My first food post

This is a tried & tested recipe dreamed up by yours truly.

You will need

  1. 1 packet rice noodles
  2. yellow onion chopped - 1 cup
  3. garlic - 4 cloves
  4. chicken broth - 1 cup
  5. white wine - 1 tbsp (optional)
  6. chopped mushrooms - 1 cup
  7. Prawns, thoroughly cleaned & deveined - 10
  8. chopped chicken - 1 cup
  9. scrambled egg - 2
  10. Soy sauce - 1 tbsp
  11. Pepper powder - 1 tsp
  12. Tumeric powder - 1/2 tsp
  13. Coriander powder - 1 tsp
  14. Salt - to taste
  15. chopped spring onions - 1/2 cup
  16. Olive oil - 3 tbsp
  • Cook the noodles in boiling water. Make sure that it does not overcook. My recommendation is to cook it to about 80%. Drain the water. Pour 1 tsp olive oil into the noodles & mix well. This is so that the noodles don’t stick together.
  • Cook the chopped chicken in a saucepan adding the turmeric, coriander & pepper powders. After it is cooked well, keep aside.
  • Pour the olive oil into a saucepan. Sauté the chopped onions and garlic for 5 mins.
  • Add the chopped spring onions and sauté for 1 mins.
  • Now add the mushrooms & cook it thoroughly (about 15mins). Now add the chicken broth & reduce for 5 mins. Then add the prawns. Cook for about 3 mins, if you're using white prawns, it will have turned pink in color (be sure NOT to overcook, prawns will taste like rubber if it’s overcooked :-)).
  • Add the cooked chicken & mix well. Pour the white wine & cook for 1 min so that the alcohol can evaporate. (Yeah, we don’t need the alcohol only the flavor)
  • Now mix it with the noodles, add some soysauce & top it with the scrambled eggs. Cook till the noodles are done, & your dish is ready.

    You can add vegetables also; capsicum, carrots, peas, I think they would go well with this dish.
