Noodles have there history from China. The oldest noodle were found along the yellow river in China at Lajia archaeological site well preserved in an earthen bowl. Later wheat noodles were adapted in Japan from China by a Buddhist monk. Though instant noodles were first time invented by Monofuku ando and marketed in Japan. It is a staple food in China and Japan. Now it is eaten world wide and is available in lot a shapes like thin tubes, strings, shells, waves etc.Also their flavour and composition have a geocultural touch. Now i would like to share a recipe, for which i have choosen ribbon shaped noodles and used lots of vegetables to make a complete meal.
Veg noodles

List of ingredients needed:-

  1. Noodles 1 pack(250 gm)
  2. Onion 
  3. Tomato 
  4. Carrot 
  5. Capsicum 
  6. Cauliflower
  7. Boiled peas
  8. Salt as per taste
  9. 2 tbsp oil
  10. Water to boil

Looking at the step by step procedure:-

First of all cut all the vegetables longitudinally and keep aside. One can see in the picture below. I have not mentioned the quantity of vegetables as one can alter it according to their taste. Though i have used 1 tomato, 1 onion, 1 capsicum ,1 carrot and about 1/4 cauliflower.

Then in large pan take water. First let the water come to boil and then add the noodles, also one must add 1tbsp oil in the boiling water as it prevents noodles from sticking together. After noodles are boiled ie they become tender sieve through a strainer and run cold water over it. Keep them aside for later use.

Now take 2tbsp oil in pan, add onion and fry them till they turn golden brown in colour.

After that add carrot, capsicum and cauliflower, toss them so that they cook properly.

Lastly add the boiled noodles and peas. Add salt as per taste and toss all the content well. Cover the pan for about 5 minutes on low flame so that vegetables and noodles incorporate well with each other.

Serve these noodles hot with a glass of juice or any soft drink. They can be taken as a snack or during breakfast or one can also pack these noodles for their kids tiffin.
