Dry noodles with soya sauce..

one of my old time favourite is dry noodles with soya sauce. i had it almost every week way back in malaysia and they were of course very cheap. after coming over to melb, i always have the cravings of it. my sis and i wanted to try making ourselves. surprisingly, it tasted pretty good. so here you go, all you need is egg noodles, the sauce, spring onion, bok choy, and some roast meat. or perhaps some won ton as well.

well the hard part about making dry noodles is about cooking the noodles. you can't overcooked it or else it won't be that yummy. only dip in the egg noodles into hot boiling water for a few seconds and then rinse it with cold water. then the noodles will keep the chewy texture. we also cooked some chicken soup with fish balls to have it with the dry noodles.

the next thing is the sauce. the ingredients are as follow:
10 tbsp dark soya sauce
5 tbsp light soya sauce
2 tbsp oyster sauce
1 tbsp of sugar
2 tbsp of sesame oil
3 tbsp cooking oil (i used olive oil instead)
1 tbsp mirin sauce (a type of japanese vinegarish seasoning sauce, or instead you can use xiao xing wine)
thinly chopped garlic and some shallots

yes you should and it's quite easy to make. but do remember not to overcook the noodles. try to separate into a few times to boil it and only for a few seconds. definately can satisfy your cravings. ^^
