Stir-fried Egg Noodles With Bacon & Prawn Gyozas

As the name suggests, the bacon gives the lovely flavour to the dish. Fresh ginger, garlic and spring onions makes the dish very fragrant. I have used prawn gyozas from AJINOMOTO. These gyozas take the dish to another level. They’re great as a weekday dinner put together under 30 minutes. Feel free to use any kind of dumpling in this recipe, or skip it altogether.

Tips

Step 1:

Cook the egg noodles in hot water for 6-7 minutes. Once cooked, drain and rinse with cold water. Keep them aside.

Step 2:

Cut the bacon rashers into 1 inch pieces.

Step 3:

In a large frying pan, add the bacon pieces and the oil (1 tbsp). Cook them on a medium-high flame for 4-5 minutes until they start to brown on the edges and are crisp. Transfer them to a plate.

Step 4:

In the same frying pan, place the prawn gyozas. Pan fry them for 2 minutes, then add 50 ml of water, cover and cook for 4 minutes until all the water has evaporated. Take off the lid and cook further for another minute. Keep the pan aside.

Step 5:

In a large wok, add oil (1 tbsp), chilli oil(1 tbsp), chopped spring onion whites and greens, grated ginger, and garlic. Mix and cook everything for 2 minutes on a high flame.

Step 6:

Now add the cooked noodles, soy sauce (dark and light)and rice wine vinegar. Mix well.

Step 7:

Add the bacon pieces and gyozas. Finally add the sesame oil. Mix and let everything absorb the flavours of the bacon, and the sesame oil.
