Malay style Noodles

Friday night 8:30 PM-Dinner Time

Me to husband: I prepared the noodles specially for you after coming back from work. So you feed Rishi(son) tonight.
Husband: Don't tell me you prepared it for me. You made it for your Noodles event..
Me: Its not Noodles event. Its "Its a Vegan World-Malaysian" event.

I ended up feeding the son. To my relief, he relished the noodles and ate in just 5 minutes.

I saw the noodles recipe in MalaysianRecipes website..I modified the recipe to make it less spicy and vegan. It came out very nice, different from the usual soy sauce-vinegar stuff. Spinach and green peas makes it healthy too.


Noodles: 200 gms(I used Hakka Noodles) Olive Oil: 2 tbsp(Refined oil is also OK) Garlic: 1 tsp(finely chopped) Tomato Ketchup: 2 tbsp Tomato Puree: 1 tbsp Green Peas: 1/3 cup(cooked) Spinach/Palak: 1 cup(cleaned, chopped into small pieces) Pepper Powder: 1/2 tsp Water: 1/4 cup(or more if needed) Salt to taste

1. Cook noodles as per package instruction and keep aside. 2. Add oil in a big pan/kadai and saute garlic. 3. Stir in soinach and cook for 1 minute. 4. Mix in cooked noodles, ketcup and puree until coated.(2 minutes) 5. Add water to keep the mixture moist. 6. Add salt and pepper powder and mix. 7. Continue to cook stirring continuously for 5 minutes. 8. Add the peas and mix until combined. 9. Remove from heat and serve hot with tomato ketchup.

This is my entry to Vaishali's IAVW-Malaysian event.

On a different note, here is a picture of few things I bought during our recent trip to Srirangapatna.
