Fried Yellow Noodles

I wished I have the creativity of Japanese mommy in the way they cook. Quite some time back, a friend sent me an email with photographs of bento. My God! They looked delicious! Since I got a fussy eater at home, I tell myself I must try to make something like those. At least half as good lah. I started with Bear Rice with Furikake and Steam Vegetables and Chrysanthemum Squid. This is my 3rd attempt in making my kid's meal interesting.

  • Yellow flat noodle
  • Cai xin, chopped finely
  • Prawns, shelled and deveined
  • Fish cake, sliced
  • Carrots, sliced
  • Chicken broth (I always use home-made ones)
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon oil
  • Salt to taste
How to do it:
  1. Heat wok with oil.
  2. Sauté garlic till fragrant.
  3. Add in prawns and cook till 70% cooked
  4. Add in fish cake, carrots and cai xin.
  5. Cook till prawns and fish cake are done.
  6. Dish and set aside.
  7. In the same wok, add in the noodle and broth.
  8. Simmer till the noodle is cooked and there isn’t much fluid left.
  9. Now add in the previously cooked ingredients and mix well.
  10. Add in salt to taste. (I don’t find it necessary as the noodle is slightly salty)
  11. Dish and serve.
Note:Add more broth to the noodle if you find it too dry. You can substitute the ingredients used with your preferred ones.


  1. Wokkingmum, dun tell me the dish in the pic is prepared by you! OMG the apple mushroom is so cute!!! :p

  2. Thanks! All the pix you see here are dishes I wok leh. ;p

  3. WOW!:) Can you teach me how to do that muchroom apple? I have problems getting Trenyce to eat fruits nowadays...duno what happened. Not sure is it becos my fruit doesnt look appetitising?

  4. So pretty! Is that "mushroom" entirely apple ? So cute!
    How abt the "jelly"? Are they jelly or something else? Wow...really very pretty!

  5. Mdm 2359, the trick is to use cookie cutter! hehehe. If you dont have, it will be a bit tricky to do mushroom. Maybe you can try star shape since it can be done with knife. Just wash the apple, slice abt 1/3 of the apple (missing the core), push the cookie cutter thru it. For the mushroom, I just use a peel to remove the skin for the 'stem'.
    Btw, my Trenyce hates fruits/fruit juice :(

    Tigerfish, yes, the mushroom is just apple. Jelly is jelly I bought from supermaket. Thanks! :)

  6. I'm so impressed by your wokking skills. I'm so embarrassed after looking at your pics cos I've never put in efforts to make my boy's meals so good looking. There's so much to learn here!

  7. Thanks! I'm still learning too. There's no end to wokking! I started with zero knowledge in wokking too! Once my pot caught fire! LOL

    Hope you will find something interest here! ;)

  8. ok, thanks wokkingmum! will go shopping for more utensils..hehehe ;)
