Vegetable Noodles

My all time favourite!!! I will eat noodles anytime anyplace anywhere, plain or spicy…
I guess most of the present generation are mad about noodles, spaghetti, pasta etc…
My family doesn't prefer buying the ready made noodles pack or the maggi/top-ramen types.
So I just buy plain spaghetti. Heres how I make it.

Noodles – 100 grams
Onions – 30 grams
Garlic – 2 pods
Carrots – 20 grams
Beans – 20 grams
Capsicum – 20 grams
Tomatoes – 15 grams
Oil – 25 grams
Salt – to taste

To powder:
Coriander seeds – 10 grams
Fennel seeds – 5 grams
Cumin seeds – 2 grams
Dry ginger – 4 grams
Nutmeg – 2 grams
Cinnamon – 4 grams
Cloves – 3 grams
Cardamom – 2 grams
Poppy seeds – 2 grams
Red chilies – 10 grams
Tamarind – 5 grams
Sugar – 2 grams

  • Dry roast the ingredients under “To powder” except sugar. Grind everything including sugar to a fine powder. This masala powder can be used for various dishes. This has a sweet, sour and spicy taste.
  • Finely chop all the vegetables and keep aside. We can add more vegetables like cauliflower, peas, potatoes etc…
  • Boil around 2 cups of water. Add little salt and put the noodles. Switch off stove. Cover and keep aside for about 5 minutes.
  • After 5 minutes the noodles should have been cooked. Drain the noodles from hot water and put them into a bowl of cold water. Keep aside for 2 minutes.
  • After 2 minutes, drain the noodles and spread it in a plate. Pour a spoon of oil on the noodles and keep aside.
  • In a kadai add the remaining oil,  add onions and garlic and fry until onions turn translucent.
  • All all the remaining chopped vegetables and salt. Sprinkle a little water and mix well. Cover and close for 5 minutes until all the vegetables are cooked.
  • Add 2 spoons of the masala powder and mix well.
  • Now add the cooked noodles and mix well.

Hot and spicy veg noodles is ready!!!
