Boiled smooth velvety noodles fried in crispy veggies. I love my veg chowmein full of veggies and I must sure you too. Whenever my tummy wants to eat Chinese only veg chowmein comes on my mind. On my college days I love to have chowmein, whenever me and my best friend go out of lunch in our college days we must order chowmein. From those days I want to make chowmein and tried so many times but did not get perfection; past 2 year back one day I made them in oven and then they made perfect and then I learn how to make perfect chowmein.
This recipe is not microwave veg chowmein recipe as after learn making perfect chowmein I always make it over gas stove in a pan and I love to make my chowmein over gas stove… that’s why no microwave recipe.
I this recipe I use ajinomoto, you can avoid it. As some people don’t want ajinomoto in their dish, very health conscious people… :p. Specially ajinomoto is use to enhance the taste of chowmein, if you add it you get more perfect veg chowmein. Without ajinomoto your veg chowmein is also perfect but not as much like with ajinomoto.
Have any question, please feel free to ask. I always read and reply on each and every comment, as I love to hear from my readers.
