I Remember Longing for Chinese-Food Ever Since My School Days... Those Days,It was one of the Popular Fast-Food Which had Just Started Blooming across the City....Since Noodles belong to Chinese Cuisine,I assumed that it was Confined only to Restaurants,but Indian Cuisine being the Mixed-Bag of all Cuisines has made it Possible to Relish any thing Under Our Sleeve with a Seal of Healthiness.Kids and teenagers love noodles, and this a healthy and quick way to get some veggies into the body.
Noodles are Ribbon like Narrow Strips of dried dough usually made of wheat flour,spice extracts and water...
Here goes my Husband's Version of Chinese Noodles in my Words...

2)1 cup chopped capsicum/bell pepper
3)1 cup carrot
4)1 cup beans
5)1 cup onion and tender sprouts(optional)
6)3 to 4 cloves of garlic, ginger

10)2 to 3 slit green chillies
11)2 Tbsp olive or vegetable oil
12)Salt as per taste
1)Keep the water to boil in a big pan
2)When water gets to a boil add noodles and cover the lid for about 8 to 10 minutes until the noodles are almost cooked. keep checking noodle threads to make sure that it is not overcooked.
3)Drain the hot water , wash it with cold water and spread the noodles on the plate and add 2 to 3 tsp oil(this makes noodles non sticky)
4)Add oil in a wok,when it gets to warm add finely chopped ginger,garlic,chillies,salt and fry for just 2 mins
5) Add vegetables starting from the hardest ( carrots,beans,onions,capsicum) on a high flame.
