Log | Egg Tomato Udon


This year, I've added another resolution to last year's set of resolutions which is to cook more especially when I'm just spending the weekend by myself in my own apartment instead of balik kampung plus my parents are doing some major additions to our main residence so I won't be able to sleep in my room.

As I was looking for some easy recipe to try on YouTube, I've found this recipe that's very much appealing to my own taste plus it combines to things I love; tomato-based dish and udon i.e type of Japanese noodle. I've prepared this dish for like more than 10 times this month alone so I guess it's safe to say that I'm loving it already.

Now, you can get the ingredients quite easily from your local supermarket except maybe the udon which is why I'd pick up extra packets whenever I went out for grocery trip.

This recipe is for 2 to 3 people and you'll be needing these:-
  • 2 large eggs and cooking oil.
  • Thinly sliced garlic and olive oil.
  • Vegetables of your choice but for my favourite is sliced carrots and mushrooms.
  • 2 tomatoes preferably medium ripe.
  • 3 to 5 sausages or chicken breast. Your choice. 
  • Tomato pasta sauce as base.
  • 2 packets of udon
  • Scallion or spring onion to garnish.

Slice everything nice and well.

You can use cooking oil but I love using this olive oil for my fried dishes.


First thing first is to fried the eggs and put it away.

First is the garlic. Take some olive oil and fry the garlic until it's nicely yellow then add in the sliced carrots and let it cook for awhile. You can either sautéed them or just stir them well then add in the mushroom and tomato.

Then, add the sausages into the mix and cook for like a minute or two.

Then add the tomato base. I usually use the whole can for 2 to 3 people but you can use less or more; depends on how you like it.

Mix everything nice and well.

Depending on the udon that you bought, some brands required their noodles to be prepared with hot water for like a minute or two before you can directly pour into the sauce. 

Depending on my mood for the day, I'd be adding parsley leaves or Korean chilli powder at this point.

Stir fry the mix for like several minutes until the udon is nicely cooked then add in the fried eggs. Stir fry some more and have a taste. Add some salt if you'd like. 

Garnish with thinly sliced scallions or spring onions. 

Et voila! It usually takes me about 20 minutes from preparation to the finish so it's easy and quick even for a lazy busy person like myself. So I guess that's about it! Definitely let me know if you've tried this recipe and how do you tailored it to your preference by leaving comments down below. See you next post!
