if she was here till the weekend and on hearing that we are meeting,
she was so happy. I was too as I could meet her again as well.
this year. It was total fun and I only hope Rajani wasn’t bored to
death with my stories. However the surprise element was Sowmya, for a
person who seem to come across as very silent and somber, she had us all
in splits through the day! She was entertaining us so much with her
stories of baking, and other adventures, which were so funny. With great
reluctance we decided to leave home. Jayanthi gave us this pretty
napkin and potato wafers and an ear ring for Konda, who went with me. I
wasn’t actually planning to take her. She said she was bored and after
seeing little ones, she was thinking what she will do, only to realize
that the kids really got to her and she enjoyed her time.
whole, a wonderful Saturday spent with good friends. Thinking about the
day, I almost seem to have forgotten to talk about the noodles that I
made yesterday for breakfast. Kids loved it so much and wanted a repeat.
I am not sure if the boys ate the bell pepper, I know Konda loves
capsicum. This is from my collection of capsicum recipes. I am still no
where near scoring off the numbers!
Jayanthi gave us this homemade potato vathals with napkins as props and a pretty ear ring for Konda!
Bell Pepper Noodle
Hakka Noodles – 2 packets
Onions – 1 cup
Green Bell Pepper, Yellow Bell Pepper – 2 cups
Tomato – 1/2 cup
Green Chili sauce – 2 -3 tsp
Soya Sauce – 2 tsp
Pepper powder – 1/2 tsp
Salt to taste
Oil – 3 -4 tsp
How to make the Bell Pepper Noodles
Boil the noodles with twice its amount of water along with oil. Drain and mix with a tsp of oil so that they don’t stick together.
Finely chop the bell peppers, onions, tomatoes as julienne.
Heat a big pan or wok, add oil and saute the onions on high. Then add the tomatoes, bell peppers along with green chilies, soya sauce, salt.
Quickly keep sauteing, then add the boiled noodles and toss around.
Serve hot with tomato ketchup
It’s always better to boil the noodles less than the required time. It takes about 7 – 8 mins on high, so switch off by 6 mins.
Run over water to make sure the starch doesn’t settle down.
