Whenever my friend Denise invites me round for something to eat I know I’m in for a real treat. She cooks beautifully and truly is the hostess with the mostess! Even when our babies were tiny and the rest of us struggled to even brush our hair, Denise would invite us all round to her house for a yummy home cooked lunch!
Not only is she a terrific cook in general but Denise knows how to cook proper Chinese food! Her family is originally from China which might give her an edge but I suspect she’d be a master at Chinese cookery regardless! I’ve had the most amazing Chinese feast at her house before and it just makes my mouth water thinking about it!
For Chinese New Year she has allowed me to share one of her wonderful recipes which is made using a wok! The picture looks absolutely yummy so if you really want to impress this Chinese New Year then this is the authentic recipe you need! Happy Chinese New Year of the horse everybody!
Singapore Noodles From Denise!
3 eggs, beaten with half teaspoon of curry powder and 2 teaspoons of sesame oil
1 garlic clove, minced
3 spring onions, thinly sliced
Handful of fresh bean sprouts (optional)
3 tablespoons soy sauce
Return the wok to a moderately high heat and add in 1 tablespoon of the oil. Add the pork/chicken and stir fry until just cooked, about 1 minute. Set aside in another plate.
Return the wok to a high heat. When very hot, spoon in 2 tablespoons of the oil and add the ginger, garlic, chilies, and the curry powder. Stir fry until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add the char siu pork/ham, prawns and peppers and stir fry for 30 seconds. Sprinkle on 1 to 2 tablespoons of water and cook until it boils away.
Push the ingredients to the sides of the wok and add the remaining 1 tablespoon of oil. Add the spring onions, bean sprouts, and noodles and toss over high heat until very hot, about 30 seconds.
