  • Remove and drain on an absorbent kitchen towel. Blend cornstarch in quarter-cup water and set aside. Heat two tablespoons of oil in a wok, add chopped ginger, garlic, and stir-fry briefly. Add sliced onion and sauté for a minute or until it turns translucent.
  • Add chicken and stir-fry on high heat for two minutes or until the moisture evaporates. Add carrot, beans, cabbage, spinach and stir-fry for two minutes or until the vegetables are just cooked but still retain the crispness. Add pepper powder, MSG, salt and sugar.





  • Stir in the tomato sauce and the vinegar. Pour in the stock, bring to a boil, reduce heat and stir in the blended cornstarch. Simmer for two minutes or until it thickens to a sauce consistency. Add bean sprouts and tofu and stir well.
  • Meanwhile using the remaining oil, prepare fried eggs in a non-stick fry pan. Arrange a portion of the fried noodles on a plate, pour a portion of the prepared sauce and top with a fried egg. Serve hot.
