Here is another easy Indo-chinese lo mein recipe that I tried some time back, and this is definitely a keeper. The tangy spicy sauce, and the crunchy vegetables stir fried along with noodles makes this dish appetizing and wholesome. I say wholesome because I load it with veggies, and use Whole wheat noodles so the nutrition quotient is high.
1/2 lb whole wheat linguine or any other noodles that you prefer
1/2 tbsp Soy sauce
1 tsp red chili powder (adjust the spice accordingly)
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/2" ginger minced
1 tsp brown sugar
2 tbsp Maggi tomato garlic sauce (this sauce is the key to the recipe)
2 cup Vegetables such as bell peppers (capsicum), green beans, carrots, scallions, broccoli chopped length wise
1 medium onion, chopped length wise
Salt to taste
Oil for cooking
P.S- Adjust the Maggi sauce, red chilli powder, salt and brown sugar accordingly. Just make sure you taste the sauce prior to adding it into the pan and the taste should be very spicy, a bit sweet.
1) In a mixing bowl, add the soya sauce, red chilli powder, garlic, ginger, brown sugar, and the Maggi tomato garlic sauce. Mix this well and set aside.
2) Mean while, bring a pot of water to boil, add salt, and boil the noodles al dente, drain, and set aside as well.
3) Then, heat a wok, add sufficient oil, and fry onions till golden. Then, add the veggies like capsicum, cabbage, carrots, broccoli, scallions etc., and stir fry on high. Then, add the sauce that we mixed at step 1.
4) Finally, add the cooked noodles and combine everything well on a medium flame.
That's it! This is a simple recipe but a keeper for sure.
