Fried Macaroni

The weather is quite upsetting these days. Cloudy days, rain with thunderstorm is no fun at all... I hope the weather gets better soon.. Anyway, it's been a while since I cooked fried macaroni. A friend on mine who is located in Korea shared this recipe with me. The caramel sauce or sweet sauce will add texture to the food but you can use sugar in replacement. Be sure to turn on your kitchen range hood/ventilation fan, open up your windows and put those candles or scented oil to work because while frying the paste, your place is gonna smell for a while.. hehe.. Although the smell is strong, but trust me the fried macaroni will turn out great!! :))


Ingredients:
500g macaroni - boiled until al-dente, drained
250g chicken meat - cut in small cubes
mixed vegetables (your choice of vegetables)
slices of mushrooms
oil to fry

To grind until become a paste:
4 cloves garlic
1 onion
3-4 tbsp blended dried chilli (I used 2 tsp of chilli powder)
2 tbsp dried shrimps, soaked with water until soft, drained

Seasonings:
1 tbsp light soy sauce
1 tbsp heavy salt-soy sauce
2-3 tbsp sweet sauce or caramel sauce
1-2 tbsp sweet soy sauce
ground white pepper
1 tsp sesame seed oil
salt to taste

Garnish:
slices of omelette
fried shallots
chopped green onions
chopped cilantro

Method:
Heat some oil in the wok. Fry the grinded paste until totally cooked. Add chicken meat, vegetables and mushrooms. Cook until the chicken is cooked and vegetables is soften. Then add the seasonings. Stir for about 1-2 minutes then add the macaroni. Add salt to taste (if required). Stir well and remove from heat. Serve hot with slices omelette, chopped green onions and chopped cilantro for garnishing.

Thank you Mrs. D.B. for the recipe. :))
