A complete meal! a perfect combination of all nutrients contributed by the vegetables and starch from the noodles. Flavoured with hoisin sauce, this chow mein brings out all the authentic flavours of chinese cooking. Chow mein is a style of preparing noodles separately and then topping them with a choice of ingredients. Here we have used carrots, baby corn and mushrooms.
