So do you like mushrooms? And noodles too? Then you have landed on a right page. But if you simply hate any of those items then this is not a place for you. Because here we will talk about mushroom noodles that too a lot of vegetables for a perfect dinner. Okay, mushroom haters still, can continue reading this because you can try this food without mushrooms if you wish.
Though there are many people across the world who prefer noodles in dinner but in India, there are many people who do not prefer noodles in dinner. They will mostly prefer rice or roti/naan/paratha etc in dinner. If you are at the same stage, I mean, you like noodles but still, you do not prefer noodles in dinner then don’t worry because it is not a big deal, after all, you like noodles and mushroom then you can try this for a change or you can try this in lunch too, haha.
I used to call this food as chow mein rather than noodles. Though all chow mein is actually noodles but still not all noodles are not chow mein. Little confusing? But yes, all noodles are not chow-mein and actually, wheat flour made noodles are called as mein and rice flour made noodles are called as FUN. Fun? No, I did not mean it as enjoyment, its name is FUN. Chow is actually a method of cooking, so when you cook wheat flour made noodles (mein) such a way that outside of noodles becomes crispy then it is called chow if it is not crispy because you did not fry it properly rather you just toss it with other ingredients then it is called LO. So little crispy wheat flour made noodles are chow-mein. In that sense, you can call it as mushroom chow-mein instead of mushroom noodles but simply just avoid all such confusions and leave it for you whether you will make it crispy or soft. But as here I used wheat flour made noodles (mein) so it is either chow-mein or Lo mein.
Here wheat flour made noodles, button mushrooms, carrot, capsicum, onion, green beans, garlic, green chillies, soy sauce, tomato puree, vinegar, roasted cumin powder, red chilli powder, dry mango powder, garlic powder, salt, oil etc were used to make this delicious mushroom noodles with vegetables.
