KFB Foodie Talk: Pumpkin leaf (ugu) noodles recipe


For our newbies, the KFB foodie talk column – handled by Dobby of Dobbysignature –
is basically for ladies and ‘guys’ that are interested in learning how
to cook better ;). Today, the beautiful food blogger discusses  Pumpkin leaf (ugu) noodles

an easy recipe for homemade noodles. I decided to try this recipe out
when i noticed it first at a roadside noodle stand close to where i
stay. People would gather wait in line for the male owner to prepare
this meal and it sold faster than anything else around. He usually has
this big pot of water boiling non-stop so it takes less than 10 minutes
to process one order. Most times, people even book in advance and before
it gets to your turn you’d end up waiting for hours. This is because he
prepares it fresh once it’s ordered. Just add fried eggs by the side
and the meal is complete. You can use any good quality noodles sold
around for this too. Here’s how it’s made.

  1. Bonus Bagging Review

    Online sports betting is expanding everyday and it's not hard to understand why. It combines two all-time favorite past-times – sports and taking risks. We can't all play professional sports. Most people can't take weekly trips to Vegas. But thanks to online sports betting you can have the thrill of watching sports and winning money at the same time. All in the privacy of your own home! It doesn't get much better than that.

  2. I add the ugu when my noodles is cooked that way the steam cooks the leaf or I leave it on low heat. The ugu shouldn't b much + it should be fresh if u have a garden select fresh ugu from there not strong ones o, it doesn't change the taste of my noodles..
