Malaysian Style Fried Noodles

Serves 6 to 8 people


  • 1 box of thin spaghetti (16 oz)
  • 5 – 6 pieces of garlic
  • 4 – 5 pieces of green chilies
  • 2 Tablespoons of regular soy sauce
  • 2 Tablespoons of sweet soy sauce
  • ¼ cup of oyster sauce
  • 2 Tablespoons of tomato ketchup

Adjust the following per your personal taste:

½ pound of shrimp, chicken or beef (or a combination)

¼ pound of cabbage

¼ pound of baby carrot

¼ pound of mushroom

¼ pound of bean sprouts

a bundle of green onion

Slice of lime or lemon


  • Boil the spaghetti until tender, drain and put aside
  • Heat about 4 tablespoons of cooking oil in a frying pan

(If you are using shrimp, fry the shrimp for about 3 minutes, and set aside)

  • Crush garlic and green chilies, fry in the hot oil until the garlic turns yellow
  • Add chicken (or beef) and stir until the meat is fully cooked
  • Add each of the sauces one at one time and stir again for another 2 minutes
  • Season to taste, but add only a pinch of salt since the regular soy sauce is already salty
  • Add spaghetti and stir until it blends well with the sauce
  • Add vegetables (cabbage, carrot, etc)
  • If you are using shrimp that was set aside earlier, add it at this time.
  • Keep stirring till the vegetables are cooked – not more than 5 minutes
  • If you feel it is too dry, add a little water but the sauce should not be runny.
  • When serving, squeeze the lime on it, it gives a good aroma.

Good Luck and Good Eating!
