Masala Noodles

It's been a long time since I last blogged. All with Ramazan, university, marking papers etc, there was little time to come here and share something. Masala noodles is a Pakistani version of the traditional Chinese dish.

It is very much adaptable to our taste. Spices can be adjusted and others can be added to enhance the taste.

My recipe is loosely adapted from Foodilicious on Facebook. Next time , I will avoid cumin. Much that I love cumin, it just didn't go well with the noodles. Carrots were not in season, they would impart a beautiful color to the dish.



1 medium onion, chopped finely
1 tomato, chopped finely
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp ginger paste
1 cup cabbage ,diced
2 capsicums, diced
200 gm chicken , boiled, shredded
500 gm (or as required) noodles, boiled
1/4 tsp Turmeric powder
1/4 tsp Corriander powder 
Red chilli powder, as required
1 tsp soya sauce
2 tbsp tomato ketchup

Salt, as required

Oil - As required

Heat oil in a saucepan, saute onions. When they lose there color, add cumin and stir fry. When aromatic, add tomatoes, turmeric, chilli, salt and corriander powder. Add a little water and cook covered on low heat until onions are almost dissolved, around 15 minutes. When all water has evaporated, add soya sauce and ketchup and mix. Add veggies, chicken and noodles. Toss to coat thoroughly with the prepared masala. Serve warm. You can sprinkle with sliced spring onions.

Happy cooking!!!
