Noodles: Cook pasta. Rinse and cool down. Set aside. Toss in red chile flakes and cilantro.
Wash cucumber. Slice diagonally into 1/4-inch thick slices. Slice into strips.
Heat wok thoroughly, add oil, then minced garlic. Stir fry briefly. Do not burn
garlic or it will take on an acrid smell and taste. (If this happens, throw it out
and start over.)
Add sugar and vinegar.
Add noodle to wok, stirring and tossing to mix until noodle is heated through.
Place on plates and surround with cucumber strips.
Cantonese Stir Fry Sauce:
1. Very concentrated. Use sparingly when stir frying vegetables or tossing with noodles.
2. Recipe doubles.
3. Refrigerates well, up to a month.
4. Stir thoroughly before using.
Chinese noodle is available fresh frozen, and can be cooked like any fresh
pasta. Bring water to boil, and noodles, separate. Drain and shock in cold water.
Toss with salad oil. Uncooked fresh pasta can be frozen indefinitely.
