Make Vegetable Fried Noodles At Home

One of my favorite Chinese dishes I love to cook by my style. My family is not a vegetable eater, so I always prefer to cook different dishes adding vegetables when possible. I know even most of you also hate eating veggies! But let me tell you once you taste this Chinese recipe you'll surely love the smell & bites of veggies.

I remember when I was a child - mama always wanted me to eat beetroots, she tried everything to make me eat that red little thing. And all of a sudden she came up with a sweet dish prepared mainly from beetroot, Yes! I know this may sound strange to you, but experiment's do work. I crave for this sweet dish "beetroot halwa" all the time during winters. I loved her experimenting ideas & I am hoping you too, like my vegetable experiment in this Chinese dish.

Vegetable Fried Noodles

Vegetable Fried Noodles Food Recipe by the hoggerz

Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: Less than 15 minutes
Total Time: 25 minutes
Serves: 2 persons

1 cup Noodles
1 tablespoon Cooking oil
1 small Onion, thinly sliced
2-3 peeled and finely chopped Garlic
1/2 cup chopped Capsicum (Cut it into little cubes, You can also use red or yellow bell peppers)
1/2 cup peeled & chopped Carrots - Slice them roughly in a Julienne  or matchstick shape.
1 chopped green chilies
2 tablespoon of Soy or Soya sauce
2 tablespoon of Chili Sauce
1 tablespoon Vinegar
1/2 teaspoon Red chili flakes
Salt to taste
Chopped fresh cilantro or coriander leaves.

Step 1:
  • In a boiling water, add 1 cup noodles, 1/2 teaspoon salt & 1/2 teaspoon or few drops of cooking oil. Adding cooking oil will block the noodles from clumping. 
  • Leave it for 5 minutes & let the noodles cook in low-medium flame.
  • Once noodles turns soft & fluffy turn off the flame.
  • Strain the noodles quickly so that they don't get over-cooked. Remove them in a plate & keep it aside.
Step 2:
  • In a pan, heat oil & add 1 small thinly sliced onions. Sauté well.
  • Add chopped garlic cloves & half teaspoon of red chili flakes. Sauté well.
  • Once onions turns transparent, add chopped capsicum & Julienne and dice carrot.
  • Add chopped green chilies. You can skip green chilies if you don't like too much of spice in your food.
  • Cover the lid & let the carrot cook for 2-3 minutes on a low flame. You can also add spring onions, beans or green peas.
  • Now add salt, soy sauce, red chili sauce, vinegar. Mix it well. Add little by little amount of soy sauce, vinegar & red chili sauce. Later, you can increase its amount after adding strain & boiled noodles.
  • Now add all the noodles & mix properly.
  • Add soya sauce, red chili sauce & vinegar if needed.
  • Saute for 2 minutes so that the masala & vegetables gets mixed properly with the noodles.
  • Remove it in a bowl or plate. Garnish with 1 teaspoon chopped spring onions or 1 tablespoon of grated cheddar cheese. I prefer half teaspoon of chopped cilantro as I don't like the taste of spring onions, I am one of the spice freak & if you too love spicy food then you can try schezwan sauce in fried noodles & fried rice for hot, sweet & tangy taste.
  • Serve hot.
Isn't it quick & easy dish for your kids or friends!!!
