Rain Gods are kind enough to shower the land. Yes the weather has turned to be great! I love rains.
From childhood rains are for being at home, laying besides the window with my sis and brother giggling and chatting, making paper boats, collecting the rain water(the rain water is the tastiest one I had ;)) in small vessels and what not ?
Amma used to warm us with nice hot pakodas, bajjis, chips and tea. Those days we were not familiar with soups and thus they were never in our menu (other than the weekly mutton soup or prawn soup episode).
At home myself and amma were the noodle lovers and others won’t favour them neither as a snack nor as a meal. But for us its just that good comfort food. Many of my blogging friends have blogged about noodle soup and I was so very tempted to try them at home but something or the other will stop me for cooking just for me and amma.
These rains were the perfect season to have them and I made it last weekend. Top Ramen Curry noodles is our favorite brand and I used it here.
Top Ramen Curry Noodles – 2 packs
Thinly sliced vegetables – 1 Cup (I used carrots, capsicum, beans)
Onions – 1 (thinly sliced)
Tomatoes – 1 chopped
ginger garlic paste – 1/4 tea spoon
Salt to taste
Water – 5 Cups
Peanut oil – 1 tea spoon
Chilli powder – 1/2 tea spoon
A handful of chopped sping onions (the green part)
How to make it?
Heat oil in a pan and add the ginger garlic paste and fry till they turn golden. Add the onions and saute for 2 mins. Add the tomatoes and cook till they turn mushy. Add the vegetables and saute for 2 mins. Add the chilli powder and saute for one more minute. Add the water, 1/4 tea spoon salt and the seasoning from the two packs of the noodles and mix well. Cover and bring to a boil. Within 5 mins the veggies will get cooked. Now the water will be in a rolling boil. Add the noodles broken to the pan. Cover and cook until the noodles is done. Add the chopped green onions and Serve hot!
The kids went to bed early and myself and amma had it with a nice chat sitting near the window. The showers were stopped then but the weather is crisp and chill and its simply perfect !
Note : If you want to add salt check once the noodles are done and add if required. If you want it spicy add freshly ground black pepper in the end before serving.
