Snake Bakmi Goreng

Nagini was a female Maledictus cursed to transform into a snake. Originating possibly in Indonesia, by 1927 she was a performer at the Circus Arcanus where she met Credence Barebone and had the ability then to transform at will. By 1994, Nagini was seemingly trapped in snake form and belonged to Lord Voldemort, with whom she had a special bond largely due to becoming a Horcrux, after her master had killed Bertha Jorkins in 1994.

After Voldemort’s initial downfall, he used Nagini’s venom as one of the ingredients for a Potion to regain strength, which eventually led to his rebirth in 1995. Later in the same year, she attacked Arthur Weasley but he managed to survive. During the Second Wizarding War, she had to be destroyed for Voldemort to finally be defeated. Nagini was killed by Neville Longbottom with Godric Gryffindor’s Sword in 1998 and was the last Horcrux to be destroyed.

Ingredients

2 Edamame Noodles portions
3 tbsp Olive Oil
2 Eggs (lightly whisked)
2 Chicken Breasts (sliced)
1 Garlic Cloves (minced)
200g Kale
4 Spring Onions (sliced)
1 Celery Stalk (thinly sliced)
100ml Chicken Stock
1 tbsp Gluten Free Soy Sauce

Whilst noodles and soy sauce are not gluten free, I have used alternatives to make this dish so. I purposely chose green noodles to replicate the snake skin and included many green vegetables across the recipe to keep blending in those colours. The eggs form a thin omelette sliced and scattered over the noodles giving a rough yet slimy texture to the dish. Whilst I didn’t include them in the recipe, you could add some deep-fried onions on top for an additional crunch.

Step by Step Instructions

Step 1
Heat 1 tbsp oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Pour the whisked eggs into the pan and swirl to form a thin omelette. Cook for a minute until it is cooked on the bottom then carefully turn it over to cook over side. Once fully cooked remove from the pan, and slice into thin strips. Keep warm aside.
Step 2
Cook the noodles according to package instructions then drain and rinse with cold water. Set aside.
Step 3
Heat a wok over high heat. Add the remaining oil and swirl. Add chicken and garlic and stir-fry for 2 minutes. Add the kale, spring onions and celery and stir-fry for another minute. Finally stir in the stock and sauce sauce.
Step 4
Add the noodles to the wok and stir-fry for 3 minutes or until thoroughly heated and noodles begin to lightly brown. Add the omelette pieces and toss gently. Serve in bowls.
