American Chopsuey

Hey Do not get confused with the name! Its an Indo chinese cuisine. Noodles, topped up with a rich sauce and bulls eye adds extra appeal to the dish.

  1. Noodles- 200 gm,take as you need
  2. Egg- 2
  3. Cut vegetables- 1 1/2cups(carrot,capsicum,cabbage,mushroom,cauliflower)
  4. Ginger- 2 inch piece,finely cut
  5. Garlic- 4 pods,minced
  6. Onion- 1 medium,thinly sliced
  7. Cornflour- 2 teaspoon
  8. Vegetable/chicken stock- 1 cup
  9. Minced chicken- 1/2 cup
  10. Salt- 1-2 teaspoon, as required
  11. Pepper powder- 1-2 teaspoon,as required
  12. Tomato sauce- 2 tablespoon
  13. Chilly sauce- 2 teaspoon
  14. Soya sauce- 1 teaspoon
  15. Water
  16. Oil- for frying noodles
  1. Cook the noodles as per instructions, drain water and keep aside.
  2. Heat oil in a deep bottomed pan and fry noodles little by little till crisp. Do not make it too solid.Drain oil and set aside
  3. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a pan
  4. Add the minced chicken pieces and fry for 2 mins.
  5. Add the onions,ginger,garlic and saute till soft.
  6. Add the cut vegetables and saute till they get cooked , but remains crispiness
  7. Meanwhile mix the corn flour with chicken stock, all sauces, salt and pepper to a fine consistency.
  8. Add this to the cooked vegetable chicken mix.
  9. Add 1/4 cup water,mix well
  10. Cook till the sauce attains a thick consistency.
  11. Just taste it and add more salt or pepper if required, I added 1 teaspoon more pepper.
  12. Now heat a non stick pan and make bulls eye with egg, salt and pepper.
  13. Bring the fried noodles to a serving plate , top them with the prepared sauce and throw the bulls eye on top. Serve hot!.
Enjoy the Indo Chinese delicacy. Eggetarians and avoid mean and opt for vegetable stock, Vegans, just do the same and pull out form bulls eye part!. Kids would love it. My husband just loves the dishes. Please don’t over fry the noodles, since it would become difficult to mix with the sauce. Also you can use any noodles of your choice, I used the brown ones here. Enjoy!
