Vegetable Noodles



I love Chinese food,especially Noodles which is quick,easy and healthy meal.My kids ask for this atleast once a week But they prefer plain Maggie or Al Baker Noodles.

Back to my childhood memories..Chiyang! a Chinese restaurant in my place From there I first tasted Chinese food,Woooow!!But I have struggled a lot to eat noodles with fork after some time I lost my patience , used my hand to have the tasty noodles!! that taste is still there in my memory and I never got a chance to go to that restaurant after my marriage.

Noodles absorbs and set the texture and flavour of the other ingredients and sauces they’re served with,While retaining their own texture.So you can add ingredients as per your taste.This special recipe is a mix and match of various other Friday recipies.I like the light sweet and sour taste So here I used honey and Soy sause to give that taste.

Ingredients

Chinese noodles- 225 gms
Finely chopped garlic-1 tsp
Finely chopped ginger- 1tsp
Sliced Onion-1 small
Dried basil-1tbsp
Chilli flakes-1tsp(optional)
Honey-1 tbsp
Soy sause- 2tbsp
Lemon juice- ½ lemon
Vegetables
Carrot – 1 medium size julienned
Capsicum-1 medium size julienned
Button mushrooms- 4-5 diced
French beans -1/2 cup julienned
Chopped Spring onion-1/2 cup
Green chillies-2

Method

Heat water along with salt and bring to boiling point.Add noodles and boil for approximately 5 minutes.Take off from fire ,drain and keep aside.


Heat oil in a pan,fry ginger and garlic,Then add onion and sauté until it turns brown.
Add dry basil leaves and sauté for 30 seconds
Add all the vegetables and cook for a few minutes.Add honey ,soy sauce and chili flakes .
Mix well and fry for further 2-3 minutes.
Add noodles and stir fry until mixed well.
Garnish with spring onion and diced carrots.
