    Here's the best I could do on short notice:

    Blanch 1 lb. fresh noodles in boiling water to wash away the starch and to loosen them up (about 2 minutes). Drain them well. Scatter the noodles in a baking pan. Use a pair of chopsticks and your hands to untangle them as much as possible. Put a layer of the noodles 1-inch deep in each of 2 large, heavy skillets. Pour 2 tablespoons of oil and 1/3 cup chicken broth in each. Cook over a low flame until the broth boils away and the bottom becomes brown and crisp. From time to time, add a little oil and broth to keep the noodles moist and allow the crust to develop slowly. This should take about 10-to-12 minutes. To flip, first shake the pan to make sure the cake is not stuck to the bottom (if it is, dribble some oil around the edge to loosen it). Cover the pan with a wide lid. Flip the skillet over, holding the lid firmly. The cake will drop onto the lid. Slide the cake back into the pan to brown it on the other side. Add more oil around the edge if it seems to be sticking. To serve, slide it out onto a plate and use it as a base for any dish with sauce.

    Recipe By :
    Serving Size : 4 Preparation Time :0:00
    Categories : Pasta Asian

    Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
    -------- ------------ --------------------------------
    1/2 lb Rice noodles or rice sticks
    -or rice vermecelli
    1/4 lb Leeks
    1/4 lb Carrots
    1/4 lb Red peppers
    1 oz Fresh chilies
    4 Scallions
    2 tb Peanut oil
    2 ts Salt
    2 Eggs -- beaten
    2 ts Sesame oil
    1/2 ts Salt
    2 tb Curry paste
    1 tb Finely chopped garlic
    1 tb Finely chopped fresh ginger
    1 1/3 c Stock (chicken or vegetable)
    1 tb Sugar
    2 tb Rice wine or dry sherry
    2 tb Light soy sauce
    Fresh coriander leaves

    Soak the rice noodles in a bowl of warm water for 25
    minutes. Drain in a colander or sieve. (If you are
    using dried egg noodles, cook them for 3 to 5 minutes
    in boiling water, drain, and immerse them in cold
    water until required.) Wash and finely shred the white
    part of the leeks. Finely shred the carrots, peppers,
    scallions and chili. In a small bowl, combine the
    eggs with the sesame oil and salt. Heat a wok or large
    pan over a high heat and add the oil. When almost
    smoking, add the carrots, leeks, scallions and salt
    and stir-fry for a few seconds. Add the peppers and
    stir-fry for about 1 minute. Put in the curry sauce
    ingredients and the drained noodles. Stir-fry the
    mixture for about 5 minutes until well mixed and
    heated through. Then add the egg mixture blending
    thoroughly. Stir-fry for 1 further minute. Serve at
    once, garnished with fresh coriander.

    There, nothing a little internet search couldn't find.

    Thanks for making me feel like a genius.:D

    I know I probably shouldn't ask ...but this intrigued me. So what happened - what could go wrong with this?

    I mean - noodles - pan? Did they fall out, did they burn to a crisp - did he try to use carrots?

    I think there might be enough material in this for a comedy series? ;)

    Great idea. We could call it "Guys Can't Cook"

    Men would think it's a cooking show, women would think it's a sitcom.

    Should we work on a pilot?

    Wow, this could be the next "Iron Chef." :D
  15. right! who stole my line i wonder.... :p

    Those two posts alone make this thread somewhat even more funny.


  16. We can shorten this down to just "it's also what a teenager does", we don't need to feel anything specific at the time, so long as we have some energy...

    Tsal's Original Student Style Noodle Soup:

    1 pack of instant noodles
    1 smallish bag of instant cheese soup (w/ broccoli)
    1/2 tablespoon of crushed garlic(fresh or from a jar)
    1-2 tablespoons of tomato paste(ketchup or crushed tomato will do also)

    Pour a pint of water into kettle and fire up the stove. While the water is warming up, mix in the flavouring from instant noodles, the tomato paste and the garlic. Break the dry noodles into smaller pieces. When water starts to boil, throw in the noodles. Mix and let boil for 1-2mins. Throw in the instant cheese soup. Boil and stir for 1-2mins.

    Pour on a deep plate and grab a beer from the fridge. Done!
