Easy Vegetable Chowmein

With kids’ activities, homework, projects, weeknights tend to get really busy and that’s when you have to think of quick and easy recipes that are nutritious and tasty!One such easy option is to have a Noodles night,where Vegetables take center stage!My Vegetable Chowmein is packed with flavor, colorful veggies and comes together easily in a matter of minutes.You could use any Noodles you prefer for this recipe.I’ve used the brand ‘Ching’s’ available at my Indian Grocer.Ramen Noodles works really well too!


Indo-Chinese foods are very popular all over India and used to be our favorite take out choice almost every week!A typical Indo-Chinese menu consists of Chowmein, Chilli Chicken/Chilli Paneer,Manchurian Dishes amongst others and there’s ample choice for both Vegetarians and Non Vegetarians.The recipes are developed for the spicy Indian palette!They’re absolutely delicious albeit a bit greasy, but that’s the advantage of making them yourself, since you control the quality of ingredients.If you get a chance you should try them, since they’re very different from the authentic Chinese foods, but tasty nevertheless :)


My kids love to eat their veggies in Noodle dishes better than any other and I wonder if its the crunch or color or a combination of the two!And that’s why I make this dish so often!I start by boiling the noodles for two minutes, not any longer, since the noodles loose their texture!Once boiled I immediately run them in cold water.If you notice them sticking you can add a tablespoon of vegetable oil and mix them.The sauce is a mix of sweet and spicy,and its just my personal preference.I also use some Sriracha for the heat element along with Vinegar for some tang,Soy Sauce and some Ketchup!Its bursting with flavor and is absolutely delicious!

    I love and hate doing stir fry in my house. The reason why I love it is because…well…I love stir fry. The reason why I hate it is cause you just can’t get the wok hot enough on a conventional oven to really get that flavor that a typical Chinese restaurant can get. This recipe looks fantastic and I will definitely have to try! Thanks for sharing :)

    Happy Valley Chow
