Chili Vegetable & Egg Stir Fried Noodles

10 Mar

Living in Delhi involves a lot of social commitments. Easily we end up eating outside meals at least three times a week. This is then followed by stomach issues. So whenever I can, I try to avoid the outside spicy food. So I prefer to replicate the restaurant dishes at home in a healthy way.

Recently, I just craved to have nice vegetable stir fried noodles. After having some Teppanyaki food on a our anniversary we relished the taste of egg in rice and noodles. Before this I have never tried putting egg in home-made noodles and rice. I tried with noodles this time and it worked really well.

This is my own recipe. I like it when I follow my instincts and the recipe works well. 🙂 It is indeed very satisfying.

So here is what you need:

Serves: 2 persons

200 gm egg noodles

2 tsp olive oil

2 dried red chili

4-5 garlic cloves, finely chopped or minced

1 green capsicum, sliced

1 small carrot, sliced

8-10 mushrooms, sliced

1 egg

7-8 french beans, sliced

1 tsp dark soya sauce

2 tsp vinegar

1 tsp red chilli sauce

3/4 tsp pepper

1 tsp salt

Method:

  1. Boil 5-6 cups of water, add some salt and oil. Add the noodles. Let them cook for  7 minutes. Strain them and add some oil so it doesn’t become sticky.
  2. Soak the dried red chili’s in a bowl of water. Keep aside for 10 minutes.
  3. Heat a pan. Add olive oil. Saute garlic till it becomes aromatic. Add the soaked chilies.
  4. Now add carrots, capsicum and mushrooms and french beans. Saute till they get cooked properly.
  5. Push the vegetables a little aside in the pan and add the egg to the same pan and scramble it well with a wooden spatula.
  6. Once the egg is cooked properly combine it with the vegetables (it may look a bit messy but once you combine with noodles it will become fine).
  7.  Add the noodles. Stir them properly.
  8. In a small bowl, mix the soya sauce, red chili sauce, vinegar, pepper and salt. Add it to the noodles.
  9. Mix well and serve hot!!

    I’ve always liked the egg in stir fried rice dishes, too, but never thought to combine it with noodles. Great idea, Gursahiba!
