Vegetable noodles is a very popular Indo Chinese dish. I don’t think there will be anyone who does not like noodles.It is so easy to prepare and also tastes good. I have added lot of vegetables to make it more healthy. You can even use whole wheat noodles to make it even more healthier. Today we will learn how to make Mixed Vegetable Noodles following this simple recipe.
Bring water to boil adding a tsp of oil and 1/2 tsp of salt.Then add noodles to the boiling water. Stir it now and then to prevent the noodles from sticking together. Do not over cook the noodles. It should be cooked al dente. Test it by tasting the noodles. It should be firm but not hard.
Drain the noodles in a colander and run cold water over it to prevent it from sticking to each other.
Cut the vegetables (carrot, onions, cabbage and capsicum) into thin strips as shown below and keep it aside. This is a very important step.
Heat oil in a pan, add finely chopped garlic and saute for 2 seconds. Then add onions and saute for a few more seconds on high flame followed by carrot, cabbage and capsicum. Saute the vegetables on high flame.You should not over cook the vegetables ( it should retain the crunchiness).
(I did not add beans. If adding beans,cut it into fine strips diagonally and add it immediately after sauteing onions as beans will take a little longer time to get cooked. After the beans are partially cooked, you can add carrot, cabbage and capsicum)
Then add soya sauce, chilli sauce and mix well.
Add the cooked noodles, salt, pepper powder and toss everything together, so that the noodles get coated with the sauces well. Switch off the flame and garnish with spring onion greens.
Serve piping hot with tomato sauce.
Note -The whole process has to be done on high flames, stirring continuously. You can adjust the sauces as per your taste.
