Summer Recipes

There are many ways to cook fried noodles.
The ingredients are always flexible.
You can change part of them,
or all of them to your own choice.

When you preferred with gravy,
then you make a gravy.
When you preferred adding extra gravy,
it is also possible. Nothing is fixed.

"One Man's Meat is Another Man's Poisson!"
Therefore, it must always suit your taste.

Gravy choices?

a. After the noodles is boiled,
you may keep the water for gravy.

b. When you par-boil the vegetables,
you may keep the water for gravy.
It will add extra taste to the noodles.

c. Therefore 50ml of a plus 150ml of b equals,
to gravy base.

Gravy can be made in many ways. Examples:
a. Stir in peanut sauce paste well,
let it thicken. This is instant gravy.

b. Combine vegetable water and noodle water,
and simmer on low fire to thicken.
Last stir in a few drops of vinegar,
and soy sauce to taste.

c. When using plain water, then you have,
to mix 1 teaspoon cornstarch well,
with a little cold water, and add this,
to the vegetable water.
Let it boil until it thicken.

d. When using total plain water,
you have to mix 1 teaspoon cornstarch well,
with a little cold water,
and add to 200ml plain water,
with Salt, sugar, sesame oil, or soy sauce to taste.

Note: Salt, sugar, soy sauce, and sesame oil,
are commonly used in Chinese recipes.

Nowadays, I use vinegar instead of salt,
to enhance the salt taste. Vegetable,
has given the natural sugar taste.
