Boil up water in an electric kettle. Put mie noodles in a suitable bowl, pour over with boiling water to cover the noodles completely & allow to soak for 5 – 6 minutes, then drain noodles over a colander & set aside until further use.
Peel off garlic, ginger & shallot & chop finely. Cut white cabbage into thin strips. Peel carrot & cut into thin slices. Wash sugar snaps, pat dry with kitchen towel & possibly halve them once. Cut spring onions into fine rolls.
…for the sauce:
In a small bowl combine 100 milliliters vegetable stock, 2 tablespoons hoisin sauce, 1 tablespoon soy sauce, 1 tablespoon fish sauce, 1 tablespoon brown sugar & 1 heaping teaspoon sambal oelek & mix together until well combined, then set aside until further use.
…for the stir-fried noodles:
Heat up a wok or large pan adding a dash oil, add shallots, garlic & ginger to the pan & stir-fry over high heat for about 1 minute, stirring constantly. Next, add cabbage, sugar snaps & carrots & stir-fry for another 2 – 3 minutes with a constant stir.
Afterwards push the vegetables to the edge of the pan, crack up the eggs & add to the pan, allow to curdle a bit & then stir everything together until the egg is completely fried. Finally add mie noodles & prepared sauce to the pan & stir-fry everything until the noodles have soaked up the complete liquid.
Spread noodles on deep plates & serve garnished with spring onions & sesame seeds (white & black). I wish you lots of fun cooking 😉
