Easiest Thai Meal Ever: Stir-Fried Mama Noodles
Are you in a hurry but craving some Thai food? In Thailand, even instant noodles have flavor that makes your tongue dance with delight. Try out Stir-Fried Thai instant noodles, and you will never go back to boring instant noodles again! If feeding more people, feel free to double or triple the recipe.
Background: I don’t remember the exact time I first tried Mama noodles. It might have been at work when one of my Thai co-workers made some and then offered me a bite—like all good Thais do whenever they have food and friends in front of them. I never say no to trying food, so I took a bite, and smiled. It tasted just like a Thai dish I would get from a Thai street vendor.
- Thai instant noodles/Mama Noodles (1 package)
- Your favorite veggies, such as cabbage, spinach, broccoli, carrots, tomatoes, mushrooms, etc. (1 serving)
- Meat or tofu you have on hand (1 serving)
- Egg (1)
If needed, cook meat in a wok or saucepan. Boil water in a small pot. Add noodles to boiling water.
Cook for 1-2 minutes. Drain water.
Warm cooking oil in your wok if you haven't already cooked the meat in it. Add noodles to wok, along with veggies and seasoning packets that came with the instant noodles.
Stir a few minutes until veggies are cooked.
Make a well in the center of the noodles. Crack an egg and scramble it. Then mix the egg with the noodles.
Also feel free to turn it into a soup. Put the noodles, veggies, seasoning packet, egg and cooked meat or tofu in the boiling water. Stir and enjoy!
