Veg american chopsuey recipe (How to make veg american chop suey)

This is not classic american chop suey dish which is made from beef and macaroni. Instead this is Indian chinese version.

I have ordered this many times in India when we go for chinese dinner. This is my dad’s favorite. But here, I have not eaten that many times since hubby is fan of spicy food. He would prefer other dishes over this one.

I enjoy this because of the combination of taste and texture.

The crispy noodles bed and it is topped with warm sweet and sour vegetable sauce. Yumm!!

Few point to keep in mind when making fried noodles. If not taken care then you will end up with hard and chewy noodles. So follow the link mentioned below for tips.

You can fry the noodles a day before and store in airtight container. If you have noodles ready then making vegetable gravy will take only 15 minutes.
