Instant Black Bean Noodle (Jjajangmyun '짜장면')

Assalamualaikum! Ahn-nyeong-ha-se-yo! Hai all!

How are you doing ? It's already December! We are going to reach the 2013 soon! So, have you re-check your 2012 moments yet? Hehehe hope everybody had a great 2012 so far!

Anyway, today I would like to share an improvised instant noodle with you. Yeah, I-N-S-T-A-N-T... Just like you improvised your Maggi Mee. Hehehe.

I'm going to use the Nong Shim Chapagetti Chajangmyun noodle for this recipe. It is actually the instant version for the famous Black Bean Noodle or well known as Jjajangmyun.

Let's check it out!


1 packet of Nong Shim Instant Chapagetti Chajangmyun
1/2 cut of potato
1 tsp of potato starch flour / corn flour (mix it with some water)
1 cut of boneless chicken breast
1 tbsp of sweet plum sauce
1 tbsp of sweet soy sauce
1 tsp of sesame seeds
2 tbsp of sesame oil
1/2 cup of water
Some boiled vegetables (eg: beansprouts, tofu, mix vegetables etc)
Some grated vegetables (eg: cucumber, carrot etc)

*This recipe is for ONE (1) serving*


1)Cut the boneless breast chicken into cube. Mix the sesame seeds, sweet plum sauce and sweet soy sauce together with the chicken. Marinate it for about 10 minutes.
2)While waiting for the chicken to marinate, boil the Chapagetti Chajangmyun noodle in a boiled water together with the dried vegetables that come together in the packet for about 8 minutes or until the noodle is well-cooked.
3)Cut and slice the potato into thinly square bite size.
4)Boiled the 1/2 cup of water in a pot together with the potato.
5)Once it is boiled and the potato has become tender, put in the instant soup powder that comes together with the instant chapagetti chajangmyun. Mix it well. Put 1 tspn of potato starch water if the sauce is not thick enough.
6)As for the chicken, heat up a frying pan with the sesame oil. Stir-fry the chicken until it turns brown in colour.
7)If you wish to eat the noodle with some vegetables, boil some beansprouts, tofu, mix vegetables etc. You may also grated some of the cucumber or carrot if you want to.
8)Place the cooked noodle in a bowl. Put the sauce on top of it, some vegetables and then the chicken. Mix all together.

And try to eat it with Kimchi! YUMMEH!
