How to Make Fried Ramen Noodle Patties
- Cook ramen noodles (without seasoning) according to normal instruction,drain, dump into a large bowl.
Add to noodles the beaten eggs,chopped green onions,chopped water chestnuts, 2 packages of seasoning from the noodles,soy sauce, hoisin sauce, and any meats or fish as desired (must be in small pieces)
- Heat oil in frying pan, add afew drops of the sesame oil to the regular oil- then drop noodles by forkful into pan-(I use tongs and grab about 2 tablespoons of noodle mixture to form each patty). Fry until brown (about 4 minutes on med high) then turn over and brown other side-
Remove from pan and place on paper towel lined dish until drained.
Serve on a platter-warm (they like them cold also) with dipping sauces such as hoisin,sweet and sour, ranch dressing- (you pick it and they can dip it-whatever you have available but an oriental taste seems to fit best.)
Hint: To make for a larger crowd just double everything and add to 3 /6/9 additional ramen noodle packages- add pkgs by 3 and just double the ingredients.
