A delightful preparation of crispy noodles served with vegetables and a tangy sauce. This recipe is not an authentic chinese one, but an invention of chinese restaurateurs in western countries. One of the literal translations of this recipe means 'savoury mess'. Serve this dish as a snack or One Meal Dinner or as a side dish with a Chinese meal.
