Spicy Shrimp Noodles


Hello Everyone!!

I love my sauces way too much as much as I like shrimps. My pantry is never out of the stock on both of these. For me the food has to be equally visually appealing as its taste, else it is hard for me to even have it. This is my go to recipe on the days when I am exhausted after a day's of hard work and don't have much energy to come up with something good. It is a quick to make and tasty at the same time. Please enjoy the visual treat and I hope you like it.

Ingredients:

Thai noodles:                         1/2 packet (8 oz.)
Onion:                                     1/2 diced in cubes (mine is red onion)
Carrot:                                     1/2 grated
Shrimp:                                    8-9 deveined
Spring Onion:                         1 chopped
Red bell pepper:                     1/2 diced in cubes
Capsicum:                               1/2 diced in cubes
Green chilies:                         
Ginger:                                     1 tbsp. chopped (it’s good to have them in julienne)
Spicy tomato ketchup:         2 tbsp. (I took the Maggi brand, you can take whatever you have, also lower the amount if you like less spicy)
Spicy Green chili sauce:        1 tbsp
Soya sauce:                             1 and 1/2 tbsp.
White Vinegar:                       1 and 1/2 tbsp.
Oil:                                           2 tbsp.
Salt:                                          to taste 


Method:

 1.    Take a deep pan, fill it with water and bring it to boil. Once the water starts boiling, drop the noodles in it with 1 tsp of oil and 1 tsp of salt to avoid the sticking of noodles and bring it to boil again.
2.      Meanwhile, take a wok and add oil. Once it gets heated, add the ginger and green chilies. Stir fry it. Then add Onion and stir fry it till it becomes translucent.
3.    Take a peek at the noodles. Once they look transparent, take them out in a strainer under running cold water and keep it aside. It helps to each strand separate.
4.     Let’s move to wok now. Once the onion looks done, add shrimp, capsicum, red bell pepper and stir fry for 2 minutes. Then add the vinegar and fry it for a minute again. I like my veggies to be crunchy so I don't fry them a lot. If you like veggies on the soft and mushy side, you might have to fry it for more time.
5.      Add carrot and spring onion. Fry for half minute and then all the sauces. Stir fry for a minute again till all is mixed.
6.     Then add cooked noodles with salt. Stir fry for two minutes and then cover it with lid for a minute or two to have all the flavors sink in. Serve with sauces.
