RICE NOODLES

Rice noodles is one of my favorite kind of noodles, which is great for stir-fry as well as noodle soup. There are many different brands for Vermicelli Noodles. You can use either Chinese, Thai, or Vietnamese brand. I use Vietnamese Vermicelli noodles a lot, especially the Bamboo Tree brand.

VEGETABLES

For this recipe, I use Onion, Cabbage (I use Danish cabbage here), Green Onions, and Carrot. If you can find it in your local Asian grocery stores, I recommend that you use the Chinese Cabbage. You can also add other veggies of your choice, such as Bok Choy or Lettuce.

WHAT YOU NEED TO MAKE THE STIR-FRY SAUCE

Light Soy Sauce – This is one of the must-have Asian sauces that you need to have in your kitchen. Lee Kum Kee is my favorite brand for this. You can use other brands too.
Chinese Black Vinegar – or called 镇江香醋. This is made from fermented black sticky rice or regular glutinous rice. It adds a great tanginess and depth of flavors to the dish.
Lao Gan Ma Chili Sauce – This is one of the most popular Chinese chili sauces. Either kind can work in this recipe. You can buy this chili sauce in your local Asian markets or grocery stores.
Sugar – it helps balance the overall flavor here.

OTHER INGREDIENTS

Rice Noodles – This is one of my favorite kind of noodles. There are many options. You can use the Vietnamese rice noodles, Thai Rice Noodles, or Chinese Rice Noodles.
Prawns – Always use large prawns for satisfying bites. The shrimp should be peeled and deveined and are cut in butterfly shape.
Eggs – I use three eggs here. You should gently whisk the eggs before use.
Onion – You can either slice or dice the onion here.
Cabbage – It adds some crunchiness to the texture. It will be best if you can use Chinese cabbage here. If not, just use the local kind that is available to you. I use a Danish cabbage here.
Carrots – You can either slice the carrots into thin strips or julienne the carrots.
Garlic – It adds a wonderful garlicky flavor to the dish.
Vegetable Oil – I normally use Rapeseed Oil. Do not use Olive Oil here.
Green Onions – or called Spring Onions. I like to use this for garnishing at the end. It adds beautiful green color and it is rich in healthy nutrients.

Haini’s Tips

1. Remember not to overcook the Rice Noodles in the boiling water at the beginning. Cook the noodles til al dente with still a bit firm texture, as the Rice Noodles will be cooked again in Stir-fry.
2. You can use scissors to cut the Rice Noodles into shorter strips for an easy stir-fry.
3. You are welcome to add some Black Pepper at the end for extra peppery flavor.
4. If you prefer everything vegetarian, you can substitute prawns with tofu.
