Chinese - for beginners.

Veg. Noodles, Fried Rice with Veg. Manchurian and chilli vinegar.

Chinese food is all about preparation. If you have all veggies chopped up. Noodles boiled and rice steamed - then Chinese is the fastest way to chase your hunger away!

So without further ado - Lets dig in!


Veg. Fried Rice













Ingredients --
2 bowls of boiled Rice, preferably Basmati as that tastes n smells nice! Left overs will be fine!
1 medium sized onion diced into 1cm squares.
1 carrot carrot diced into 1cm squares.
1/2 capsicum diced into 1cm squares
handful of french beans finely chopped
1 small bowl peas (boiled) *optional - only if u r a pea-a-holic*
1 chopped chilli
2-3 table spoons of oil
2-3 table spoons of dark soy sauce
Chilli flakes (optional or how hot u'd like)
Black pepper (Cracked/powder)
Salt to taste

Method --
1. Add oil in a hot pan.
2. Add onions and cook for a minute.
3. Add the capsicum, carrot, beans and peas. Let the vegetables cook for about 4 minutes. Keep tossing so they mix well.
4. Add the boiled rice to the pan. Pour the soy sauce, add black pepper and salt to taste. Now mix the rice and the veggies. (if you mix the rice - then season - then mix again - you'll break the rice too much!)
5. Cook for a minute.

Done!!

TIP:
* Sprinkle white vinegar before serving.
* Sprinkle long bean sprouts over the rice before serving.
* Can add more veggies like snow peas, beans, cabbage and brocolli.

Basic Veg. Fried Noodles

2 bowls of plain boiled Noodles
1 large sized onion chopped into long strings
1 carrot chopped julianne
1 capsicum chopped julianne
1/4 cabbage chopped julianne
handful of french beans chopped diagnally *optional*
2-3 table spoons of oil
2-3 table spoons of dark soy sauce
Black pepper (Cracked/powder)
Salt to taste

Method --
1. Add oil in a hot pan.
2. Add onions and cook for a minute.
3. Add the capsicum, carrot, beans and cabbage. Let the vegetables cook. Keep tossing.
4. Add the boiled noodles to the pan. Pour the soy sauce, add black pepper and salt to taste. Now mix the noodles and the veggies.
5. Cook for a minute.

Same TIPS as for the fried rice above.
*Shall put up recipes for Hookien Noodles with Thai curry in future posts.*

1 large sized onion chopped
1/2 cup spring onions chopped

2. Add onions and cook till the onionc turn slightly golden.
3. Add the ginger and garlic paste and cook for a minute. Add soy sauce to the mix, then add 2 cups water and let the whole mix come to a boil.
4. Add the corn flour and water paste to the boiling mix in the pan and cook till the gravy thickens.
5. Add black pepper, sugar and salt to taste. Garnish with spring onions n put aside.

Manchurian Balls -
1. Mix the chopped carrots, cabbage and beans in a large mixing bowl.
2. Add corn flour, soy sauce, black pepper and salt. Now add water 1/4 cup at a time till you get a thick mix that can be easily rolled into balls.
3. Fry the balls in hot oil.
4. Once all balls are ready, mix them with the gravy and enjoy with noodles and rice!!

TIP:
* Can also dip cauliflower florets in the paste made with just Step 2 of manchurian balls above and fry the cauliflower florets to make 'Cauliflower Manchurian'.

Finally!!!
The simple and tasty garnish for all Chinese dishes - Chilli Vinegar.

Ingredients --
Handful of fresh green/red chillies
1/2 bowl of white vinegar

Method --
Before you start cooking all your Chinese dishes - just chop the chillies into little rings and put them in white vinegar and leave to the side.

Garnish the mix over your rice/noodles and see the *zing* it adds to your Chinese!! :D

I just made and had the Fried Rice and it came out pretty good. Thode rice zayada boil ho gayee thee but that was my fault, but it was still pretty good. I will try the Noodles and the Manchurian next.

I wanted to "Thank You" Nupur for putting such wonderful receipes. I know it takes time and effort to put these and so your efforts are very much appreciated by me and everyone else.

Do you know that more than a third of the sportsbook world's population eat Chinese food daily? Even if it was eaten regularly by some only, Chinese cooking would still be acknowledged as one of the greatest and original cuisines of the world. There is an ever increasing interest in and appreciation of Chinese food in the West. bet nfl The fact that Chinese restaurants are mushrooming in the West is ample testimony to the variety and quality of Chinese food. The culinary appeal of Chinese cusine has taken the Western culture by storm because those who experimented know how good and economical Chinese food can be. sportsbook They discovered how easy it is to create Chinese dishes in their own kitchen and the joy of eating Chinese food can be experienced regularly rather than as an occasional treat. The art of Chinese cooking does not, contrary to popular belief, present any real difficulty as you will soon find out at Chinesefood. All the ingredients in Chinese recipes such as bamboo shoots, bean sprouts, http://www.enterbet.com water chestnuts and so forth can be readily purchased from most general food stores and supermarkets, and even online!
