Broad Noodles Stir Fry with Tofu

Noodles Recipes are always popular at our home, specially because of the various tastes and flavours. My recent finding is this broad noodle, which is a flat noodle. These flat broad noodles are often used in Chinese noodles recipes, and here in Singapore, it is easily available to buy.

Among the Singapore noodles recipes, I decided to try broad noodles with tofu. Anyway, I had a doubt of the outcome of this noodle dish, but I am wrong. The taste was awesome. With Tofu I also added few prawns to get some seafood flavor for the dish. However, if you are a vegetarian, you can skip prawns and try this stir fried noodles dish.

Broad Noodles Stir Fry with Tofu

Here are few tips to cook broad noodles.

To prepare the dish, you need to cook broad noodles in boiling water for about 3 minutes. Once cooked, drain water and rinse noodles with cold water. This will stop the cooking process of noodles. Also add few drops of cooking oil to the noodles to prevent sticking together.
Once noodles are cooked and ready, you can stir fry with vegetables and other ingredients. I used tofu and prawns as main ingredients for the stir fry, while using other mix vegetables to add more flavor and appearance.
