Egg Chow mein Recipe



Todays' recipe is simple stirred and fried noodles with egg. The type of chow mein that I like most is Hakka chow mein or dry chowmein. Whenever I am in Kolkata during Durga Puja days, I find out that during wee hours in the morning, chowmein and tea is available in every nook and corner of the city. I have seen the small road side shop workers dry boiled noodles on a clean plastic sheet placed right on the street !! Rolls, cahow mein and tea is hard to miss if you are visiting Kolkata for the first time. It ensures that you are not famished during your pandal hopping schedule. To avoid maddening crowd we go late night and believe me it makes sense. 

Ingredients:
400 gms noodle (wheat flour noodles)
2 Onions, thinly sliced
1 Capsicum, deseeded and thinly sliced
2 Red Carrots, slit lengthwise
1 cup Cabbage ,cut into lengthwise
1 tbsp Pepper Sauce (I use American Gardern)
2 tsp Dark soya sauce
2 tsp Vinegar 
4 Garlic cloves, peeled and chopped finely
1 tsp chopped Garlic
Dash of ground White pepper
3 Eggs -scrambled 
Salt to taste
Oil

Method:

Boil noodles as per instruction written on the back of pack. You should boil them until they are just cooked not too soft. Do add a dash of salt and 1 tsp oil in boiling water (mine took just 5 minutes). Drain and keep aside.

Place a wok on high flame and pour oil after the wok gets hot, add chopped garlic and fry until the garlic begins to smell fragrant. Remove from oil and you are ready with garlic infused oil. Add the onions, carrot strips, capsicums and stir fry until the capsicums and carrots are tender but crisp. Add soya sauce, vinegar and pepper sauce and mix on high flame. 


Now add ginger and cabbage on high flame and toss to coat. Add the boiled noodles, salt and pepper powder and stir fry on high flame. Finally add the scrambled eggs and check the seasoning. Enjoy this delicious egg chowmein hot. This chowmein can be enjoyed with Chilly Chicken.

  35. I had tried chow main with egg noodles sometime back and my family just didn't like it... I guess it was too dry.. or maybe we are too accustomed to the watery maggi noodles... this looks fantastic.... i feel like grabbing a bowl right off the screen...
