Home made fried spaghetti

~ My home made fried spaghetti ~

I took some initiative to cook for myself, when nobody is at home. I do not know what to cook until a fine moment I thought of fried spaghetti.

So, I took out a small pot to boil water for the spaghetti and while waiting for the water to boil, I grabbed a few cloves of garlic, peeled off the skin, and chopped them.

Then, I took out the chilli hotdog, let it at room temperature to defrost. At the same time, I searched for spring onion, or parsley (whichever ingredient is in the fridge), and one tomato from the fridge.

I slice a small opening on the posterior and anterior of the tomato, and dumped into the pot of boiling water to enable a smoother and easier peeling of the tomato's skin. Cut the tomato into small cubes and put aside.

Washed the spring onion thoroughly and then pat dry then with a paper towel. Finely chopped the spring onion and put aside.

Now take the chilli hotdog, sliced them into any shape that you would like to stir fry them together with the spaghetti.

Grabbed some spaghetti, put into the boiling water with a pinch of salt and a few drops of olive oil (to ensure the spaghetti to have smoother texture). Then, leave it to boil for about 5 minutes.

While waiting for the spaghetti, heat a pan with adequate olive oil. Put in the chopped garlic to fry and add in a tiny pinch of salt to flavor the garlic. It will force the garlic aroma out completely and then put in the sliced chilli hotdog to fry. Once the chilli hotdog seems to be almost fully cook, put in the tomato cubes. Continue the frying of the tomato cubes with the previous ingredients, until it dried off.

Now the boiled spaghetti should be done, and sieve to dispose all the water. Put the spaghetti into frying pan, and continue to fry; add in the finely chopped spring onion and add in a small pinch of salt to the spaghetti for taste. Continue to fry for 2 more minutes with full heat. Add in pepper (black pepper preferably) and lastly a small mount of lemon juice (depending to how large your spaghetti portion) for taste and aroma.

Close the heat, and serve :)
