Foodles noodles

Foodles is from the brand horlicks and they claim that there is no artificial colors or preservatives in it and that it is fortified with iron and calcium.

This time around I wanted to try making it the 'Desi' style. 

The big packet has two set of noodles and two taste maker packets.

Foodles Packet - 1
     Sunflower Oil - 2 tbsp
     Cumin Seeds - ½ tsp
     Mustard Seeds - 1/2 tsp
     Red Onion - 1 Large
     Green Chili - 3
     Tomato-1 Large
     Ginger garlic paste - 1/4 tsp
     Red Chili Powder - 1/2 tsp
     Coriander Powder-1/2 tsp
     Turmeric Powder - 1/4 tsp
     Garam Masala Powder - 1/4 tsp
     Salt- To Taste
     Coriander Leaves - to garnish
     Carrot - ¼ cup [diced]
     Beans - ¼ cup [chopped]
     Capsicum - 1/2 [chopped] [optional]

In a pan, add the oil, let it heat and add the mustard seeds. When it crackles add the cumin seeds. Next add the onion and saute till translucent. Then add the tomato, green chilli and the ginger garlic paste. Saute really well till the tomato is all mashed up. Add the vegetables, pour about a tablespoon of water, lower the flame and cook till the vegetables are soft. 

Then add the taste maker and mix well. Also add the red chilli powder, coriander powder, turmeric powder and the garam masala and saute till the oil separates. 

Add about 4 cups of hot water to the mix and add in the noodles. Cook till they are done.

Garnish with coriander leaves and serve hot.
