Crispy Pan Fried Noodles


Another interesting post...this time it is Pan Fried Noodles!!

Crispy Pan Fried Noodles -Tried these at many occasions in restaurants and loved the crunchiness in every bite.
Tried to recreate the same magic at home and did it successfully!

I am a big fan of noodles,love them in any form possible but crispy noodles is something which I can live to eat...the aroma of fried noodles,veggies ,fried chicken, scrambled egg has filled in my house and loved the awesomeness.

Pan frying the noodles is time consuming as this is a bit time consuming. You can deep fry the noodles the noodles if you want instant option too.
Here the heat level required to cook the noodles to release the lovely aroma along with right level of crispiness is achieved only after a certain time of frying the noodles.
Do not fry or toss the noodles at very high heat not at low or medium,somehow what I was trying to get here is crispy noodles and with flavor coming from the heat /spices/sauces .

I tried broiling them initially in oven just to see if I get the same taste and crispiness so that time required to pan fry is reduced but didn't get what I wanted. You can still give a try and see if it works for you.

This recipe is an update of pictures of my earlier recipe.

So,try this and enjoy!!

  2. What you're saying is completely true. I know that everybody must say the same thing, but I just think that you put it in a way that everyone can understand. I'm sure you'll reach so many people with what you've got to say.
