This dish is so quick to make, and very garlicky. You can see my addiction to garlic from my last garlic tomato chicken roast recipe..But in this recipe, garlic is used in a different avatar. It is fried and crushed. This noodles is so simple to make, just take around 15 mins to whip up from start to finish. So try it and enjoy it with any indo chinese sidedish..I had it with chilli mushroom..
