For a change, how about Chinese recipes for this week, as being Thanksgiving week and most families celebrate with their kids and friends. There is no doubt that all kids will definitely love the Chinese foods especially the noodles, for them it’s fun to play around with that and I guess you don’t need to force to have than you struggle with feeding a rice or other food varieties. If you don’t want to add the Shrimp in it, you could exclude it and make it out of your desired meat, if vegetarian then you could add the vegetables like carrot, beans and cauliflower too, however the making remains the same.

I even personally love noodles, last week when we visited to a Thai restaurant, we had it, but that was spaghetti. There is a difference between a noodle and spaghetti both in look wise and the size too. Here I used the spaghetti as it gives you extra flavor as well as the taste, however be careful when you are getting it from the shop, as there are lot of varieties, just go for the “plain spaghetti” as some may have with flavors and soups too. Let’s move to the Indian way of making a “Shrimp Noodles” .I am sure you may absolutely love IT!!!!

  • Fresh or frozen Shrimps: ½ lb/ ¾ Kg
  • Chinese Egg Noodles – 1 Medium sized packet.
  • Onion – 1

  • Marinate the Shrimp with turmeric, chili powder and ginger garlic paste and keep for at least ½ hour.
  • In a pan, heat water, when it bubbles up add the noodles and cook until the noodles is cooked well, drain the water and shower the noodles in cold water just for it to get separate and keep aside.
  • In a separate pan,heat oil, add onions, add the cooked vegetables and add the eggs, scramble them well.Stir continuously without burying them at the bottom.
  • Add all the powders in the ingredients, and then add the marinated shrimps and cook in low heat until the masala gets well into the shrimp and even the shrimp should also cook well.
  • After the shrimp is cooked well, add the soya,chili sauces,red pepper crushed and give a stir again.
  • Add the chopped spring onions and add the cooked noodles and stir well to mix everything well.
  • Squeeze the lemon to it and serve hot with ketchup.

"If you are adding cooked shrimp then no need to keep stirring.

You can add your desired vegetables if needed to this.

Adjust the spice powders/sauces as per your spice level."
