This is a keto-fied version of Fried Noodles, or Mee Goreng, inspired by the Japanese version of Yaki Udon. These have a slight Indian influence on them since my friend is from Brunei. His mom used to get this for him whenever she went to the coffee shop, and he wanted to re-create it!
The typical ingredients in this are ketchup, chili paste, potato, tomato, tofu, sweet and dark soy sauce, and it’s served with a citrus and chili sauce. There are three well known versions of this: chicken, beef, and seafood. For the chicken version (what we are making), it’s usually served with bite-sized pieces of Chicken Tandoori and is very popularly served in Indian coffee shops.
If you’re feeling a little more adventurous and want it to be a bit on the spicier side, you can always take your favorite chili paste (Sambal Olek has very few carbs for the spicy punch it gives) and saute it with the garlic and spring onion while cooking.
Note: If you’re not a fan of Zoodles, Shirataki Noodles would work just fine – drain, rinse, and dry cook the noodles on a high heat and have everything else ready.
