Crispy Chinese Noodles


For the Noodles:

  • 200g of Chinese egg noodles
  • 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil
  • Salt to taste

For the Sauce:

  • 1 teaspoon of sugar

Crispy Chinese Noodles


  1. Boil the Noodles: Start by boiling water in a pot. Once the water is boiling, add a pinch of salt and the Chinese egg noodles. Cook according to the instructions on the packet until they are al dente. Be careful not to overcook them as we want them to retain their firmness.
  2. Drain and Rinse: Once the noodles are cooked, drain them using a colander and rinse them under cold water. This stops the cooking process and removes excess starch, preventing them from sticking together.
  3. Spread on a Tray: After rinsing, spread the noodles on a tray lined with paper towels. Pat them dry gently to remove any excess moisture. This step is crucial for achieving crispy noodles later on.


  1. Heat the Oil: In a large frying pan or wok, heat the vegetable oil over medium-high heat until it’s hot but not smoking.
  2. Add the Noodles: Carefully add the dried noodles to the hot oil, spreading them out evenly in the pan. Let them fry without stirring for about 2-3 minutes until the bottom side becomes golden and crispy.
  3. Flip and Crisp: Using tongs or a spatula, carefully flip the noodles over to crisp up the other side. Allow them to fry for another 2-3 minutes until both sides are evenly golden and crispy.

  3. Serve with Sauce: Drizzle the prepared sauce over the crispy noodles just before serving. Garnish with sliced spring onions and sesame seeds if desired.
