My Chinese boyfriend is usually the cook in our house and he can even make a few Finnish dishes as well! But sometimes (when he isn’t at home) I’ll cook my self too. Recently I’ve been making a lot of fried noodles, which is an easy, but tasty meal. And cheap! Just few RMBs.
Cooking this dish takes only 10 to 15 minutes. I noticed that after coming to China and especially recently I’ve been eating much less meat. I make my noodles with onion, paprika and cabbage. I also love tofu, so often there isn’t a need to have a meat dish. And if there is meat, it’s usually just for the taste in a form of few slices in a dish.
Cooking at home is great for someone in a student budget like me. The cost of this dish per one person is about 2RMB which is 0,24EUR or 0,32USD. For few slices of pork I would need to add 2-4RMB.
These are the prices when you buy your vegetables and meat from outside markets. It might not be the most hygienic, but I’ve never got any problems even after eating meat that has been on the table on the heat for hours.
I’m sure there are much better cooks among my readers, right?
