I'm not sure if this really counts as a new recipe as such, but ...
After a day helping my daughter move house yesterday no one felt like cooking, so we had one of our very rare takeaways. Today there was almost a full portion of leftover plain chow mein, my choice originally as I'm not keen on Chinese takeaway, but in my defence I was seduced by the super crispy chips the others had & I stole/ate too many of them
So inspired by EGOR I doctored it with a Tablespoon of the home made chilli oil, a Tablespoon or so of chopped Sichuan preserved vegetable, a big splash of Chinkiang vinegar & some spring onion tops. The result was a totally transformed bog standard chow mein
am I obsessed by EGOR? definitely
My only regret? forgetting to give it a sprinkle of Mala powder before eating, however it's inspiration for a totally home made version next time.
