There is nothing quite fun' like cold weather and hearty comforting meal:) But frankly, I cringe going back to my college days at New Delhi. Imagine, hostel room - without heaters, me pulled over with big huge razaayi(comforter)!!Somehow...it still gives me fright!!!
Anyhow...myself and my roomie used to sneak out to this nearby Chinese fast food place' for some steaming hot soup or fried noodles:) Hmmm, since we were not allowed to eat out without prior notice(?? come on, how is that possible??) so we just go back and bhavla(pretend) to eat the mess food! Oh boy, those were some days...
Well, I have couple of rules to make my noodles. Typically, throw in lots of colored vegetables, as much as possible! So, you need to decide what kind of vegetables that you like the most, and its important to make sure that they remain crunchy. Its not that it is hard to figure...key for better noodles is to cook them in salted water and rinse them in cold water several times(to get rid off that wax coated stuff, that comes in today's packages), Fry them over high heat' to achieve perfection.
Noodles 1 box
Bell peppers (yellow, orange, green and red)
Soy sauce thick
Hot sauce (optional)
Ginger 2" grated
Garlic 1 clove minced
Sesame seeds (white) 1/4 spoon
Sesame oil 1/4 cup
Green onions to garnish.
Cook noodles in salted water for few minutes and then rinse them well. Set aside.
Stir-fry the vegetables, with a pinch of MSG(or skip it). Set aside.
In a very wide wok, heat oil...add sesame seeds, ginger and garlic. Fry over high heat.
Now throw in noodles and fry till oil coats well and its kind of fried.
Now, add the vegetables and soy sauce...continue frying over high heat.
Remove and garnish with green onions. Enjoy:)
