Vegetable stir fry Thai noodles


This is a simple recipe which can be cooked with no fuss- Ah, the hard part is chopping the vegetables...Especially, when someone like me becomes over ambitious and tries to add all known vegetables to mankind :P


Jokes apart, stir fry noodles can be made without much fuss and you can be super creative with it- 




Ingredients-
  • 1 packet of noodles
  • 1/2 red bell pepper (chopped into thin strips)
  • 1/2 yellow bell pepper (chopped into thin strips)
  • 1 medium sized onion (sliced)
  • 1/2 zucchini (chopped into thin strips)
  • 1/2 carrot (chopped into thin strips)
  • 1/4 cup sweet corn (that comes in a tin)
  • 5-6 pieces of mangetout or snap peas
  • 1/4 cup sprouts
  • 1/4 cup mushrooms (sliced)
  • 1 spring onion (sliced)
  • 1 small piece ginger (chopped into thin strips)
  • 3 cloves garlic (crushed and chopped)- Needless to say, I am a huge fan of garlic!
  • 2 tbsp mild soya sauce
  • crushed black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp red chilli flakes
  • salt (according to taste)

Phew! now that's one long list of vegetables...In all the hassle, I forgot to include tofu pieces-



Preparation-
  • Add the pack of noodles to a pan of boiling water. Allow it to simmer for five minutes. Don't over cook your noodles and keep loosening them with a fork to stop them from sticking together.
  • Drain and refresh in a bowl of cold water. Keep it aside.
  • Stir fry the vegetables in a wok. Add the ginger and garlic first. Allow the oil to take the flavor. 
  • Saute the sliced onions.
  • Add mushrooms, bell peppers, carrots, sprouts, spring onions and sweet corn. Keep stirring the vegetables.
  • Add the zucchini, snap peas and continue stirring.
  • As the vegetables start to get tender add the soya sauce, crushed black pepper and chilli flakes.
  • Add salt according to your taste.
  • Keep stirring till all the ingredients are well combined.
  • Add the noodles to the wok and stir fry for five minutes. 
  • Sprinkle some chopped coriander (optional) and serve immediately!
