Poodle Doodle (Malaysian Noodle Stir-Fry)

Total Time
Prep 30 mins
Cook 15 mins

My brother lived with us many years ago. He was a fussy eater, but was trying new things at last. One night when I was making this dish he tried a piece of lap cheong & declared it tasted like a poodle’s …. well, you get the drift. I started making this with a Kwan Du recipe, but don’t think I ever really followed the recipe very closely. We love lots of vegies in our stirfries – feel free to use your favourites. Reheats well in the wok or microwave.

I didn't have time to look for the "poodle doodle" sausage so I may have been missing an essential flavour for this dish but it was so tasty anyway. A nice mix of sweet, salty, hot spicy and aromatic from the ginger. I used all the veg listed plus choko and mushroom. Made for "Add More Veggies" challenge, ZWT4.
