  2. Hi Hetal & Anuja,

I have tried making so many things like jalebis, chicken biryani, methi malai matar and much more. My family loves the taste. Thank you so much.


  3. YUMMY-DELICIOUS!!!!!!!!!!

    You ladies present the recipes very well. Your lipstick color is pretty. Which brand do you ladies use?

  4. Hi Guys,

    Love the recipe – but have been trying to find the egg noodles you use in the video. But to much frustration, haven’t been able to find the right noodles to cook with. Any suggestions?Brand name? Stores which I can try? Where did you buy the one you use in the video?


  5. hi,
    thx a lot of for the recipe. turned out delicious but quiet dry as compared to yours 🙁 any idea what went wrong?

  6. Despite the onion, green peppers, and especially garlic, also, the little corns were iffy for me. The combonation of ingredients were so tasty, even my picky bf loved it! Reheating the meal in the microwave was dry, and not so great; any ideas for reheating?

    1. Hi EvoNymph,

      Heating noodles is always a challenge. You can try to sprinkle a little water over the noodles and cover them with a damp paper towel before microwaving. This will create steam and help with the dryness.

  7. Hi Anuja & Hetal,

  11. Wow, what can I say! You both are too good. I show my wife watching recipes on your website but as she is in India at the moment, I thought let’s make chinese noodles but didn’t how to make it. I followed your recipe and the dish was delicious.

    Keep up the good work.


  12. Very nice video on chinese noodles. Guys.. I was wondering whether SALT is needed in this preparation or not. Or does this Hoisin sauce have SALT content in it. Bit confused on the SALT part of this one.

    Really appreciate your mouth watering Chinese Noodles. Would like to see more..

  13. I recently purchased a wok after viewing this video. I just made these noodles using a 12 oz. bag of Asian egg noodles. I followed the recipe exactly and only added additional soy sauce. They were delicious! I’m glad I found your website and will definitely be back. Thank you so much for sharing!

  14. Yum!! I have tried stir fried noodles before but could never get the actual taste… This is amazing!
    I added pics to the final product I made on FB and many asked me for the recipe, I have directed them to your site…
    Also following you on FB!! Trying out a few other recipes from your website today!

  15. Hi,

    this is going to sound really silly but where did you buy your spoons from? im from england and we have really crap ones that take of the non stick from the bottom on the pan, or plastic ones that melt! I see you are using rubber ones? please could you know if there is a specific name for them and if i could purchase them anywhere online.


    1. Hi Jenna,
      These spoons we got from a dollar store about 5 years ago and have not found anything like them again 🙁 There is no name or any information on them either and if we ever find them again, we will be buying about 50 😉
      Sorry, for being no help 🙁
      TIP: try looking for spatulas that are heat resistant (so they don’t melt)

    1. Hi Jessica,
      Chicken breast works well for the noodles – they cook fast and hold shape well. For curries, we suggest chicken thighs and legs 🙂

  16. for this particular serving amount, if i wanted to add chicken… how much chicken would i add?? cups, pounds??
    and i didnt understand when you said cook veggies and noodles first then add chicken?? right?

  17. Hi,
    If I wanted to add chicken to the recipe, should i cook it separately or along with the veggies themselves?

    1. Hi Parul,

      You should cook the chicken first and pull it out of the pan. If you like, you can season it with a little soy sauce. In the same pan, you can cook the veggies and add it the chicken after they have cooked.

  18. I made noodles as per your receipe they are really good. My question is why we use vinegar in noodles?

    I found rice vinegar(white) in store. Is white vinegar is same as rice vinegar?

    1. Vinegar is used in most of the Chinese cooking…the vinegar gives a hint of sourness to the dish which is really subtle.

      Rice vinegar and White Vinegar are different, Rice vinegar has a little sweetness to it. You can use Rice vinegar but you might have to a add a little more than you would white Vinegar.

      Hope that helps!

  19. I was just wondering, but if you have leftovers of this would it taste bad if you were to reheat them again? I know some recipes I’ve used where I’ve reheated the noodles or rice and it doesn’t taste very good at all.

  20. wonderful recipe !

    one question ! if some people don’t eat garlic and onions.. do you have any suggetion for that what to replace it? I know it wont give the same flavour but is there anything in your idea would make it excellent even without using onion/garlic?

    pls. let me know..thankyou for your great support !

    1. Hi Yogita,

      If you are making these noodles for people who normally do not eat garlic/onions, they probably will not miss the flavor too much. The ginger, soy sauce and chili sauce (as well as other flavorings) do provide quite a bit of flavor.

  21. In the indian version of Chinese noodles, Ajino-Motto (Or MSG)powder is used which is not available in US.

    With the Ajino-Motto powder, the flavor of noodles is simply gr8.

  22. why do you find Sesame oil, Minced garlic, Minced ginger, baby corn, black pepper, soy susce, white vinger, hosin sauce, red cilli sacue and if you know please can you give me the stores name.

  23. Hi,

    I just watched your video and it says that I have to cook the noodles as per the instructions on the packet.But,unfortunately there are no instructions on the egg noodles packet that I purchased.So,I would like to know how much of water should I use and bring to boil to cook a 500gms noodle packet?

  24. Hi wanted to know which soy sauce do you use? i bought the light soy sauce but somehow the noodles always stay white in colour. doesnt really taste the indo-chinese way. can you help me?

    1. Kikkoman makes a good soy sauce. Low sodium soy sauce is great if you have health issues (eg high blood pressure, etc) but the problem can be that it’s flavor is not as salty. If you don’t have health issues, you can try the regular version and see if it works for you.

      Also, the other sauces such as chili sauce and stir-fry sauce should also help with the color.

      1. Hetal, Anuja

        Can you please suggest a good Soy sauce brand and where to purchase it from? I have been trying Indo-Chinese recipes with Ching’s soy sauce purchased from the Indian grocery stores and I am not happy with the results

  25. I love your emails. they are very helpfull. But I need to know #1 How do I get a show me the curry apron? And #2 How can I share this email service w/ a friend ?
    She is trying to go vegitarian , and you have so many great recipys for that.
    Thanks again, Carol

  26. Hi Hetal and Anuja,

    Thanks for posting this wonderful recipe. I was waiting for a chinese noodles recipe and when it’s here, I am unable to view it. Is it just me or is there some problem in viewing? The video just won’t start for me. Can anyone else view it?

      1. It would only taste like crap if you don’t know how to cook. The recipe was actually great — I just used some different veggies because that’s what was in my fridge. The one thing I would mention is to NOT put the oil in the pan on high heat… this burns the garlic/ginger. Try low to medium heat at first and once you start adding the onions, increase the heat to med-high…. otherwise, YUM!
