Chowmein - express lunch

S doesn't like noodles how so ever they are cooked...So I never make noodles at home...But today I've been to Tesco and happened to see "Amoy - Noodles Straight into the Wok"...seemed to be interesting, so purchased a pack and returned home...The pack says "These precooked noodles can be directly added to your Stir-Fry vegetables and delicious chow mein would be ready in minutes...S was not there for lunch today, So I thought it's the best time for me to enjoy an express lunch with noodles...recipe is so simple...


Noodles - 1 cup (pre-cooked according to instructions or store bought cooked noodles)
Grated Carrot - 2 table spoons
Green peas - 1 fistfull (frozen) - Soak in hot water for 3-5min.
Onion - 1/2 thinly sliced
Grated ginger - 1 tsp
Crushed garlic - 1 tsp
Ground black pepper - 1/2 tsp
Soy sauce - 2-3 tsp
Oil - 3 tsp
Salt - to taste


1. Heat oil in a wok. Add the crushed ginger and garlic. Saute for 1min.
2. Add the onions and saute for 2-3min.
3. Now add the grated carrot and green peas (without the water). Cook for 2-3min until the raw smell disappears.
4. Now add salt and ground black pepper powder, soy sauce and stir well.
5. Finally add the cooked noodles and stir well. Cook for 3-4min and turn off the heat.
6.Serve hot.
