Chinese Bhel

Chinese Bhel is a famous Mumbai roadside dish. Fried noodles are tossed with veggies and sauces to give a nice texture and taste.
As part of swapping ingredients through mail, The second ingredient I received through mail from my fellow blogger Archana is noodles. So, I thought of making this snack which is loved by all ages.

Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 25 minutes
Serves : 4-5


Dry Hakka noodles : 2 cups
Carrot : 2 cut into julienne
Cabbage : 1/2 cup cut into thin strips
Capsicum/ Green bell Pepper: 1/2 cup sliced
Red bell pepper: 1/2 cup sliced
Chili garlic sauce: 1 cup
Tomato ketchup: 2 tablespoons
Cilantro/ coriander leaves: 1/2 chopped to garnish
Spring onions/scallions: 1/2 cup chopped
Salt to taste


Add 6 cups of water in a large saucepan and bring it to a boil. Add salt and noodles and cook for 5 minutes or 75% done.
Drain the water and coat the noodles with some oil.
Heat oil for deep frying and add the noodles and fry till they turn golden. It took me 6 minutes.
Take the noodles into a plate.
Heat oil in a wok and add white part of scallions, cabbage, carrots and sauté for 3 minutes.
Add red and green peppers and sauté for another 3 minutes.
Add fried noodles, ketchup and chili garlic sauce. Toss well and cook for 5 minutes.
Turn off the stove, garnish with scallions and cilantro.
Serve immediately.
