In my house my younger sister always wants to eat this veg chowmein. Actually the story behind how chow mein was introduced to my younger sister is, when she was 4 year old my grandpa took her to the garden to play with her friends.
The garden is situated next to our house and it was surrounded with lots of street food sellers. A shop space in front of that garden was empty. I had never seen a shop in that place since my childhood.
And that day when my grandfather and younger sister went to the garden, she saw a man making veg chow mein at that place. She was very happy to see the chow mein and she insisted on eating it from our grandfather. From that day, she started eating food every day, so my aunt started making chow mein at home.

Process to make veg chowmein
- Step 1:- First take noodles. (here you can use egg noodles, we’re using plain noodles). Add water, salt and oil in a pan. Let water come to a rolling boil. Now boil noodles on high flame for 5 minutes. Noodles should be springy but not too soft.
- Step 2:- Then turn the gas flame off and strain the water immediately from noodles and remove off excess water by shaking the sieve. Now add 1 tsp of oil and toss the noodles (this process will prevent noodles from sticking together). Leave noodles in a sieve and keep it aside.
- Step 3:- Now heat 1 tbsp cooking oil in the pan. Let the oil heat up and add chopped ginger and garlic in a hot oil. Fry them well for 1 30 seconds on high flame. Stir it continuously, it will prevent ginger and garlic from burning.

- Step 5:- Onion and carrot are softened now so add capsicum and fry until it will get the same texture. Fry for 30 seconds and add cabbage in this veggies mixture. You will need to cover the pan to cook the cabbage. So cover the pan and cook this mixture for 1 minute.
- Step 6:- Now add spring onion and fry it well. Spring onion does not need much time to get the soft texture..
- Step 7:- Add salt and sugar and give a good mix to this veggie mixture. Let this all cook for 1 minute.
- Step 8:- After one minute add boiled noodles in this mixture. Mix this well and then add black pepper powder and mixture of sources which includes (soya sauce, green chili sauce, red chili sauce, tomato ketchup & vinegar). Now mix this all together for 30 seconds.

When I went to hostel for my higher studies. In my hostel, we used to have a food dish list for everyday basis. In breakfast two types of food, in lunch roti, sabji, dal, rice, salad, achar & papad and in dinner, rice roti, curry, sukhi sanji (dry veggie), achar, papad and salad. We also used to have milk at night. Hostel was very good and the food was also good too.
Every Saturday in the hostel, we used to eat a plate of noodles for dinner. In this dish, there used to be all kinds of Chinese food eg., fried rice, noodles, Manchurian, chutney, soybean chili and soup.
Me and friends. we all love to eat that thali. In this thali my favorite item was noodles. The cook of our hostel used to cook delicious noodles. Even the chutney he used to make was truly delicious.
In the monsoon season, the hostel cook uncle used to make soup with this Chinese thali and that soup was made with different types of veggies. That soup was healthy & delicious too. This is my golden memory for my favorite noodles. Hostel days was really golden days for me.
