  • 1 lb dried thin round noodles about 450 gr

Scallion oil:

  • 1/3 cup cooking oil
  • 10 stalks green onion cut into about 3-4 inch length



  • Fresh cilantro leaves optional


Prepare seasoned scallion oil:

  • Pour cooking oil on a medium pan and heat over medium heat. Add scallion and let them fry over medium heat until they are dark brown, but take care not to burn them. Remove the scallion from the oil with tongs and set aside. You can include the scallion in the noodle or discard, or leave them in the oil. Mine was a tad too brown and so I didn't include them in the noodles
  • Add the seasonings to the oil and cook until sugar melted and the oil bubbles. Remove from the heat

Cook the noodles:

  • Cook the noodles according to instruction on the package. Do not overcook the noodles (or pasta, if using pasta). Drain off the water but do not rinse

Put everything together:

  • Put cooked noodles in one large serving bowl. Add the seasoned scallion oil by few spoonfuls and toss. Have a taste and add few more until the noodle tastes good to you. They are ready to be served
