Vegetable Noodles

When I was a kid, my mom never used to get me Maggi or any of those 2-minute noodles. Those were days when Maggi was sensational among kids. Friends of mine used to bring Maggi even for their lunch box. Whenever I asked mom for noodles, it would be just homemade veggie or egg noodles and I used to get angry over their stinginess. Never did it strike me that it was for my own good. Now reading articles on the "health benefits" of Maggi, I have completed skipped this out of our diet. Whenever I get a craving for noodles, it is either the homemade veg/egg noodles or pastas.

Once the vegetables are cut, making this is just a matter of minutes. You can whip up the whole dish in 5-10 mins.
Try adding this to your weekly menu regularly as you get the wholesome goodness of the veggies. Reason being we just half cook it to retain the crunchiness and that is kinda added benefit. Dump in loads of veggies and adjust the sauces to your taste and you will love this.

~*What U Need*~
Noodles - 1 packet (I Used Ching's)
Water - 6 to 7 cups

Carrot - 1
Beans - 10
Capsicum - 1 medium size Julienned
Onion - 1/2 sliced
Spring onion - 2 stalk sliced
Coriander leaves - 2 sprigs

Dark soy sauce- 1 tsp
Tomato sauce - 1 tsp
Green chilli sauce - 1/2 tsp
Black pepper powder- 1/2 tsp
Salt - as required
Garlic(finely chopped) - 1 tbsp
Oil - 3 to 4 tbsp

How I Made it:
Boil water in a large pot. When boiling, dump in the noodles and cook by adding 1 tsp of salt and 1 tsp of oil. Check a noodle by pinching. The texture should be neither mushy nor hard, just half through. This will take atleast 6 minutes. Pour this in the colander. Show this under running tap water to remove all the starch. Next dump it into cold water. So that they will not stick with each other.

Meanwhile heat oil in the wok. Add garlic and then the onions. Add the veggies after 2 mins, first the beans, saute for 2 minutes, add the carrots and then the capsicum. Saute for another 2-3 mins. Add the soy, chilli and tomato sauce and toss well. Now add pepper and salt.
Add the noodles. Toss till well blended, add the spring onion and serve hot.

So thats it Folks...
With Love,
