Balaleet - Breakfast from Qatar

I found this on someone's blog. I edited her recipe to (re) add 1TB sugar. Her comment: "I did like the play of textures with the crispy noodles and fluffy egg though. I would definitely try this recipe again, especially for a brunch with other people!"

ingredients

  • 12 cup vermicelli, broken in to about 1 inch pieces or 1/2 cup cut spaghetti
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ginger
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 14 cup orange juice
  • 1 egg, omelette

directions

  • Boil Vermicelli about 2 minutes less than package directs. Drain then toss in to a mixing boil.
  • Immediately toss in sugar, cinnamon, ginger and mix well. The heat of the pasta will dissolve the sugar.
  • In a small non stick frying pan melt butter over medium high heat. Stir in orange juice.
  • Pour in noodle mixture and spread to flatten. Cover and turn heat down to medium low. Cook for 10-15 minutes until the liquid has absorbed and the bottom has crisped.
  • Set aside noodle cake and wipe out the frying pan. Make a one egg omelette. Cut the omelette into a few large pieces and serve on top of the noodle cake.
