I make two types of Noodles, one using the Indian spices, and the one using Chinese sauces.I love the chinese variety as its completely different from our regular curry taste, but you have to have the right sauces to come up with the right taste.The main ingredients for good chinese noodles are soy sauce and chilli sauce.The trick lies in the chilli sauce, we need to select the hottest variety rather than the sour ones from the International aisle in the grocery store.
The chilli sauce I use is nothing but the soaked red chili flakes in oil.I dont have the name of the sauce right now, but I will try to get the name and update this post.
Now here's the receipe
1 packet regular egg noodles or you can use the Noodles from your top ramen packets.
3 tsp soy sauce
1 tsp chilli sauce/ chilli garlic sauce (I used the sambal olek which is the malaysian chilli sauce variety, its extremly hot)
1tsp minced garlic
1 tsp minced ginger
1tsp chopped green chillies
2 tsp sesame oil
2 cups broccoli florets.
1 cups carrot strips
1 cup capsicum strips
1 cup sliced mushrooms
1 cup Onion cut into strips
1 cup chopped spring onions.
1 cup chinese sprouts (optional)
Cook the noodles as instructed in the package, filter the water and then run it under cold water
Stir fry the Broccoli florets in a pan without oil, with just a sprinkle of salt.Keep it seperate.
Heat up the sesame oil in a wide bottomed pan /wok
Add the chopped garlic, ginger and green chillies
Now add the onions and the fry well in high heat, now add the capsicum,carrots and the sprouts(op), strir well.Now add the soy sauce and chilli sauce mix well for two minutes.
Now add the Cooked noodles and stir well to coat all the sauces.Now check the salt and spice level, you can add more salt or chilli sauce depending on your taste.
Now add the chopped spring green onions and stir fried broccoli to the noodles and stir well.
Serve piping hot!!
Note: Sometimes I save the extra chilli sauce that we get from the chinese take out and use for this noodles and fried rice. This sauce is great for this noodles.
