Egg Rice Noodles Using 5 Spice Powder

Rice Noodles is a quick noodles which can be prepared in a jiffy. The noodles has to be soaked in a boiling water for couple of minutes and drained is further rinsed with a cold water to use in delicious soups and stir fried recipes. In my today's recipe, I have used simple egg noodles using rice noodles and 5 spice powder. The five spice powder is a mixture of five spices like star anise, cloves, cinnamon, pepper and fennel seeds which is also a very popular seasoning in Chinese cooking. Addition of this powder, enhances the taste of dish and also gives a delicious authentic taste. I have also added generous amount of spring onion leaves to give a yummy taste and flavor to the noodles.
