Vegetable Noodles - Noodles Biriyani - Noodles Without Noodles Masala

Noodles are always a savior when you want to prepare something quick. Only thing is we have to cook noodles properly to remove the wax coating. At times, it is also good to discard the seasoning mix and prepare your own seasoning. I made mine very Corn'y along with onions, tomatoes and carrots as my lil one loves corn a lot. You can add veggies as per your taste buds. You can also use any plain noodles for making this. Now to the recipe.


Noodles - 1 pack

Onion - 1, cut lengthwise
Tomato - 1, cut lengthwise
Vegetables of your choice (carrot, cabbage, beans, capsicum etc. cut into thin strips. Peas/corn - boiled)
Ginger garlic paste - 1/2 tsp
Pepper powder - 1/4 tsp
Chat masala - 1/4 tsp
Biriyani masala - 1/2 tsp
Oil and Salt as per taste


Boil 2-3 cups of water and add the noodles and a pinch of salt and cook for 3-4 minutes or until the noodles is 3/4th cooked. Make sure it is not over cooked, else the noodles will turn mushy when you stir along with the vegetables.

Drain the noodles in a colander and run cold water to remove the excess starch. Toss noodles with a tsp of oil and keep it aside. This is done to prevent the noodles from sticking together. Now boiled noodles is ready

Heat oil in a pan, add the onions and saute for few seconds. Then add the ginger garlic paste and saute until the raw smell goes off. Then all the vegetables, biriyani masala, pepper powder, chat masala and saute for few more seconds on high flame. Once the vegetables are half cooked reduce the flame and add the boiled noodles and stir well. Turn off the flame and keep covered for few seconds until the flavors blend together. Serve and enjoy hot!
