I simply love this recipe. My 8 yr old daughter tried it for the first time and she said it was the best dish she had ever tasted. Even my mil who doesnt like anything sweet in savoury dishes loves this recipe.

Yet again a perfect recipe by Tarla Dalal. The perfect combination of veggies alongwith boiled noodles and fried noodles to add that crunch to the dish. A more wholesome and satisfying dish to add that different touch to normal chienese meal of noodles. A sure shot winner which dont fail to impress the guests.

Although I find American Chopsuey a rather unhealthy dish due to all the fried noodles, I could not resist trying this recipe. The aroma of the fried noodles and the veggies is very appetizing! The balance between the crunchy noodles and the boiled ones is perfect.
