Lo mein noodles with Orange chicken

This is veggie lomein noodle with Asha's Orange chicken.

Lomein Noodles with Veggies

Ingredients

Noodles - 1 hand full
Red pepper - 1/2 (sliced)
Green pepper - 1/2 ( sliced)
Onion - 1/2 (sliced)
Cabbage - 1/2 cup (shredded)
Olive Oil - as needed

For Sauce

Corn starch - 1tbsp
Soy sauce - 1tsp
Hot chilli sauce - 1tsp
Salt - as needed


Method

Cook the noodles in boiling water with a drop of olive oil (so that they don't stick) and little salt.Drain them and keep it aside.In a pan, heat olive oil and saute onion, peppers and finaaly add cabbage and salt.Just saute them, do not fry them fully.They should have that crunchy taste.Now make the sauce by mixing the ingredients listed under "For sauce" with little water.Pour this into the veggies and and keep stirring it.('coz the corn starch will get thick too fast and you don't want lumps of sauce in the noodle).Finally add noodles and toss it well with the veggies.I serve them hot with Asha's Ginger chicken.




Tips : Always add few drops of oil while cooking noodles to keep them from sticking.Pouring cold water on cooked noodles as soon as they are drianed will also prevent them from sticking.
