This all-in-one stir-fry has a South-east Asian influence, and it is ideal for today's cook who is so often short of time.

ingredients

serves 4
275 g (10 oz) Chinese egg noodles
30 ml (2 tbsp) vegetable oil
3 spring onions, chopped
1 garlic clove, crushed
2.5 cm (1 in) fresh root ginger, peeled and grated
5 ml (1 tsp) hot paprika
5 ml (1 tsp) ground coriander

method

1. Bring a large saucepan of salted water to the boil. Add the noodles and cook according to the packet instructions if using dried noodles. If using fresh egg noodles, cook for a few minutes only, stirring occasionally to separate. Drain thoroughly, cover and keep warm.

2. Heat the oil in a pre-heated wok. Add the spring onions and cook over a gentle heat. Mix in the garlic, ginger, paprika, coriander and chicken, then stir-fry for 3 - 4 minutes.

3. Add the peas, baby sweetcorn and beansprouts, cover and cook briefly. Add the noodles.

4. Combine the cornflour, soy sauce, lemon juice and sugar in a small bowl. Add to the wok and simmer briefly to thicken. Serve immediately, garnished with chopped coriander or spring onion tops.
