Egg Noodles (Chinese Style)



Chinese egg noodles are so easy to prepare and the best way to make kids have more veggies and eggs in their diet ....well at least in my case :)

I usually make egg noodles as an after school snack, for my kids.  I also throw in some vegetables along with the eggs. I totally omit ajinamotto, but do make with a tad bit more of oil, than I use for other food; because the oil/fat brings out a more restaurant flavor to the noodles...but if you are calorie conscious reduce the oil to your preference.



While making Chinese dishes, I'd like to add garlic to the oil first, this is just to make the oil have a bit of garlic flavor. I also like to use oyster sauce, red chilly sauce, and a tad of rice vinegar.......if you have them use it!! I also used whole dried red chilly.....just for a spicy punch you can use green chilly if you prefer. One thing which adds a nice flavor to the dish is spring onions or green onions....it is a must!! so try not to skip it....the white part will go along with the veggies and the green part for garnishing.

Another important thing is while cooking noodles, make sure it is not over cooked....so cook until it is al dente 

Lets get cooking!!

Author: Nisa Homey.
Serves: 2 to 3

Ingredients:
Hakka noodles: 1 1/2 packets or about 250 gms
Vegetables: 1 small carrot, few beans, 1/2 capsicum, a hand full of spring onion etc....you can use cabbage or any other vegetables of your choice.
Garlic: 5 to 7 cloves.
Whole red chilly: 2 (optional)
Eggs: 2.
Soy sauce: 1 tbsp.
Red chilly sauce: 1 tsp.
Oyster sauce: 1 tsp.
Pepper: 1/2 tsp.
Salt to taste
Oil: 1-2 tbsp or depending on your preference.

Method:
Cook the noodles according to the instructions on the packet. Strain and run cold water over it and keep aside. Get all the vegetables ready.


Chop them up.

I love dried red chilly.

Heat oil in a pan, add in the garlic and when it starts to turn color, add in the white part of the spring onion, then the carrots, beans, and lastly capsicum.....remember we are stir frying the vegetables on high flame...so you have to be really quick and keep all the stuffs nearby. Throw in the red chillies...


Add in the soy sauce, red chilly sauce, oyster sauce, and pepper powder. Mix everything together.


Remove the stir fried semi cooked vegetables into a plate.....there will be some oil left in the pan.


Drop in the eggs.


Stir vigorously with a spoon....


Add in a bit of salt and pepper ...this is optional.


Now add back all the veggies in.


And add in the cooked noodles.


Give everything a nice stir or toss!!


Serve hot!!

Yum!!

Puff Pastry Recipe - Homemade Puff Pastry

Puff pastry recipe: Homemade puff pastry in 15 minutes, can you believe that??  Bakery style Puff pastry is so easy to make at home that you will never buy greasy bakery puffs. The best thing about this puff pastry recipe is that; it does not need any refrigeration (chilling the dough) or any other so called difficult method, you may see when you google for "puff pastry"

Easy puff pastry can be made with the most basic ingredients and in under 15 minutes.

Back in the 80's amma started making puffs at home; which my two brothers and myself used to enjoy a lot. She mostly used to make this for special occasions; like when a friend dropped in or when we long for something bakery style.

Fast-forward to 2014; my daughter, Nidhi loves puffs and I have been asking amma to teach me how to make and somehow things did not work out when I last visited her. Right now she is visiting us here in Calicut and I coaxed and buttered her to show me how to make puffs.

The first time she tau…

Caramel Pudding Recipe - Caramel Custard Recipe

Caramel pudding recipe; a delicious traditional dessert with creamy caramel over silky custard. Caramel custard is my favorite pudding.

All through my childhood, amma makes caramel pudding as a Sunday special.....achachen (my dad) love only this pudding...... 42 years of serving caramel pudding to him has made amma, a sort of an authority on caramel pudding recipe! Ah yes, like always this is amma's recipe. It is her signature, no-fail recipe. of caramel custard.



Okay lets talk about this pudding!!  I used 4 eggs because amma said so eggs are the show stopper here :)......it is needed to make the pudding silky-satin, and stand tall....and yes it will not crumble.....now you may wonder....won't this be eggy!!smelly!! I promise it won't....there wouldn't be too much eggy flavor! caramel flavor can do wonders!! Believe me!!



I am using my steamer or appachembu as it is known locally to cook the pudding. While the pudding is steaming, it is important that once steam comes, …

Vattayappam / Steamed Rice Cake / Kerala Style

Vattayappam is Kerala's own fermented SteamedRice Cake. One of the healthiest traditional tea time snack with almost no oil. It is popular in the Christian communities of Kerala, though not much popular in North Kerala/ Malabar.

 "Vatta" means "round" ......vattayappam is basically rice and coconut grinded together and fermented with yeast....it is very soft and pillowy.....a slightly sweet snack......these days, it has found its place in bakeries especially in Kochi and Kottayam...and when I got a request from an anonymous reader asking for vattayappam recipe...I thought of sharing the recipe...as it is very easy to make...and does not take much time to make. I usually make it as an after school snack as it is very healthy and filling for kids.
