Vegeterian Chow Mein

One of my all time favorite dish. I love the taste of Hoisin sauce and the blend of soft noodles with my favorite stir fried veggies makes it a wholesome food. Hope you enjoy making and eating this wonderful dish.

The dish has 3 main parts to it. They are:
Preparing the noodles
Preparing the vegetables
Preparing the sauce


1½ cups boiled noodles
1 tablespoon hoisin sauce
1 teaspoon sesame (til) oil


½ cup onions, sliced
1 teaspoon ginger, grated
1 teaspoon garlic, chopped
1 teaspoon celery, chopped
¼ cup carrots, cut into thin strips
¼ cup baby corn, cut into 4, lengthwise
1 cup mushrooms, sliced
½ cup bean sprouts
1 teaspoon oil
salt to taste

2 tablespoons hoisin sauce
½ cup water
1 tablespoon cornflour


Mix together the hoisin sauce and the noodles. Keep aside.

For the vegetables, heat the oil over a high flame and sauté the onions, ginger, celery and garlic for a few seconds. Add the carrots, baby corn, mushrooms and salt and sauté for 2 to 3 minutes till the vegetables soften. Add the bean sprouts and sauce and bring to a boil. Keep aside.

Now in a non-stick pan, heat the sesame oil and add the noodles. Arrange evenly on the surface of the pan to make a pancake. Cook till the noodles are golden brown in colour and lightly crisp. Carefully turn the noodles around cook over a slow flame for 3 to 4 minutes and then slide them on a serving plate.

Pour the sauce over the noodles and serve hot. In seperate bowls serve chilli vinegar and soya sauce.
