Veg. Noodles

Another concoction from Ishy's kitchen... we were expecting some evening guests for tea and I wanted to serve some warm noodles. also had bits of veggies in fridge that was in dire need of being cooked up - so in it all went with the noodles.


Noodles (any type)
Chicken stock: 2 bouillon cubes
Carrots: in thin slices
Cauliflower: 1 cup
Cabbage: 1 cup
Spinach: 1-2 bunches
Onion: 1 med in chunks
Garlic: 4 cloves in slices
Lite Soy sauce: 1/4 cup
Coriander powder: 2 tsp.
Red chili powder: 1 tsp.
Green chili: 2 split
Salt to taste
Mint leaves: 1 bunch

1) Bring the bouillon cubes to boil in 4-cups of water. Add the noodles and carrots. I add a 1 tsp of oil, 1 garlic and pinch of salt to the water.

2) Cut all veggies , onion and garlic into chunks.

3) Heat about 3 tbsp. of oil in a large pan or pot. Sautee the onions and garlic for 1 min or until onions are transparent.

4) Add the cauliflower and cabbage. Add salt to taste and coriander powder. Add soy sauce and stir fry. Let cook 2-3 mins in low heat.

5) Pour the the stock and noodles into the pan. Toss all together. Add the spinach, mint leaves, green chilis and red chili powder.

6) Pour some ketchup on top- abt 1/4 cup. Stir and cover. Let cook on low heatfor 4-5 mins or until stock dries out.

7) Sprinkle some tasting salt on the top and serve! Garnish with some mint leaves.
