Veg Chow Mein

panda-noodles-recipes-12

Wondering what to make for dinner tonight? Well try this simple and super easy veg chowmein prepared with minimal ingredients – a 15 minute recipe. Today’s recipe is a copycat version of Panda express Veg Chow mein recipe. Because of its smell, color and harmony of flavors, Panda Express food is loved by all. My family loves chow mein and finally I decided to recreate the same recipe at home. Homemade dinner always tastes better when you cook it with your hands and without a doubt its healthy and fresh. In my house, Chinese dinner is a must have once every two weeks. 

RECIPE DETAIL – I have used Yakisoba noodles for this recipe, it cooks faster so keep a close watch on it. Feel free to use thin spaghetti or noodles of your choice. Boil noodles as per package ingredients and drain. Combine all the ingredients mentioned under sauce and make a thick syrup, this way it will cling well to the noodles. Saute veggies until they are slightly caramelized, add noodles, sauces and mix. Save cabbage for the last, toss it when everything is well mixed, cover the lid and it will get cooked in steam.

Since I am going to pair these noodles with veg manchurian tonight, I have added the sauces on a mild side and have given a subtle and a unique flavor to my noodles. This way they blend nicely with manchurian and the flavor was great and not overpowering.  Feel free to improvise and adjust according to one’s taste. 

Looking for fusion food, try other varieties – Spicy veg noodles, Veggie szechuan noodles, Paneer Shashlik, Veg Manchurian rice, Veg Manchurian, Gobi manchurian Sweet and sour honey lemon paneer.
