Easy Chow Mein Recipe Preparation
✅ Boil the chow Mein. Take a pan, add water and salt, and let it boil. Add dry chow mein to it. Boil till it gets tender.
✅ Take the strainer; put the chow mein in that, so that extra water will remove. Now wash it with cold water.
✅ Put some oil on that and keep it aside till we prepare the mixture for it.
✅ Take a pan, put 2 tablespoon oil, and heat it. Spread evenly oil in the pan.
✅ Add onions, stir it. Add the carrot and cook it for 2 minutes.
✅ Continuously stir it, as entire cooking is done at high flame.
✅ Now add capsicum, spring onion, and cabbage and stir it. Keep in mind that you do not need to entirely cook the vegetables. Semi-cooked vegetables are required in the chow mein.
✅ Now add noodles, 2 tablespoon vinegar, soy sauce, and chilli sauce.
✅ Add salt, black pepper, and Ajinomoto and mix well.
✅ Stir continuously and mix them well.
✅ The chow mein is ready to serve.
✅ Street vendors cook it on high flame to give it a smoky flavour, this is a reason why we cook it on high flame, although we don’t have that burner to cook the chow mien, still we try to make it similarly
✅ Ajinomoto is optional.
✅ Don’t overcook the vegetables. Semi-cooked vegetables will give the crunchy flavour to it.
✅ Don’t add oil while boiling; never use oil for dry chow mien. Oil is only used for fresh pasta and chow Mein as it tends to get stick with each other.
