Fried Macaroni Recipe

Fried Macaroni
My mum cooked fried macaroni quite regularly when I was growing up. It was very popular with some of my friends who used to request it before they came over. I haven’t made it before but I thought I should give it a go this weekend. I only got a rough recipe from her so I recorded what I did for others who might be interested to try it. It’s similar to fried rice but instead of rice, you use macaroni. It’s really simple and you can tweak it to your own taste. Richard and his mate, Stephen, gave it two thumbs up!

300g macaroni
1 medium sized brown onion, sliced
2 tsp minced garlic
300g minced beef
200g frozen vegetables, defrosted
1 tsp curry powder
1 tbsp vegetable oil for frying
7 tbsp tomato sauce
3 tbsp dark soy sauce
2 tsp sugar
Salt & Pepper
2 tbsp fried shallots (optional)
1 stalk spring onion to garnish, sliced

1. Cook macaroni as directed. Set aside.
2. Heat oil in a wok over medium heat. Fry onions for a minute and add minced beef. Sprinkle curry powder over mince and fry till mince is browned.
3. Add garlic and fry till fragrant.
4. Add vegetables and fry till cooked.
5. Lower heat and add macaroni. Stir well.
6. In a bowl, mix well tomato sauce, dark soy sauce and sugar. Pour into wok and stir to coat the macaroni.
7. Season well with salt and pepper to taste.
8. Turn off heat and add fried shallots. Stir through. Garnish with spring onion.

Serves 4-6.
