Instructions

  1. Add hot boiling water onto the dried Maggi noodles (or just straight up boil the noodles). I prefer the first option as I prefer the noodles being slightly harder rather than too soft. Drain the noodles once they are cooked to your preference.
  2. Dice all the vegetables including the onion and garlic. If you prefer to blend the garlic you may do so. Gather your sauces and spices.
  3. In a bowl, crack the eggs and mix them with a bit of salt.
  4. Heat a wok and add the oil.
  5. Add in your sausages. After they turn into a brownish color remove them from the wok.
  6. Add in your garlic and onion. Stir-fry until the onions are golden brown.
  7. Add in the eggs and scramble them.
  8. After the eggs are cooked, add in the chilies.
  9. Add in your vegetables and mix well.
  10. Add in 1 1/2 tablespoons of oyster sauce, 1 tablespoon of chili sauce, and 1 tablespoon of tomato sauce. Mix well. Then, add the sausages back into the wok.
  11. Once the sauces are well combined add in the Maggi noodles.
  12. Add in both packets of the Maggi powder, 1 1/2 tablespoons of light soy sauce, 2 tablespoons of dark soy sauce, and the remainder of your oyster, chili and tomato sauces. Mix well until your noodles are well coated with the sauces.
  13. Check for taste. You may add more dark soy sauce if the color of the noodles is too light.
  14. Plate up and enjoy!
