Oriental Fried Udon

One day I had a sudden urge to fry Japanese udon. I have never fried udon before, and I have no idea what should I take note of. As a first timer, I just try an error based on my common sense. I prepared lots of ingredients for the udon dish. Hence I reduced the udon portion. Here's my oriental fried udon. It turned out fine. Udon is very easy to handle. Now I discover another good recipe for a busy working day. It will just take you about 30 minutes for the preparation and cooking time. Give it a try if you like udon. You can always add in your favorite ingredients to suit your taste buds.

This dish is submitted to the Presto Pasta Nights #118 which is hosted by Daphne.
