Basic Chowmein

Egg Chowmein with soya chunks and veggies

This had to be the first recipe I posted, 'cause I remember wanting to make chowmein like my mother made to feed our post-school hunger sessions. She made the most amazing jal-khabar (snacks/small meals) to nourish her active kids.

Veg chowmein with oyster sauce

‎1. Boil water, add chowmein, (green beans too if you are using them). Some people add a spoonful of vegetable oil to avoid stickiness. Drain the boiled chowmein in a strainer, pour cold water if necessary.
2. Add chili oil/peanut oil in another pan.
3. Add grated cabbage, carrots, green peas, celery, parboiled green beans, Baby spinach, romaine lettuce or other crunchy vegetables (a packets of frozen vegetables might be handy but freshly cut vegetables are tastier)
4. Add 1 tsp oyster sauce, 3 tsp soy sauce. Cover and cook.
5. Can add Chinese salt substitute (I like granulated mushroom bouillon)  & cracked pepper to taste.
7. Add the drained chowmein. Add white vinegar/lime juice, soy sauce, MSD substitute.
8. Mix the noodles with the veggies

Can add soya chunks boiled in salt water or chicken breasts or Chinese sausage or scrambled eggs.

Serve hot with your fav sauce. :)
