Soupy Noodles

Soupy Noodles
Soupy Noodles
Its winter and we generally consume lot of soups. Vegetable Soups are generally filling but at times it is just not enough. To make it more filling I add noodles at times to make it as a one pot dish. Vegetables & Mung beans are sautéed and cooked in soup stock. Thick rice noodles is then immersed in the boiling stock and cooked. The dish is finally garnished with fried tofu cubes.



I generally try various vegetarian noodles masala mixes in Singapore but I never post them as it is only available in Singapore and not in all places. I happened to get Ching’s Hakka noodles masala while shopping in Little India and thought I must try for a different dish apart from regular hakka noodles. It came out very well for the soupy noodles. After couple of trials I thought I must post it. This is widely available in India hence getting this masala should not be a problem. You can however use any hakka noodles masala.
Noodles can be any thick noodles. Like any other noodles recipe this dish must be cooked and served immediately. I have however given the alternative corrections to be made if cooked in advance. You may refer to my soup stock recipe given in this link - Soup Stock.
This recipe is absolutely filling and healthy dinner choice.

Notes:
-          Soaked green beans can be replaced with sprouted beans
-          Noodle must be a thick noodles.
-          If the noodles is not served immediately the soupy nature will be lost and it would be very thick. In that case add some more soup stock and make it soupy. The taste in this case would become less spicy.
-          The hakka noodles masala I used required the measurement mentioned in the ingredients. You may alter according to your taste.
