Indo Chinese Vegetable Noodles

Whenever we visit India our first restaurant meal has always been a Chinese cuisine, and  Indo Chinese Vegetable noodles is the first thing we go for. I prefer calling it 'Indo Chinese' vegetable noodles due to the customization done to the original version of Chinese dishes, primarily to suit Indian food palates - turns it spicy & full of flavor. 

I've visited few countries but never seen any alteration done to Chinese preparation the way India does it, we have redefined Chinese flavor to millions. And above & beyond all that conditioning, every household has its own special touch to it. Today I'm going to share mine. 

Ingredients:
1 packet of Noodles (uncooked) (150gms)
5-6 medium sized spring onion bulbs cut in julienne
Few spring Onions green cut in julienne
1/8 cabbage cut in julienne
1 carrot cut in julienne
1/2 red capsicum cut in julienne
1/2 green capsicum cut in julienne
1 tsp ginger paste
1 tsp garlic paste
2 tbsp hot chilli sauce (or to taste)
2 tbsp tomato ketchup
1 tbsp white vinegar
1 tbsp soya sauce
1-2 tbsp oil for cooking
salt & pepper to taste

Method:
Boil noodles as per package instructions. Drain & soak in cold water for about 5 mins to prevent them from cooking further. Drain & mix with 1 tbsp of oil to prevent them from sticking. Keep aside

  • In a wok, heat some oil & once hot add ginger garlic paste. Saute for a minute & add the spring onions. Saute again for a min. 
  • Now add the red capsicum, green capsicum, carrots & saute till these veggies a partially cooked. Try to retain the crunchiness of these veggies. 
  • Now add the cabbage, saute for 1 min. 
  • Follow by adding all the sauces like chilli sauce, soya sauce, tomato ketchup, vinegar & salt pepper.  
  • Add the drained & cooked noodles & mix well till all is well combined. 
  • Add half of the spring onions green (reserve half for garnishing) & mix well. Cook for about 1-2 mins. 


That's it, our Indo Chinese Vegetable Noodles are ready. Garnish with some spring onion greens & serve hot!!
Enjoy!!
Happy Cooking!!
