The new year brought about some changes to Radhika's brain child, Blog Hop Wednesdays. It has been made a monthly event now with a simpler pairing schedule with a few more bloggers joining the group. As per the new schedule, this month I have been paired with Kavi of Edible Entertainment

Amongst all the interesting recipes in her space, I chose to make these Vegetarian Chinese Noodles as they happen to be on my to-do list for a long time now. Incidentally this happens to be a family favorite too. 

Vegetarian Chinese Noodles

The restaurant version of these noodles definitely have loads of oil and the sauces used may not be all vegetarian and so many constraints for us, vegetarians!! It felt good to make these at home with the ingredients we know are safe to eat :)

Ingredients - 
Chinese Noodles (Hakka Noodles or Chow Mein) 200 gms
Vegetables (I used Onions, Spring Onions, Cabbage, Red Bell Pepper, Carrots) sliced 3 cups
Oil 2 Tbsp
Soy Sauce 2-3 Tbsp or as needed
Salt as needed

Optional Ingredients - (I didn't add)
Ginger slices as needed
Garlic 2-3 cloves or as needed, sliced
Red Chili Sauce as needed (I didn't add for the benefit of kids!)
White Vinegar 1-2 tsp
Chinese Sauce 1-2 tsp
Ajinomoto a pinch

Vegetarian Chinese Noodles

Method Of Preparation - 

Cook the noodles as per the instructions on the package. Drain and set aside.

In a heated wok/kadai, add oil and fry sliced onions first until they are half cooked.

Increase the heat, add the soy sauce and the remaining veggies and toss them so the soy sauce coats all the veggies.

Make sure the vegetables are not cooked through. They are supposed to be partially cooked with a crunch in them. Add in the noodles and toss them around until they are thoroughly mixed.

Remove from fire and plate the noodles with a garnish of chopped spring onion and optionally some hot sauce and enjoy!!
