In a large frying pan on medium heat, add 4 tablespoons of Olive Oil and the Vermicella (Fideo) noodles. Make sure you have enough oil to cover all the noodles.
Once you’ve mixed the noodles in the oil, add the onion.
Fry the noodles (without water) until the noodles turn a golden brown as you continue to stir them. Be careful not to let them sit there because they will burn easily.
Keep your water close by because when you see the noodles hit the golden brown stage you will immediately add the water to stop the noodles from frying. You may need to continue to add water as it cooks. The amount of water you add will depend on the consistency you are going for. If you like your Fideo more Soup like, then add more water.
After adding the water, add the tomatoes and garlic (and Chicken or other meat your prefer)
Let simmer until all the water is almost fully evaporated. Taste the noodles and if they still have a small crunch to them, add another cup of water. Repeat this process until the noodles are soft.
Voila! You’re done! Serve warm and enjoy!
