Vegetable Noodles

Noodles have become so famous in India that you can spot it in every Fast Food Van, Restaurant, Street side etc. The age group is such that Noodles has a huge fan following. The Recipe that I share is not the kind one gets in Restaurants, in the street side or in the fast food vans. My version is not hot but just medium spicy. I have not added any chilly sauce. The vegetables can be of your own choice. Though I have skipped using Cabbage, as in India, the Cabbage worm has caused health issues.

  1. Once the Noodles are cooked, drain the hot water immediately and pour some cold or room temperature water into the noodles. The cold water will not only remove the extra starch but will not make the noodles stick to one another. Rinse the noodles twice in cold fresh water and place it in a Colander or Sieve.
