Vegetarian Chowmein

Indian Chinese has evolved into a separate cuisine with dishes that have become international favourites though some of them will can certainly not be found anywhere in China. I dare anyone to find Gobhi Manchurian in Manchuria. A favourite Indian Chinese disof mine is Vegetarian Chowmein.


(Serves 4)

Hakka noodles 150 g
Carrots 2, peeled and cut into thin strips
Cabbage 1 medium, sliced
Beans 5, cut on the slant and sliced
Onion 1 large, sliced
Capsicum 1 large, sliced
Vegetable oil 5 tbsps
Ching’s Secret Vegetable Chowmein Masala 1 packet
Salt to taste
Soya sauce 1 tbsp
Green chilli sauce 4 tbsps
Red chilli sauce 1 tbsp
Vinegar 2 tbsps


Boil the noodles in salted water till cooked. I use Ching’s Secret brand and follow the instructions on the packet. The noodles turn out perfect every time.

Pour oil into a heated wok. When the oil is well heated, add the onions. Add all the vegetables and stir fry on high heat for two minutes.

Add the salt and sauces.

Add the cooked noodles and Ching’s Secret masala and toss well.

Serve hot.
