Noodles You Must Make

Is there anyone who doesn’t like noodles? It’s the best snack for evening and it’s super easy to make. To be honest, I didn’t like noodles myself. I wasn’t a fan of Chinese cuisine, apparently because I used to find the food sweet which was because of some restaurants we had dined in, that changed after having authentic Chinese, I started loving it. The soups, chicken gravy, chopsuey, noodles and what not. I would prefer noodles with some gravy. When I tried this recipe first, I knew it was perfect with noodles. So the next time I made it, I added noodles lastly with the gravy and mixed it all. The recipe credit goes to – www.yummytummyaarthi.com
