Veg Chow Mein Recipe, Indian Chinese style (How to make Vegetable Chow Mein)

In this vegetable chow mein noodles recipe, I have added cabbage, carrot, mushroom and capsicum. You can add finely chopped green beans, cauliflower, baby corn etc.

We are chopping the vegetables finely unlike other indo-chinese dishes. If you have patience and practice, do it by hand using knife. Or you can use food processor which will make your job much easier.

According to your taste, all the sauces (soy sauce, chilli sauce, ketchup) and vinegar are adjustable. The addition of ketchup gives nice sweet, tangy taste.
