Noodles with Vegetables in Hot Garlic Sauce

This wonderful dinner was made by A with his sous chef S.  I just had to click a few pictures and had a hearty meal.

The Hot Garlic Sauce ( serves 4)

Bell Peppers – Red and Yellow – 1 each 
Spring Onions – 1 nos 
Carrots – 1
Onion – 1 medium size
Ginger – 1 “ – chopped fine
Garlic cloves – 4 nos – slivers
Sesame Oil – 2 tbsp
Corn Flour – 3 tbsp
Red Chili Sauce – to taste ( but this is spicy gravy)- Maggi was used
Tomato Ketchup – 2 tbsp
Vegetable stock – 3 cubes
Soya Sauce – 2 tbsp
Vinegar – 1 tbsp
Sea Salt – to taste
Pepper to taste

Peppers were chopped 1” size
Carrots – cut to discs
Finely chopped spring onion - ( the onions were cut in quarters and individual layers were separated) – the greens were chopped finely.

Take oil in a pan
Add the garlic and ginger .  Sauté till lightly brown
Add onions and the onion bulbs of spring onions – add salt
Then add carrots – bell peppers – and the spring onion greens – in that order
Sauté – Add the pepper also
Put in sufficient water – this will be thickened later - so it can be slightly liquidy at this stage
And the crushed stock cubes.
All sauces and vinegar
Cook till veggies are just about tender.
Dissolve cornflour in water and mix and add the sauce to the gravy.
Heat on low till the gravy thickens

(you can also add beans, mushrooms and bamboo shoot)

Noodles: 300 gms
Cook noodles as per the instructions on the pack

Veggies cut lengthwise - 
Bell peppers - 2 small
Carrots - 1 
Spring Onion - 1
Eggs -3 ( optional)
Garlic - 6 cloves
Soya Sauce - 1 tbsp
Vinegar - 1 tbsp
Salt and pepper to taste

Beat 3 eggs.  (optional) – scramble egg with some salt.
Take a wok – preferably big sized one where the noodles can be vigorously tossed without mashing them
Heat oil
Add the garlic – slightly brown
Add veggies with salt and pepper – Sauté

Add part of the sauce when the veggies are being sauteed and some salt too
Now the noodles
Stir or toss if you are good at it
Add remaining sauces.
If you are adding the egg add it now.

Plate the noodles and pour the veggies hot garlic sauce on it.  If you like you can just drown the noodles.  Tastes even more delicious.

Eat steaming hot!
