Soupy Noodles

Soupy Noodles is one dish meal. This is very good option for dinner specially in winter. This is quick and easy to make. My kids love them more than hakka noodles. This is quite healthy and comfort food than noddles. 



Ingredients:
  • Noodles, roughly broken- 100 grams (half pack)
  • Capsicum, chopped- ½ cup (1 no.)
  • Carrot, thinly sliced- ½ cup (2 no.)
  • Cabbage, grated- 1 cup
  • Mushrooms, chopped- ½ cup (optional)
  • Soya mini chunks- ½ cup
  • Spring onions, white part or onion, chopped- ½ cup
  • Ginger, minced– 2 inch piece
  • Garlic, minced – 8 cloves
  • Green chilies, minced – 2
  • Fresh coriander with steams or celery stick, finely chopped- 2 tbsp
  • Spring onions, green part, chopped– ¼ cup  (for garnish/optional)
  • Red chili powder – 1 tsp
  • Maggi masala cubes, crushed- 3 to 4 (or Maggi Masala Magic-1 pack)
  • Soy sauce- 1 to 2 tbsp
  • Chilli sauce- 1 tsp or to taste
  • Vinegar – 1 tsp
  • Black pepper powder – 1 tsp or to taste
  • Salt- to taste
  • Water or Vegetable Stock – 3 cups (or more)
  • Oil – 2 tbsp


Method:
  • Chop all vegetables. 
  • Heat a oil in the wok. Add the onion and sauté till it turns pink. 
  • Now add the chilii, ginger, garlic, coriander or celery stick and sauté for a while. Add all vegetables one by one and salt. Sauté over high flame for 2 minute.
  • Add crushed magic cubes, chilli sauce, soy sauce, red chilli powder, black pepper powder and mix well. 
  • Add the vegetable stock or water and bring to a boil. 
  • Add soya chunks and noodles and let it cook in the stock till done over medium flame. 
  • Check the seasonings, add salt and pepper if needed. Switch off gas.
  • Garnish with spring onion greens and serve piping hot.

Notes:
  • Use any vegetables which you like and available. 
  • Use boiled chicken or tofu instead of or with soya chunks.
  • I used here Chinese seasonings, but you may use Italian or any seasonings for this soup.  
  • I do not use cornflour for soups, I like as it is. About this soup, noodles cook in the soup, they release some starch in the soup. Thus soup become little bit thicker. If you like thick soup, you may add 2 tsp of corn starch/flour mixed with water for thickness.
