Asian Style Fried Macaroni

Malaysians like their noodles. We have many kinds of noodles, from wet to dry noodles, thin vermicelli noodles to large egg noodles, we love them all. With the influence of foreign food and exposure to the Malaysian food scenario, some of us have invented new 'noodles' recipe, like cooking spaghetti and macaroni just the way we cook our noodles. Like the rest, I also have sampled many fried spaghetti and macaroni as they are lighter and healthier on the health side. To cook fried macaroni is simple. You just need a good wok and that's it! And... of course the ingredients!

1 packet of macaroni ( cook/boil until soft)
500g minced chicken/beef
10 fish balls, thinly sliced
3 cloves of garlic, sliced thinly
2 big onions, sliced thinly
a bunch of coriander leaves, finely chopped
4 red tomatoes, diced
2 grated carrots
1 tea spoon cumin powder
10 button/shiitake mushrooms, sliced thinly
pepper, to taste
1 teaspoon dried basil
salt, to taste
oil for cooking

1. Put oil into a heated big wok and fry the onions and garlic.
2. Add minced chicken/beef/fish balls and cook until tender.
3. Add grated carrot and tomatoes and cook for five minutes, or until they become tender.
4. Put in the mushrooms, basil and cumin powder.
5. Pour in the cooked macaroni and stir well.
6. Add salt and pepper to taste.
