Chicken Chow Mein is an excellent Chinese noodle dish. The dish is nice, luscious and made with a mix of vegetables and noodles cooked together seasoned with a sauce mixture consisting of chicken stock, salt, sugar, pepper, soya sauce, oyster sauce, red chilli sauce and vinegar which gives an equal and even flavouring to the dish. Chow Mein Chow mein is typically a Chinese food that contains fried noodles.


There are many varieties having different names in certain locations. Chow mein dish consists of fried noodles (crispy or not) with vegetables, small pieces of meat, stir fried and covered with a soy-based gravy. The crispy version of chow mein noodles are made from egg noodles which have been fried and use a base for chow mein or crumbled as a topping over vegetables.


Traditionally, Chow mein often contains stir-fried vegetables and sometimes meat along with the noodles flavoured with soy sauce or some other flavouring is added. Generally before preparing the chow mein, the meat is also marinated in soy sauce, pepper and little salt which gives a nice flavouring and keeps the meat tender and juicy. Those who like more authentic flavours into the chow mein, can also add in some fish sauce and oyster sauce.


Every cuisine prepares the chow mein in their own style, giving a unique taste. But overall, the recipe is influenced from the Chinese cuisine. In India, chow mein was introduced by the Chinese who settled/ migrated in Kolkata. It is usually prepared with Hakka or with gravy. Vegetable Chow Mein is the Indian variant catering to most vegetarians that consists noodles with cabbage, colourful bell peppers, beans, carrots, onions and spring onions.


In New Delhi region, chow mein can sometimes include paneer with the mixture of noodles and vegetables. Meat used is mostly chicken. There are a lot of variations that you can give in making the noodles. Noodles are eaten hot or cold, steamed, stir-fried, deep fried, boiled or served in a soup. They are excellent source of protein and extremely high in complex carbohydrates. Often we are confused with the difference between a ‘lo mein’ and ‘chow mein noodles’.


There are two variations in preparing these recipes. In case of low mein, it involves tossing of boiled noodles in the wok and then mixing them with other ingredients during the final stage of cooking which helps the noodles to absorb more flavours from the sauce while cooking of Chow mein, the ingredients are stir-fried and then served over the noodles that have been prepared separately. Ultimately however it is cooked; we love eating noodles and are one of the most liked dishes by most of us, especially the kids. Noodle recipes Kids love eating noodles and if you really give different variations to it, than its just a delight to their taste buds, eating new flavourful and exotic noodles dishes.

I never laughed so hard!!! The dish looked delicious and really simple to make. The funny part was that our chef took a taste of the noodles, his eyes lit up and he couldn't stop eating! lol He probably should have had a little something beforeha
