You have to admit the frittata looks like an Italian version of our favourite telur dadar from most Nasi Padang stalls. This omelette is a little bit of both ⁠— with a little added boost to your tastebuds and satiety from instant noodles.

  • Prep: 10 mins
  • Cook: 15 mins
  • Yields: Serves 4


2 x 74 g packets oriental flavoured 2-minute noodles, broken, flavour sachets reserved

1 tbsp vegetable oil

1 red capsicum, sliced

6 green onions, sliced

7 eggs, at room temperature

1 tbsp soy sauce

Mixed salad leaves, to serve


1Preheat an oven-grill to high.

2Place noodles in a large heatproof bowl. Cover with boiling water; stand for 2 mins or until tender. Stir with a fork to separate strands. Drain.

3Heat oil in a large ovenproof non-stick frying pan over moderate heat. Cook and stir capsicum and green onion for 2 mins or until tender.

4Add noodles, cook and stir for 2 mins or until combined and heated.

5Whisk eggs, soy sauce and reserved flavour sachets in a jug. Pour egg mixture over noodle mixture, stir to distribute. Cook for 5 mins or until beginning to set.
