Indian Chowmein / Indian Style Noodles

This one is dedicated to the new food variety popularly known as "Indo- Chinese" and people have become so innovated these days that some restaurants in Singapore have renamed this category as "Chindian Food" Anyways I'll go by the first discovery name From the Indo-Chinese Menu.

So please note the ingredients for a Veg Noodles Platter:

  • 1 Packet (Plain Tops Noodles) or any other brand of your choice you can also pick up a new brand called Ching's noodles available in most asian grocery stores abroad.

  • 1 Green Capsicum (Thin and long sliced)

  • 1 Carrot ( Thin and Long sliced)

  • 10 French Beans (Long Vertical Cut Thin)

  • 1 Onion (Long sliced Cut)

  • 1/2 Cabbage (Long and thin sliced)

  • Salt to taste

  • Chilli Powder to taste

  • Soy Sauce - 1 - 3 tsp.

  • Tomato Ketchup - 3 tsp.

  • Chilli Sauce (Green ) - 2 tsp.

  • Chilli Sauce (Red) - 1 tsp.

  • Vinegar - 1-2 tsp.

  • Spring Onions -2 tbsp. Finely Chopped

  • Refind Oil - 4 tbsp.


  1. First Boil eight cups of water and put the noodles packet after breaking them in half.

  2. Let it boil for precisely 4 Minutes..Please be really cautious that you should not over cook the noodles else they loose their charm.

  3. While they are boiling add 2 tsp. of Salt and 1 tsp of Refind Oil.

  4. Now drain and wash them under Cold Tap water and let them stay for 2 minutes in a stainer.

  5. Incase you feel that they are a little sticky you can add i tsp of vegetable cooking oil and with the help of your hand coat it on the Noodles.

  6. Now take 2 tbsp Vegetable Refind Oil (Saffola Gold/Sunflower/Any Brand) in a Wok. Now You must be wondering what is a Wok..For those of you who don't know..Its a Chinese Style Non Stick Karai. Big and Deep.Perfect for making noodles. Incase you don't have , use an Indian Karai.

  7. Now fry the Capsicum, Carrot, Cabbage (Very Little), Onions, French Beans all separately. Please do not over cook, they should be every veggie should be cooked for a minute or two really fast by stirring constantly.

  8. Take out veggies and keep them together.

  9. Now take 1 tsp of oil in the wok put all veggies and Noodles together and with very loose hand start mixing them gently.

  10. Sprinkle Salt, Chiili Powder and Mix well so that it spredas evenly all over.

  11. Add Tomato Ketchup (Maggie, Heinz, Any other), Chilli Sauce (Green One) (Sin Sin, Tops, Chings, Any other brand of your choice), Soya Sauce (1 tsp if using a dark soy sauce else 3 tsp if using a light soy sauce), Vinegar (2 tsp), Red Chilli Sauce - 1 tsp.

  12. Mix well so that the noodles are evenly coated with multiple Sauce and flavours.

  13. Let it cook for 2 minutes stirring gently.

  14. Serve Hot with topping of Spring Onion sprinkled all over it.
