This stir fry noodles recipe uses yellow noodles (lye/alkaline noodles) which is a type of freshly cooked noodles coated with oil to prevent sticking. These fresh noodles are commonly found in Southeast Asia dishes.

A generous amount of cooked chilli paste is added to this spicy variant of stir-fry noodles, tasty with lots of heat. I use chicken fillets in this recipe, use other types of meat or seafood if you prefer.

You may opt to make your own homemade noodles for a healthier alternative.
