Nepali style chowmein

After momo, chowmein is one of the most popular dishes in Nepal. I have been cooking it for a while but getting the right texture and taste took me a while. Now I am happy with it so I am sharing the recipe here.

Ingredient

  • 1 pack cooked ready to eat Singaporean noodle (you can use any noodle as you like)
  • 200gm thigh fillets
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped Ginger
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped Garlic
  • 1 onion thinly sliced
  • 1 medium carrot thinly sliced
  • ¼ cabbage thinly sliced
  • ½ capsicum thinly sliced
  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • 1 tablespoon chili sauce
  • 1 tablespoon tomato sauce / ketchup
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon vinegar
  • 1/2 tsp pepper powder(chili powder optional)
  • 1/2 cup spring onions chopped
  • Coriander to garnish
  • Salt as required

Method

  • Boil the thigh fillets for 10 minutes and let it cool. Slice it thinly.
  • Heat oil and add boiled chicken and cook until it is brown. Season with salt and pepper. Keep it aside

  • In the same pan, heat oil and add finely chopped ginger and finely chopped garlic. Then add sliced onion and sauté it for a couple of minutes until the onions turn translucent.

  • Now add cabbage, carrots, capsicum and cook for a few minutes. Do not overcook the vegetables.

  • Then add chili sauce, tomato ketchup, soy sauce and vinegar.

  • Add the cooked noodles and mix it well with the vegetables and the sauces.

  • Now add the cooked chicken, salt, pepper and spring onions and turn off the heat.

  • Serve hot and garish with coriander.

Take care,
