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.
