How to cook… Fried Mi-sua Noodles

This is one of the popular dishes cooked during the Vegetarian Festival. It is easy to cook and has a good taste. But, try not to eat too many fried dishes or you will put on weight! There are two kinds of noodles you can use. They are often yellow and are either thin or thick. The one today is a white thin version which is called mi-sua. In the ingredients picture below, you can see Chinese Flowering cabbage (choy sum) and mi-sua noodles. Below is sugar, mushrooms and chopped carrots. We only have one kind of mushroom here but you can use several different kinds. Or three for good luck!

You need to cook the noodles first. The instructions on our packet said boil for four minutes and then rinse with cold water. If you are not taking part in the vegetarian festival, you can first fry some garlic in oil until it turns fragrant. Then add the mushrooms, choy sum and light soy sauce. You can use cabbage instead if you like. Finally add the noodles and give a good stir. Sugar is optional. This is one of those dishes that you can experiment with different ingredients.
