  • 1 medium sized carrot (chopped in Julienne style)
  • 115 grams of cabbage (chopped in long strands)

  • 8 ml of white vinegar
  • 5 ml green chilli sauce

Recipe Preparation

  1. Take a stainless steel bowl and bring about 7-8 cups of water to boil. Once bubbles start forming, add in the noodles without breaking it.
  2. Cook the noodles for 4-5 minutes, then drain and wash it under running water.
  3. Add 1 tablespoon of oil into the noodles and mix so that it does not get sticky. Keep the noodles aside.
  4. Next take a wok/kadai and heat in 2 tablespoon of oil. Add in the shredded garlic and let the flavour of it combine together with the oil.
  5. Fry the garlic till it changes to golden brown colour and a strong aroma fills the room.
  6. Add in the onion, carrot, cabbage, chillies, spinach and cook on high flame for 4-5 minutes.
  7. Note that the vegetables should stay crunchy as this is the essence of the dish.
  8. Next toss in the noodles and stir along with the vinegar, soya sauce, pepper and salt. Let this cook over high flame for another 2-3 minutes.
  9. Serve hot with tomato ketchup alongside.
