  • Tomato Ketchup, 1/2 tsp Tomato Ketchup ( optional )
  • Olive Oil, 1 Tbsp Olive Oil
  • Sesame Oil, Sesame Seed Oil, Gingelly Oil 1 Tbsp Sesame Oil

Instructions (Preparation Steps):

  • Cook Noodles as per the packet instructions in your stock pot and set it aside. Remember to run it through in cold running water to avoid overcooking due to steaming.
  • Heat oil’s in a wok, add ginger and garlic. Once browned, add onion thins, cabbage and saute for 2 minutes. Add carrot, peppers and saute until still crunchy. The vegetables must not over cook and loose shape.
  • Once still crunchy to touch, add the sauces – soy sauce, rice wine vinegar and chilli sauce. Give the vegetable mixture a good stir. Add Black pepper and salt and stir again. Remember that soy sauce already has a portion of salt, so add them slightly less than usual.
  • Add the cooked noodles and mix them with the vegetables using 2 forks. This usually gives the noodles a good mix of the flavors and the vegetables. Taste and add more sauce or seasoning as desired.
  • Make spirals with fork and layer them up in a bowl before serving. It tastes fabulous on its own, but if you would like a side, try along some Schezwan Potatoes.
  • Notes:
  • I do tend to avoid black pepper & chilli sauce if its for my little one. Instead I do add a bit of ketchup.

Cook's Tip:
Place overripe tomatoes in cold water and add some salt. Overnight they will become firm and fresh.
To reuse cooking oil without tasting whatever was cooked in the oil previously, cook a 1/4″ piece of ginger in the oil. It will remove any remaining flavors and odors.
Avoid deep frying. Substitute deep frying with stir frying or oven bake. Don't pour the oil, but make a habit of spraying the oil in the utensil for cooking. Heat the utensil first, then add oil. This way oil spreads well. You will use less oil this way.
