Frying vegetables

If using eggs, whisk the eggs together in a bowl, move the veg to the side of the pan, creating a gap, add the eggs to this gap and slowly stir to create a scrambled effect. Then mix within the vegetables. If using meat, add back to the pan at this point. Add in the noodles and mix well.
