Vegetable Chowmein Recipe/ Vegetable Stir Fried Noodles

This is a quick & easy vegetable chowmein recipe. Chowmein is particularly popular in Chinese restaurants. It translates to "stir fried noodles" in english. So, here's a veg chow mein recipe- step by step, in a video and also a written recipe.

It is popular in many countries and every country seems to have customised the recipe to suit their taste. This veg chowmein recipe here is modified mostly to indian taste because am an Indian. It's like the Indo Chinese recipes we get in chinese restaurants in india and on the streets.

I always add some tomato ketchup because I like the sweet- tangy flavour it adds to the noodles. You can serves this chowmein with some sauces or as it is.

Ingredients: [for 1]

  • Noodles- 60g/ single pack
  • Oil- to fry 
  • Soy sauce- 3/4 tbsp
  • Vinegar- 1 tsp
  • Tomato ketchup- 1/2 tbsp (or chilli sauce)
