Black Sauce Noodles with Fried Garlic

Noodles can NOT be made any simpler and any more delicious. This idiot proof recipe for black sauce noodles with fried garlic and spring onions is my go-to recipe for a quick lunch on busy days when there are a butt-load of chores to be done and, dirty and hungry children to clean and feed, or on lazy days when all I want to do is anything that does not result in me slaving over the stove with sweat dripping down my forehead. It is unbelievably quick (all you need is 10 minutes or less!), made with only 3 main ingredients, mad simple and insanely yummy.

I love noodles - I can eat noodles everyday and done in every way possible. For myself, the key to what makes a bowl of noodles extra delicious is how the noodles are cooked, and it is when the noodles are cooked to a perfect al dente - a little springy and just slightly hard in the middle - now that is when, BAM!, this is a good day because I have a perfect bowl of noodles to devour.

When cooking your noodle of choice for this black sauce noodles, take note to watch your noodles as they are cooking, even the mere 10 seconds of over-cooking will ruin the whole dish. What I do is I let it cook for at least a minute and a half in boiling water, then I will taste a bit of the noodles every 15 seconds after that and when it is perfect, I turn off the heat and remove the noodles from the pot and into a strainer immediately.

This really is a wonderful dish for busy days and it also is a great addition to any bento lunch box as it tastes great even when cold. I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as my family does!

Black Sauce Noodles with Fried Garlic

Prep time: 3 mins

Cook time: 5 mins

Total time: 8 mins

Serves: 2


· 200g Egg Noodles

· 3 cloves Garlic

· 2 sprigs Spring Onions

For the sauce:

· 3 tablespoons Soy Sauce

· 1 tablespoon Dark Soy Sauce

- 1 tablespoon Sugar


1. First, set a large pot of water to boil and add the noodles in to cook

according to package instructions. If you are using Cantonese noodles or

Wanton noodles, cooking time should be between 30-40 seconds.

2. While the noodles are cooking, finely chop up the garlic and roughly ch o

up the spring onions, and set aside.

3. Take note to taste your noodles at this point to ensure that they do not

overcook while you are preparing the fried garlic.

4. To make the fried garlic, heat up a small skillet with 2 tablespoons of

vegetable oil.

5. When the oil is hot, add the chopped garlic in and spread it out on the oil

allow it to cook evenly, turn the heat to low and let the garlic fry until a light

brown colour, at which time turn the fire off and transfer the fried garlic out

onto a small platter.

Because the oil is really hot, the garlic will continue cooking even when

removed from the skillet and by the time the oil has cooled down, you

should have a platter of beautifully caramelized fried garlic.

6. Check on your noodles again, and when it has cooked ,

pour out into a strainer and run cold water over it.

7. Set the noodles aside and start mixing your sauce - 3 tablespoons soy

sauce, 1 tablespoon dark soy sauce (For colour), 1 tablespoon sugar and the

fried garlic + garlic oil.

8. Toss the noodles in the sauce and top it off with the chopped spring

onions and some sliced red chillies if you prefer to have some heat to pair

with the noodles. Enjoy!


If you like your noodles to be extra spicy, chop up a couple of birds' eye

chillies and fry it together with the garlic
