Egg Noodles Wrap
Of late, I have noticed that my 11-year old daughter is quite fond of noodles. She orders it every time we go out to eat, and ensures that I send her Maggi at least once a week to school. So I thought to myself, what is better than noodles? “Noodles stuffed in a wrap!” said my daughter enthusiastically. That’s how the Egg Noodles Wrap came into being; it gave me the opportunity to experiment with something new.
In this recipe, for the stuffing I have used chopped vegetables, like capsicum (Shimla mirch) and carrots (gajar), which go well with noodles. These are cooked along with sliced onions rings (pyaaz) in a hot wok on high flame. Boiled hakka noodles are added to the wok after some time, along with different sauces and vinegar (sirka). Soya sauce is frequently used as a condiment in Chinese cuisine. It has a savoury flavour as it contains umami. The acidity of vinegar brightens up the dish. The noodles are stir-fried and kept aside.
For the wrap, I have combined grated cheese with well-beaten egg (anda), which gives an absolutely rich and delicious flavour. A hot pan is smeared with some butter, and as it starts bubbling, the egg mixture is poured onto it and swirled properly. It is allowed to cook for some time, after which the stuffing is placed in the centre. This Egg Noodles Wrap tastes mouth-watering with some sauce. My daughter loved it, and took credit for it by scribbling her name below the recipe.
