How do you fry ramen noodles?

this is an idea i have wondered about for a while. i happened to do a google search and seen that there are recipes.

with me only having a sliding phone with primitive intrnet. i am limited on pages i can get.

i seen basically two types of fried noodles... that is briefly boiled then fried... and dropping dried noodles in oil.

has anyone here ever done this. how would each one turn up?

i am not ready for fancy stuff yet i am just wondering about texture and base taste

If you're able to get UTube there are a few how-to videos on frying ramen.

my phone can geet youtube but it freezes every 15 seeconds so i am limited to videos under a minute.

i tried a brief trial of brief boiled... i forgot to place nd result on a paper towel. so even though i let some oil drip into pan it left oil in my dish.

still open for tips and wondering about the frying dried noodles....

it has a similar taste of like fried rice... hmmm wonder if it would be better if i fried them in butter... i can see how some recipes add egg. that would make it more like fried rice....

i may have just invented 'cheaters fried rice'

I have used both methods. I prefer to cook them first and then fry them. I had to experiment with doing this for a garnish on a crab-lobster salad for the food photographer.

In Hawaii, we call Ramen, Saimin and Fried Saimin is a staple food!

Here's how I do it :

that's ONO (delicious in Hawaiian)

When I want fried noodles, the crispy kind I like to use thin steamed egg noodles. They do not require cooking first. That is what I used in this dish: Beef with Chinese Broccoli

You can use the ones that are not steamed, but boil them for a few seconds and cool in cold water first. Fry them after they are completely dry.

If you want to stir fry your noodles get fresh ones and boil them for a few seconds and cool in cold water. That is what I did here: Chow Mein with Velveted Chicken

My preference for fried noodles is any brand of refrigerated or frozen Yakisoba Noodles, no pre-cooking required.
