Hmmm… I think I’m going to post up my frugal recipes on weekends from now on. It’s kinda nice to blog about food for a change. But my recipes would be frugal recipes or aphrodisiac, and the recipes would be really simple to follow.
I don’t think I have what it takes to be a gourmet chef, anyway. My purpose of cooking is solely concentrated on feeding hungry mouth…anything goes for me, as long as it’s edible.
I’m a small eater, but I hate to see food goes to waste. Remember my previous entry about Frugal Spaghetti? Well… I have plenty of leftover pasta sauce and spaghetti, even after walloping 6-7 meals of it. So, I decided to improvise a bit by cooking a simple fried spaghetti meal, as the leftovers are not quite enough to make a decent regular spaghetti meal.
This is the recipe:
Leftover pasta sauce and spaghetti
1 spoonful of chilli paste
4 tablespoon of cooking oil
2 tablespoon of soya sauce
Firstly, heat up the oil in the wok and sautÃ© the chopped onions with 1 spoonful of chilli paste, soya sauce and the leftover pasta sauce til fragrant. Then, add in the spaghetti, and coat the sauce evenly. Please note that salt are not needed for the recipe, the pasta already has the salty and tomato-ey taste.
Make a ‘hole’ in the middle of the wok by pushing the spaghetti aside, and crack the piece off egg into it. It should look like the picture below:
Wait til the egg is half cooked before stirring the spaghetti once again. The spaghetti should be slightly sticky with the egg when you serve it. More or less, the spaghetti should look like the picture below when it’s done.
Best eaten when piping hot. Suitable to be served as dinner or lunch.
Preparation time: 10 minutes or less
Yied: 2 servings
Cost estimation: Rm5 or less
