7 Interesting Ways Noodles Have Invaded Our Most Loved Dishes

NDTV News Lifestyle 11 months ago
Did you know that in one of ancient Chinese beliefs, long noodles represent a long life? Consequently, if you cut your noodles before serving them, in a way you are also cutting your life short. In India, the Chinese myth may or may not be a matter of life or death, but noodles have definitely become a huge part of our lives. Made from unleavened dough which is stretched, extruded, or rolled flat and finally cut into several shapes and sizes, noodles have taken the world by storm. While there are several sumptuous ways to prepare noodles - you can have them spicy, soupy, simple or spruce them up with seasonal veggies and exciting toppings - noodles are a favourite ingredient to prepare a variety of dishes. Here are 7 dishes which have used noodles and resulted in the best fusion combinations ever-

1. Noodle Roll

Kathi Roll fans raise your hand! Just cook your noodles the usual way you like, then slit a cooked Seekh Kebab if you want a meaty fill in your roll. Add some onions, spices, sauces and chillies and roll it up in a  Roomali Roti or Paratha and enjoy the delicious and wholesome Noodle-Kebab Roll.

Bored of the same evening snacks? This delicious combination can make for the perfect evening snack option you've been looking for. Take a bowl, add some boiled peas and mash them. Add some corns and mash them too. Add some besan (gram flour) to the mashed peas and corn and mix well. Finally add the cooked noodles, salt, cumin powder, garam masala, and red chilli powder. Tip in some cheese and milk to the mixture and mix well. Start moulding cutlets out of the mixture with your hands, and coat them with bread crumbs. Fry the cutlets and enjoy!
