American Chopsuey

American chopsuey is a dish that i had in restaurants. I still remember the first day I had this American chopsuey. My sister bought me and i liked that very much. Today i thought of preparing this for my dinner and i never expected that it would taste so great and look very much like that i have in restaurants. I did not take the step photos but still want to post my final output and the recipe. The preparation was really easy and taste was awesome.

Preparation time: 5 min
Cooking time: 20 min
Serves : 2

  • Noodles - 2 pack 
  • Egg (optional) - Half-boiled
  • Oil - to fry

For preparing sauce:
  • Onion -1 medium sized- finely chopped
  • Carrot -2 or 3 - finely chopped
  • Tomato paste or tomato puree - 1 medium sized
  • Salt to taste
  • Pepper powder - 1 pinch
  • Soya sauce - 1 pinch
  • hot chili sauce - 3 tbsp
  • Oil - 1 tbsp
  • Noodles masala - 2 pack

  1. Take a medium sized pan and boil water. As it boils, break the noodles into four quarters and add to the boiling water. Reduce the flame and cook for 3 min or until the noodles is completely cooked. I used maggi noodles.
  2. When noodles is cooked, filter the excess water. Then wash with cold water and keep aside.
  3. Heat a flat pan and add oil to fry the noodles. When the oil is hot, add cooked noodles little by little and spread them evenly so that it gets fried uniformly. Fry them until it becomes crispy and starts turning golden brown.
  4. As it becomes crispy, place it on paper towel to remove excess oil. Then arrange it on a plate.
  5. In meanwhile, heat a pan with little oil or you can use the same oil used for frying by removing the excess oil.
  6. Add onion and carrot. Saute them for a min. then add tomato puree. If you do not have tomato puree, you can also grind one ripe tomato in a mixer to get tomato paste. Let it cook for 2 min in medium flame.
  7. Then add hot tomato chili sauce, soya sauce, salt, noodles masala, pepper powder and mix them well. As this gravy gets thickened, switch off the stove.
  8. Spread the gravy over the fried noodles. Place a half- boiled egg over the top and serve. Adding egg is optional. Vegetarians can eat without adding egg.
