Here's a simple fried noodle dish , in indonesia it'a called Bakmie Goreng, their version of Chow Mein. In Indonesia, yellow noodles is one commonly used type of noodles and besides that, i also see quite a number of bakmie goreng which uses air dried noodles. So if we're using air dried noodles, we just do it like how we normally boil the air dried noodles till they are cook and then fry with the rest of the ingredients. Chicken meat is also commonly used in noodle dish as the majority population there are Muslims, you can use pork or any seafood if you like. There's no stock required, the initial sauteing of the onions and garlic and also the seasoning from the sweet soya sauce and fish sauce already made it a very tasty noodle dish.
Recipe adapted from here with some changes made
250gm yellow noodles
napa cabbage 60gm, cut into 1/4 inch width
