Crispy Noodles with Sweet Ginger Scallion Sauce


I need a white home… a spotless white home. White walls, white marble floors, white doors n windows panes, white couches, white sheets… everything white! Yes I really need everything around me to be white! But there is hardly anything around me that is white anymore or can stay spotlessly beautiful white for more than 2 minutes. Hello and welcome to the world of a mom of two little boys who doesn’t believe in color white.

I love my kids more than anything in the world, every moment with them is automatically imprinted on my memory board, my tear ducts have never been such an emotional rut… well I am a mommy and they mean world to me! AND THEY DON’T LIKE WHITE!!!!!! And you know what; THEY RULE!!!!!

So let’s rock colors and spots and messes and stains for now. WHITE CAN WAIT!


And let’s enjoy all the messy food in every part of the house without worrying about the whites and lights… Let’s eat these noodles on the couch, or the bed, or on the carpet…. Let’s have fun!

Pan-fried crispy noodles cake topped with sweet ginger scallion sauce is the star today and once you taste these babies you are going to be hooked for life. The crunchy noodle cake and the sweet and tangy scallion sauce is perfect together.


This Sweet Ginger Scallion Sauce that I used for one of my most loved recipe Soba Noodles with Sweet Ginger Scallion Sauce is the same sauce in today’s recipe minus cilantro and with just a little tweaking here and there. If you have tried this sauce earlier and love it exactly the same way please use that recipe here. If you want add some roasted chicken or may be some grilled seafood. Don’t be afraid to play around, it is all about you and how you want to enjoy your meal. As I always say, use any recipe as a guideline and never forget to add your touch!


This is no doubt an easy no fuss yet to die for delicious meal!

So go ahead and make it, and all mommies and daddies out there enjoy all the little messes, and the stains and the spots you see all around the house… Time flies and when everything will be all sparkly and spotless white we will miss these every single days…
