In the past few years ,Chinese Food has gained a lot of popularity in various parts of the world. Each country has made some additions and subtractions and thus have localised the food. Our country is no exception. We Indians have conveniently named the category as 'Indo-Chinese'. Right from Manchurian to Fried Noodles to Szechuan/ Szechwan Rice ..we love it all .And so we try to experiment with the basic ingredients with each passing day. Recently i came across this recipe on the net which i think is not only easy to make but can also be a full meal in itself. Also it is a form of our 'very own -Bhel/Chaat ' but with the tangy Chinese taste ,adapted to the Indian palate. Take a look at it:
- 250 gms Ching's Hakka Noodles (you can also take Whole Wheat Noodles for a healthier version)
- 1/2 cup finely chopped Spring Onions (with greens)
- 1/2 cup shredded Cabbage
- 1/2 cup grated Carrot
- 1/4 cup thinly sliced Capsicum
- 1/2 cup Sprouts
- 2 tablespoon Tomato Sauce
- 2 tablespoon Szechuan Sauce
- 1 tablespoon Chilli Sauce
- 1 tablespoon Vinegar
- Oil for frying
- Chopped Coriander
Preparation Time" 15 minutes
