Fried Udon - Malaysian Style

(Untuk Bahasa Melayu, Sila Skrol Ke Bawah)

This is a simple stir fried udon recipe that my mom used to cook for breakfast. I am using seafood here since I am trying not mix chicken with seafood in one dish, though I personally think that chicken fillet strips goes well with this too.

Fried Udon Recipe:

400 gm udon
10 medium size fresh prawns
2 medium sized squids
6 cloves garlic
about 4-5 inch ginger
1 1/2 celery stick - thinly sliced
1/2 carrot - thinly sliced
1 tbsp fish sauce
2 - 3 tbsp light soya sauce
2 tbsp oyster sauce
pinch of black pepper
about 3/4 cup water
vegetable oil to saute

How To Cook Fried Udon:

1. Using a mortar pestle, pound the garlic and ginger (if you are going old school, you can also just use a blender).
2. Heat up some vegetable oil (maybe about 2-3 tbsp) in a pan and saute the garlic and ginger.
3. Add in fish sauce, light soya sauce, oyster sauce, black pepper and salt.
4. Add in the carrots, stir till the carrots are done the way you like it.
5. Stir in the prawns then the squids.
6. Add in the celery just before the udon.
7. Add in the water and the udon, let the udon absorbs the sauce until desired "dryness" of fried udon is achieved. (I prefer it to have a bit of running sauce and not too dry).
8. Serve hot and garnish with chopped chinese celery and spring onion and bird's eyes chilies.
