No Chinese menu can ever be complete without noodles. Perhaps it wouldn’t wrong to say that noodles are to Chinese cuisine what pasta is to an Italian meal! I suggest you use rice noodles instead of refined flour (maida) ones which lack fibre and other nutrients.

However, to enhance the health quotient of rice noodles I have added veggies like capsicum, spring onions, bean sprouts and carrots. Remember that they are, after all, rice noodles – so relish this as an occasional treat in small portions.

Loved the balance of varied veggies and bean sprouts with the noodles. Not very difficult to make, this recipe pairs well with a bowl of soup.
