Spread the Joy!
If it is cold outside and winter showed its complete face, I love to bundle up with a bowl full of hot noodles and a fork. Many times it will be instant 2 mins noodles.. My favorite noodles is Maggi and Top Ramen Curry noodles. My sisters favorite is a new brand called Yippee..
One of my friend told me that she cannot cook a instant noodles properly and she really felt a lot. I want to show her the proper way to cook it. So this post is for her.
This is great as lunch for your little kids, since there is lots of veggies added in this. I will always rinse my noodles well in cold water to prevent it being sticky and later I heard that you should rinse noodles for lots of health reason through facebook.
I am sending this recipe to Blogging Marathan Day 2 in the theme Winter Special.. Hope you love it..
Instant Noodles of your Choice
Vegetables of your choice – 2 cups (I used carrot,capsicum,peas,tomato and potato)
Spices of your choice – 1 tsp each ( I used turmeric,garam masala,coriander,cumin,salt)
Soy Sauce – to taste
Saunf / Fennel Seeds / Sombu -1 tsp
Spice Packet included in the noodles
Water to cook noodles and to cook veggies
Oil – 2 tblspn
Boil lots of water in a sauce pan. Add noodles packet in that water and cook exactly till the time given in the packet. Drain it in a colander and rinse well with lots of water, This removes the excess starch from the noodles. Now drizzle a tblspn of oil and toss well so that the noodles don’t stick with each other.
Heat 1 tblspn of oil in a kadai and add fennel seeds in this. Now add all vegetables in this and sauté for 5 mins. Add a splash of water and cover the kadai and simmer for 10-15 mins untill the veggies are cooked.
Now add all the spice powder and the masala packet which is inside the noodles and mix well.This mixture should have a little water in this so that it coats all noodles strands.
Add some soy sauce in this and mix well.Immediately add the noodles in this and toss well.
Cook for 2 mins and serve hot in a bowl with a fork.
