Vegetable Schezwan Noodles

The word 'Noodles' reminds only of Chinese food, but the interesting fact about these thin Noodles are it derives its word from Latin word Nodus (Knots), via German Nudel (Noodle, Pasta). The Chinese, Arab and Italian all claimed to have been the first to create this string-like food, though the first written account of noodles is from the East Han Dynasty between 25 and 220 CE. Noodles have been created from flour and water since 1000BC and today they are more popular than ever. Noodles symbolise longevity in China.

The authentic Chinese preparation is bland, but thanks to our Indian version of Chinese which makes Chinese Food so popular in India. Personally I am not so fond of Chinese Food, but is relished by my hubby so try to make it once in a month, only at one condition he helps me in chopping the veggies which is a herculeas task in most of the Chinese cooking.

50g. Egg Noodles
3 Tablespoons of Home made Schezwan Sauce
1 Tablespoon of Soya Sauce
2 Tablespoons of Finely Chopped Ginger and Garlic
1 Cup of finely Chopped Spring Onions
1 Cup of Chopped thin juliennes of Cabbage
1 Small Chopped Tomatoes
1 Cup of finely Chopped Capsicums
1/2 Cup of Baby Corns
1/2 Cup of finely Chopped juliennes of Carrot
1/2 Cup of Finely Chopped of French Beans
Salt to taste

1. Boil the Egg Noodles by adding a teaspoon of oil, so that they dont stick with each other. Once the noodles are boiled, drain them and keep it aside to cool.
2. Take a deep wok, heat the oil and saute spring onions, ginger and garlic for a minute. Add Tomatoes and a pinch of salt and allow tomatoes to cook till oil leave the vessel.
3. Now add all the vegetables and saute till they are almost cooked.
4. Once the vegetables are cooked add 2 Tablespoons of Home made Schezwan sauce and soya sauce and mix with the vegetables.
5. In the end add boiled egg noodles, salt to taste and remaining Schezwan Sauce and mix it well. Let the noodles simmer for 2 minutes and then serve it hot with Fried Rice.

Hi Purva, Noodles look amazing. I agree being in this part of world that food is quite bland. and noodles are not always dry. We are served noodles in huge pots with lots of soup and noodles and veggies like Bok-Choy. Sichuan cuisine is actually spicy but for veggies like me there is very little option. Guess you need to develop taste for it as its really healthy!
You have tempted my taste buds!Need to try it soon
