Veg Chow Mein


Had this Veg Chow Mien in a Nepali Chinese cuisine and wanted to try it at home.Chow mien is common in Indian Chinese cuisine.Vegetable chow mein,  consists of noodles with cabbage, bamboo shoots, pea pods, green peppers, and carrots. You can also prepare the indian style chow mein by adding paneer with the mixture of noodles and vegetables.  I made mine with the veggies available here and things in my hand.

2-3 garlic pods,minced/chopped finely
1/2 green/red bell pepper

1 tsp tomato sauce
1/2 tsp white/black pepper powder
A pinch Ajanamoto
Few drops Lime Juice
few chopped spring onions for garnishing.
Salt as needed.


                                Wash and cut the vegetables.

You can use Wet or dry can use the pasta sauce instead of tomato sauce.If u need more spicy can add chilly sauce also.
