Udon In Spicy Gravy

This fried udon was an impromptu meal that I prepared for last Wednesday's dinner. It is due to an incident happened which spoil my initial plan. Here goes the story...... In that afternoon, I "IM" my dear to boil a pot of chicken soup and keep it simmering in the magic cooker. Who knows he forgot to turn off the fire. So, the whole pot of chicken soup burnt, and our dinner was gone. Argghhh........No, I didn't scold him. I just asked him to clean up the pot. That's it. :) Heheheh......that's hard enough for him, don't you think so?

That's why I called it as impromptu fried udon. Instead of cooking it with black pepper sauce like what I did earlier, I just simply use whatever seasoning to cook the gravy. Luckily it turned out delicious. According to my dear, this one is tastier than the oriental fried udon. This round I cut down the udon portion, and replaced by more ingredients. Less noodles, more ingredients. I like it in this way. :)

Again, I would like to share the dish with Ruth's Presto Pasta Night #132. This week, the host is Sara from I'm A Food Blog. The round up will be on the coming Friday.

I luv udon too. I prefer to braise my udon instead of stir-fry so that it can absorb the flavour from the seasoning. I am drooling looking at your udon now.....!

I think it is fair enough that he had to clean the pot :). And that looks like a great impromptu recovery meal. Thanks for sharing this with Presto Pasta Nights this week!

No problem SimpleGirl. It's my pleasure to share my dishes. :)

New Kid, thanks for the incident, otherwise the method of cooking may not came across my mind. Hehe...

Food for Tots, for braise method, then have to reduce the time of blanching the udon, right?

Sara, no problem. I've been addicted to participate in weekly PPN. :)

Husbands/boyfriends so really silly things sometimes. They frequently involve burning and/or fire. At least this prompted a delicious meal!
