Crispy Vermicelli Pasta with Seafood Egg Gravy

East meet west fusion noodle dish?! Instead of using the usual fried egg noodle, I replaced it with vermicelli pasta, preboiled and air fried till crispy. It turned out amazing successfully! I must say that its definitely healthier using air frying rather than deep frying of the noodle.
