Noodles are a staple food in Asian cuisine. Our version of stir fry noodle ‘mine frire’ is a Mauritian-Hakka recipe just like our Popo (grand-ma) used to make them! The great thing about these noodles is that, apart from the noodles, all other ingredients can be substituted to your liking! Our video below is a special combination noodle made with chicken, prawns, lup cheong and egg!
In Mauritius, this is always served with some garlic sauce!
