Soak noodles in boiling water for 1-2 minutes until soft. Drain well.

Heat oil in a large non-stick pan. Toss in noodles and half the spring onions.

Flatten noodles to create a pancake shape. Fry on one side, flip and continue to fry until golden on both sides.

Place noodle ‘pancake’ onto paper towel to remove excess oil. Slice into 5 wedges.

Heat oil and sauté garlic and ginger for 1 minute. Add egg and scramble.
