How to make street style Chow Mein?

First, take some noodles. You can use any brand of noodles. Here I used Hakka noodles.

Now boil the water on high flame.

After that add noodles and cook them until the noodles are cooked. Here I used quick 6-minute aata noodles. and it takes only 6 minutes. So the boiling time depends on the noodles.

(for this noodle, boil the water. Turn off the heat. Add noodles and cover it for 5 to 7 minutes. After 7 minutes it is done).

Now remove it from the water and wash it with cold water.

Now take a pan. Add oil. Heat it for 30 to 40 seconds. Then add chopped garlic. Saute it for 20 to 30 seconds on medium flame.

Then add sliced carrots. Then add capsicum.

Add salt and cabbage. Stir it for 20 to 30 seconds on high flame.  Do not overcook the veggies.

Now add cooked noodles. mix well.

Then add vinegar. Add soy sauce. Add red chili sauce and tomato ketchup.

Mix well. Turn off the heat.

Chow mein is ready to serve.
