Method

 
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.

Top noodle wedges with scrambled eggs, remaining spring onions and chilli
   
Serve with a drizzle of sweet soy sauce.

Tip of the day

 
Baobab leaves
African cooks use leaves from the massive baobab tree to thicken their stews. Like okra, the leaves give the dish a congealing texture that's characteristic of West African stews. Okra will give a similar effect if you can't find baobab leaves.
