There are some foods that need very little introduction, and more over that; very minimal time to cook and be set for dinner. Sometimes mom made her very own instant version of noodles, which was the best ever. At home we all are a great fan of noodles. I am sure most of us would have a very special love towards the Indo - Chinese food that still hold a very very special place in our favorite food menu list.
We have noodle / rice noodles at least twice a month for dinner. Its kind of easy for me to make and also enjoy having it with my fav combo - noodles and tomato sauce.My husband being an Egg lover , enjoys his noodle bowl with lots of egg in it. But this certain day , i had no eggs nor chicken to be added in it , and my noodles turned to be a Veggie Noodles, nevertheless it was as tasty , but just missing out some eggiee in it.
