BM #94 Week 3 Day 2 - 

These noodles are comfort food for my kids and my older one makes them all the time. She cooks as a way to relieve stress and these noodles are relatively easy and quick to make. 

She makes about 3-4 servings, shares them with her sister, and packs away the rest for their lunch boxes for the next working day. I was surprised the other day when she made these in the middle of the night and left a note for me that I needn't worry about their lunch boxes the next morning. Would I be a bad mom to feel relieved? I honestly don't think so :).

If I were to make these noodles, I would definitely add grilled tofu to the side and some salad too.

Ingredients - 

*Noodles 3-4 Servings
Cabbage and Carrot julienned 2 cups
Onions sliced 1/4 cup
Sesame Oil 2 Tbsp (Any cooking oil is fine) 
Garlic, grated/crushed 2-3 Cloves
Salt as needed

For the Sauce -
Soy Sauce 3 Tbsp
Brown Sugar 2 Tbsp
Garlic Salt 1/4 tsp
Salt as needed
Pepper as needed
Paprika as needed
Red Chili Powder/Flakes as needed
Lime/Lemon Juice 1-2 tsp
Pasta Water 1/2 cup (Reserve the water after the spaghetti/noodles are cooked al dente)

* I use spaghetti most of the times.

Method Of Preparation -

Boil the noodles/spaghetti al dente as per the instructions on the package. Reserve 1/2 cup of the pasta water and set aside.

In a mixing bowl, add all the ingredients listed under the 'For the Sauce' and whisk until the brown sugar is dissolved.

In a heated wok, add oil and grated garlic. Saute until golden brown. Add in the onions and saute until translucent. 

Toss in the cabbage and carrots, stir fry for a few minutes making sure the vegetables retain a crunch.

Pour the prepared sauce, mix well and toss in the drained noodles/spaghetti.

Toss all of them so the sauce is absorbed well by all the spaghetti/noodle strands.

Remove from heat and serve immediately.


Preparation Time 25 minutes
Serves 3-4
