Vegetable Chowmein- South Indian Style

Today,I thought of preparing chowmein with lots of vegetables but with a different style- the South Indian style with the famous 'Tarka' of curry leaves and usage of coconut milk.
Even I was wondering about the outcome.It was truly wonderful - A sea change- from the streets of Beijing to the God's own country.

8.Salt to taste

9.Black pepper (fresh crushed)- ½ tsp

10.Mustard seeds- ¼ tsp (1 generous pinch)

11.Red chili (whole)- ½ , seeds removed.

1.Add the Noodles in enough boiling water.

2.Please make sure that they do not get over cooked.

3.Take a strainer and strain the Noodles through cold water 2-3 times and drain water.

4.Add few drops of oil to the noodles and mix well to avoid sticking. Set it aside.

5.Heat oil in a deep pan; add the mustard seeds, red chili and the curry leaves.
