Asian style spaghetti

When we mention spaghetti, the first thing that came to mind is the tomato-based, Italian style spaghetti. You know, the one with Bolognese and loads of tomatoes. Well, there are quite a few people I know who don’t really go for the tomato-based spaghetti. Some of them find it too sour or too darn weird.Then, there’s the creamy-based spaghetti which many Asians don’t quite like too because of it’s rich, creamy base.
Well, there is an Asian way to enjoy your spaghetti and it is easy to prepare too.

Asian-style Fried Spaghetti Recipe


Spaghetti, enough for three adults (about 200gm)

1 clove garlic, diced

10 fresh basil leaves

1 red / yellow capsicum (bell pepper), cubed

4 – 5 chili padi, chopped

1 tbsp chicken stock

1 pc chicken breast, sliced thinly

4 tbsp olive oil

2 tbsp butter


1. Season the chicken with satay powder (which you can find at most grocery stores) and 1 tbsp dark soya sauce for a couple of hours.

2. Heat up a pot of water till it boil and add in the spaghetti. Add in 1 tsp of salt and 1 tbsp olive oil. Let it cook for about 10 minutes. Check to see if the spaghetti is cooked and remove once it is cooked, when it is soft. Make sure you don’t overcook it or else it will become soggy.

3. Heat up some olive oil in a pan and sautee the garlic till fragrant.

4. Add in the butter. Then add the basil leaves, capsicum, chili padi and chicken. Stir fry till the chicken is cooked through.

5. Add in the chicken stock and stir to make sure it is evenly distributed.

6. Add in the cooked spaghetti noodles and stir it to mix the ingredients around evenly over medium heat.

7. Remove from heat and serve while warm.
