Easy Thai Noodles

For those who are wondering why the title says 'Easy', it surely is the easiest recipe for making noodles at homes. This Thai Noodles recipe is easy-peasy to make and a total no-brainer. This dish is a weekly-regular at my friends place who shared the recipe with me. I tried it tonight for the first time and it was so very yummy. Thank you Deepika for this super quick dinner fix :-)


Preparation time: 10 minutes
Cooking time: 10 minutes

Ingredients:
wok noodles - 200g
eggs - 2 (veggies can skip this)
thai stir-fry mix - 200g
(chop: spring onion -2, green capsicum - 1/2, red chilies - 2, cabbage - 1/2 cup, red onion - 1 small)
white vinegar - 2 tsp
soy sauce - 1 tsp
chili sauce - 2 tsp
tasting salt - 1/4 tsp
black pepper powder - 1/2 tsp
Oil - 2 tbsp

Steps:
1. Add noodles to boiling water and cook for 3 to 4 minutes (or until cooked), then rinse briefly with cold water to keep from sticking and keep aside.
2. Heat up wok or large frying pan and add oil.
3. Break eggs in the heated oil and stir with a spatula until eggs are cooked (like scrambled eggs).
4. Add the chopped vegetable mix. Stir and leave for a minute.
5. Add vinegar, soy sauce, chili sauce, pepper and tasting salt. Toss well. And leave for 2 minutes.
6. Add salt to taste. Now add the cooked noodles and toss well for couple of minutes.
7. Remove wok from heat.

If you like your noodles extra spicy, accompany this with Thai chili sauce. ENJOY!

Tips:
1. You can cook the noodles in advance, like, in the evening and keep them aside. Then just before making the dish rinse the noodles to separate them.
2. If you like the dish spicy add more red chilies in the veggie mix and add a lil more chili sauce.
