Shanghai Stewed Noodles


i didnt do noodles from a very long time and this time didnt want to do the same chowmein or hakka noodles which i do usually....so was finding a recipe which is quiet different from these 2 and in sanjeev kapoor's book i found this noodles recipe and tried this one yesterday & which turned out to be spicy and very delicious too...and the way its done also was very different...so try this and am sure whoever loves chinese noodles will love this one as well!!! I wanted the noodles to be dry so i put less amount of stock and if you want it as a stew turn off the gas when some water is left in it...

Ingredients


200 gms Chinese Noodles


1 onion sliced


2-3 Green chilli roughly chopped

2 tbsp spring onion greens chopped


6-8 garlic cloves crushed


1/2 capsicum sliced


1 carrot cut into thin fingers

5-6 mushroom sliced

1/4 cup shredded cabbage

3-4 cups vegetable stock


1/4 tsp MSG (optional)

1/2 tsp white pepper powder


2 tbsp chilli oil


1 tbsp oil


salt to taste


Red chilli for garnishing

spring onion greens for garnishing


Method
  • For chilli oil, heat 2 tbsp oil in a pan and add 6-7 red chillies and fry for 2-3 minutes till the smoking point and then let it cool for half an hour, discard the chilli and use this oil for noodles
  • Heat chilli oil,oil in a pan, add green chilli ,garlic, sliced onion and stir fry for 2-3 minutes and then add all the vegetables and fry for a minute
  • Add vegetable stock and bring it to a boil and then add the noodles and cook on a high flame for 2 minutes and then reduce the heat and simmer for 5 min till the noodles are cooked
  • Add MSG,white pepper powder,salt, mix well till noodles gets well blended and its dry
  • Garnish with spring onion greens & chillies then and serve hot
OR Do it this way like how i have done

Note:- If you want first cook the noodles in 4 cups stock instead of water, then after its cooked drain it keep aside and mix 2 tsp of oil(so that they dont stick) and salt to taste and do the rest of the method ( i have done it this way as i didnt want it to be like a stew) but i mentioned his exact recipe here.....so you can do it either way

  10. Very easy to follow recipe. How spicy is it? I suppose it depends on the chili...also I would not use the msg myself, does this effect the flavour?

    Thank you

  68. I love these kinds of noodles, though I am bit reluctant to add MSG. Have been reading in some place that MSG taste can be substituted with adding a spoon of sugar. Not sure if it not gonna replace the taste, coz I never have tried any dish with MSG. Yummy Noodles !
