Pumpkin leaf (ugu) noodles recipe

Here's an easy recipe for homemade noodles. I decided to try this recipe out when i noticed it first at a roadside noodle stand close to where i stay. People would gather wait in line for the male owner to prepare this meal and it sold faster than anything else around. He usually has this big pot of water boiling non-stop so it takes less than 10 minutes to process one order. Most times, people even book in advance and before it gets to your turn you'd end up waiting for hours. This is because he prepares it fresh once it's ordered. Just add fried eggs by the side and the meal is complete. You can use any good quality noodles sold around for this too. Here's how it's made.
