Veg Noodles

My favorite cuisine included Chinese..., until I had it outside India.Has anybody tried eating Chinese food outside India? It is totally disparate & disappointing(for me, at least).You will not get the taste similar to what you used to get in India. Now, I understand that what we get in India is not authentic Chinese but Indianized version of the same...


My taste buds have ceased to function since I moved out of India. I get very easily bored of eating my own cooked food. I'm very fussy in eating unlike my hubby, who is fine with any food (as long as it is vegetarian). I am wanting to eat roadside pani-puri(gol-gappe), churmuri, gobi manchurian..., aha.., I'm drooling. Eagerly waiting to eat all these.....:))

OK, I understand that by consuming so much disk space filled with my blabbering, I will not get to eat these wonderful dishes..I guess, most of us who have moved out of India, will be having similar wishes.

We were in mouna vratha ( as usual some disagreement) before having our dinner.., so didn't get his comments about the noodles.., but the bowl indicated a lot. The noodles was all finished & nothing left!!



Ingredients:
500gms noodles (I took normal yellow noodles, you can prepare with flat noodles also.., if you wish like)
1 cup green, yellow, red capsicum (slit lengthwise)
1 small carrot (slit lengthwise)
1/2 cup shred cabbage
1/2 cup spring onions chopped
1 big pod of garlic(crushed & cut into very small pieces)
1 & 1/2 teaspoon black soya sauce
1 tablespoon tomato sauce.
2 tablespoons olive oil ( tastes better with this oil., other cooking oil can also be used)
1 tsp vinegar
salt according to taste

Method:
  • Cook the noodles & allow it to cool
  • In a broad pan, add the oil
  • When oil is hot, add garlic & spring onions
  • Once the garlic becomes golden brown in color, add the remaining vegetables (capsicum, shred cabbage and carrots)
  • Allow the vegetables to be cooked in oil for 2-3 minutes
  • Add the noodles, salt, soya sauce, tomato sauce, vinegar, salt and mix the whole thing, well
  • Cook whole mixture on a slow flame for 2 minutes
  • Garnish it with coriander leaves
PS: I have not added ajinomoto. If you wish to add, you may do so.
