Oh did I tell you that my niece and nephew are the smartest and the cutest things in this world? I took a carrot-zucchini cake for them, and they totally enjoyed it. These kids are marvellous. They eat anything thrown at them. In fact, my niece takes after my dad's family and me ;) and eats just pickles. And she is all of 3 odd years! Here is he
So, B kept on cooking wonderful meals for A and me, and finally on Saturday night, before we hit the downtown, we all craved for noodles. The Indo-Chinese ones :P Though A and I try out various cuisines and are foodies in the true sense of the word, we had not tried out noodles at home. B effortlessly threw in linguini and all other noodly looking food in boiling water and stir fried some veggies, and before I knew it, I had a steaming bowl of noodles in front of me! This post goes out to her - a super mom, and a responsible wife and a great cousin ;) Thanks!
1 cup chopped carrots
1 cup chopped onions
1/2 cup chopped bell peppers
1/2 cup chopped cauliflower

4 tbsp Soy sauce
4 tbsp oil (more than enough for 4 adults and 2 hungry, 'we love
Magic sauce ;) for which we need-
- Tamarind pulp

Mix these ingredients to make a watery sauce like mixture and pour when you cook these noodles!
Want to eat some? Here is how you make it!
1. Boil the noodles with 1 tbsp oil and 1 tsp salt. Set them aside.
2. In a wok, heat 3 tbsp oil. Add the vegetables and fry them until well done.
3. Add salt, soy sauce, the tom-chi sauce and the 'magic
4. Add the noodles and mix well. Let everything cook for 10-15 mins.
5. Serve hot without flipping it all over the table like I did!
The kids ate them with bare hands sitting on the table :) Just shows good they were! Well, we used forks but we were no less than the kids!
Of course, you could add cabbage or peas or spring onions in this recipe. She just did not have them at hand, so we did without it. Also, she did not add ajinomoto for purely health reasons, and we certainly did not miss it! In fact, we craved for more noodles and we came back home on Sunday night and ate Maggi noodles :D
