Red and Green Lo Mein

If you need a meal that will come together in 15 minutes, this is it. The vegetables are chopped in the time it takes to boil the noodles. Flash fry the veggies in a hot wok, throw in the noodles, pour in the sauce, toss, toss, toss… And you are done. I have sprinkled some sesame seeds for crunch but some roasted peanuts would be a great addition too. Serve yourself a bowl and eat it hot off the wok… Bliss…

Recipe :

Ingredients :

  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp spicy ketchup
  • 2 tsp sesame oil
  • 3 tbsp water
  • 1 tbsp hoisin sauce
  • Noodles, cooked and cooled
  • Spring onions, whites and green, chopped
  • Broccoli florets
  • Red Capsicum, sliced
  • Bak choy chopped
  • Coriander leaves, chopped

Method :

  1. Sauce : In a bowl combine soy sauce, hoisin sauce, ketchup, half of the sesame oil and water. Whisk until emulsified and combined.
  2. Heat a wok, till smoking. Add the left over sesame oil. Allow to heat up.
  3. Add the spring onion whites, broccoli, red capsicum, bak choy. Toss till tender crisp and slightly charred.
  4. Add the cooked and cooled noodles. Add the sauce. Toss well till the noodles are coated and hot.
  5. Add the spring onion greens, coriander leaves.
  6. For the noodles to be saucy, one final tip. After adding the coriander leaves add a splash of water, turn off the flame and cover the wok with a lid. Allow to sit for a few minutes. The noodles will literally sauce itself with the steam and will be glazed and shiny.
  7. Top with sesame seeds or peanuts, before serving.

Hi. I am Subalakshmi Sundar. The face behind The Petit Bite. People gathered around a table, good food, great company and fun conversations are the things that make me the happiest. This blog is an attempt to share one part of that with all of you. Great Food. Indian palate is going through a huge culinary journey right now. We are rooted in traditions but want to explore the world cuisines as well. That's what I enjoy the most. A slight Indian twist given to world recipes to suit our palate. You will find easy recipes for busy days, slightly long recipes for days when cooking is therapy and recipes that take time to come together when you want to immerse yourself in to the fine art of cooking. Whatever recipe you choose, I hope it's a pleasure to cook and to eat. Do tag me on Instagram or facebook if you try any. Nothing makes me happier. Happy cooking, y'all.. Much Love, S.
