    ReplyDelete
  17. @Anonymousyes u can use, cooking them before frying makes it soft when u toss with sauce or it will be too crispy

    Hi Aarthy,

    I used to prepare many dishes from your site. But yesterday I thought of prepapring vegetable noodles.So i started thinking like that and I ended with this Chopsuey. Taste was superb and everyone in my family loved it. The only problem I found was, I had mixed the sauce and after 15 mnts only everyone came to have it and so it was lil cold thought the noodles were crsipy. Next time i will make sure I will mix only, when everyone comes in :).
