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup of mixed vegetables (carrots, bell peppers, cabbage, and bean sprouts)

  • 1 tablespoon of sesame oil

Instructions:

  1. Cook the noodles according to the package instructions until they are al dente. Drain and set aside.
  2. Heat the vegetable oil in a large skillet or wok over medium-high heat.
  3. Add the minced garlic and sliced onion to the skillet. Stir-fry for 1-2 minutes until fragrant.
  4. Add the mixed vegetables to the skillet and stir-fry for an additional 2-3 minutes until they are tender-crisp.

Tips:

  • Customize your fried noodles by adding your favorite ingredients such as mushrooms, bamboo shoots, or baby corn.
