Fried Glass Noodles

Well, I must admit sometimes I like to fry a big wok of noodles for the weekend. So, my family can have them the next day and I can really "sleep" in and I mean it! LOL! To be honest, I rarely have leftover food because I simply don't enjoy eating them again, but a few types of fried noodles or even fried rice is still good the next day.

Anyway, if you like dried shrimps then you can soak about 3 Tbsp of it and make sure to drain them well. (If not, those shrimps would pop all over you!) Fry them separately in a moderate heat with 2 Tbsp of Oil and mix into the noodles together with the prawns and bean sprouts. Do try my recipe:)

Fried Glass Noodles


350 g Dried Glass Noodles, soaked and drained
300 g Peeled Prawns, deveined
2 Cloves Garlic, chopped
3 Medium-Sized Leeks, sliced
4 Large Eggs, lightly beaten with a pinch of sea salt and a dash of white pepper
600 - 650 g Bean Sprouts, washed and drained
3 Tbsp Soy Sauce
2 Tbsp Dark Soy Sauce
3 - 4 Tbsp Peanut Oil
Sea salt to taste


In a moderate to high heat, fry the prawns with 2 Tbsp of oil in small batches. Cook until they are pink in color and slightly charred. Set aside.

Using the same oil, lower the heat and cook the garlic until they are golden in color and set aside.

Then, cook the eggs until they are set and mash them lightly with the spatula and set aside.

Turn the heat on high and add the remaining oil. Mix in the leeks and cook briefly for about 5 minutes. Then add in the glass noodles, garlic, eggs light and dark soy sauce. Give it a quick stir.

Then add in the prawns and bean sprouts. Stir quickly and season with sea salt and ground white pepper. To serve, top it with some chop scallions. Serve immediately.


  1. Mmm. These look delicious. I love fried glass noodles -- and this makes such a simple, fulfilling supper.

  2. I adore mee goreng any time of the week!

  3. Hey Lo and Maya, thanks for all the comments:)

  4. Hi Angie....are glass noodles the same as vermicelli?

  5. There are bean vermicelli & rice vermicelli... we call glass noodles "tang hoon" in Hokkien, or also known as cellophane noodles. Awesome stuff, especially with seafood and black pepper sauce!

  6. I've never cooked with this type of noodles. Would happen to have another package laying around that you could take a picture of the package so I can try to find them?

  7. I just made this and it is an excellent recipe!!

I'm actually laughing at myself! What have I got into? Trying to make dumplings?? Well, I have seen my late grandmother make them a long time ago. I can remember the ingredients but not the measurements! So, it took me about two hours to come up with the perfect recipes, and I'm glad I did! It was an instant hit! They were all gone, all gobbled up! Make the dough first, add about 480 to 500g of all-purpose flour with 300ml of water. Knead the dough and let it rest. You should be able to make 40 dumplings with the dough. Meanwhile, prepare the filling for the dumplings. Click here for the dumpling wrappers video.
