Egg Nest

There are days when trying to find something suitable to cook for children can be a real hassle.  However, with spaghetti and noodles you can never go wrong. The dish below is surprisingly simple and easy to make and tasty too.  My 8-year old daughter prepared the dish under my supervision - so she just loved eating what she had made. Of course getting her brother to eat something his sister made is an entirely different story - sibling rivalry.  But after explaining to him that it was my instructions and my menu and she was the one who was just "stirring" in everything, he agreed it was a good dish.  Sometimes with the war we have at our house between the two children, I think my husband and I could be good negotiators of peace in the Middle East because if you can negotiate a peace at our house, you can negotiate it anywhere. 

Preparation Time:  10 minutes
Serves: 2

Ingredients:

2 eggs, hard boiled
200 grams egg noodles
1 chicken soup cube
1 carrot, grated
1 teaspoon garlic chilli sauce
2 tablespoon tomato sauce
1 red onion medium sized , minced
Salt to taste
1 tablespoon corn oil


Method:
  1. Heat oil in pan.  
  2. When hot, saut√© onion in oil and fry for 2 minutes on medium heat.  
  3. Slide in noodles, soup cube, grated carrot and garlic-chilli sauce.   
  4. Pour approximately two cups hot water to cover the noodles and cook on simmer point till they expand. 
  5. Turn off heat and swirl in tomato sauce.   
  6. Transfer to a serving dish.  Shell and serve the hard boiled eggs on top of the noodles.
