Vegetable Chow mein



Chow mein is very popular Chinese dish of stir fried noodles with vegetables, available with many variations. This time I post one of my favorite Indo-Chinese recipes i.e. “Vegetable Chow mein”. It’s a very popular between adults and kids.

Chow mein is also common in Indian Chinese cuisine. In India, It is usually offered Hakka or with gravy. Catering to vegetarian diets, there is an Indian variant, vegetable chow mein, which consists of noodles with cabbage, onion, pea pods, peppers, and carrots and some sauces with soya sauce and vinegar. You can choose any combo of vegetables or as per availability.

1/4 Cup Carrot
1/2 Cup Onion
