{Quick Meal} Stir Fried Wanton Noodle 快炒三丝云吞面

The weather was crazily hot these days, with the continuous dry season, we are on the alert to conserve our water usage so I have been cooking really simple meal that requires minimal washing. For the weekend, I decided to cook this stir fried wanton noodle that both my kiddos love. Loaded with lots of vegetables (in fact there was more veggies than noodles), I can be assured they are getting the proper nutrition intake instead of ordering take away.

今天用了火腿丝,胡萝卜丝和大包菜丝, 快手的炒了这碟三丝云吞面。配合有咬劲的云吞面,容易好吃又健康。不需洗一大堆锅锅碟碟,就那么一锅煮,一家人也可以吃得开开心心。如果再撒上一些红辣椒丝那就更赏心悦目。

For the big ones..

For the little ones, I sprinkled some roasted anchovies, their favorite..

Preparation Time: 10 min
Cooking Time: 10 min
Serving for: 4 person

Ingredients  (材料):
2 clove garlic, smashed or finely chopped 蒜头两瓣,剁碎
1 medium size carrot, cut into thin strips 胡萝卜一根,切丝
2 sausages, cut into long strips 香肠两条,切长丝
1 1/2 cup cabbages, cut into long strips 大包菜,切丝 (大约一杯分量)
6 (organic) wanton noodles 有机干云吞面六粒
3 eggs, beaten and seasoned with salt & pepper 鸡蛋三粒,打散,加适量盐胡椒粉调味

Seasoning (调味料):
1 table spoon Worcester sauce 一汤匙Worcester酱
2 table spoons soy sauce 两汤匙酱油
1 teaspoon sesame oil 一茶匙麻油
1 teaspoon dark soy sauce (optional) 一茶匙黑酱油
a dash of salt  盐适量
a dash of pepper 胡椒粉适量

The Making (制作过程):

1. Soak the noodles in a pot of hot water for 1 minutes. Drain and soak briefly in cool water to maintain the crunchiness of the noodle.


2. Beat the eggs, seasoned with some salt and pepper, heat up a table spoon of cooking oil and spread the egg liquid into a big circle. Cook for about a minute then roughly chop it up using the spatula. Set aside.


3. Heat up 2 tablespoon of cooking oil, saute the garlic till fragrance and toss in the sausage strips, carrot strips, long beans and lastly the cabbages. Add about 2 table spoons of boiled water (at room temperature), close the lid and let the veggies simmer for about 2 minutes. Season with some salt, pepper and Worcester sauce.


4. Toss the blanched noodle, add the soy sauce, dark soy sauce and sesame oil. Use a chopstick to ensure the sauces evenly spread over the noodles, cook for about 2 minutes and turn off the heat.


Sprinkle the egg omelet over the noodles, mix roughly and your stir fried wanton noodles is ready to serve! Add some chili sauce, some roasted anchovies (ikan bilis), or just eat as-is. Simple home cook meal full of rich goodness of fresh vegetable.



• I used the water for washing vegetables and noodles to water the plant, one good way of avoiding water wastage, especially when water supply is limited. 
• When serving for young toddlers, do remember to cut the noodles into smaller strips using a clean scissors. For older kids, teach them to eat properly either using a pair of chopsticks or swirl it up with a fork just like eating spaghetti.
