Hi everyone, today im going to teach you a traditional tibetan recipe called chowmen. Chowmen is one of my favourite recipe’s. It is a dry noodle that has been boiled, fried in oil, mixed with vegetables and is very delicious. I recently and chowmen yesterday and it was yummy. I ate four plates of chowmen…..yum.

  • 3/4 cup vegetable or chicken stock
  • 4 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon cornflour
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable or peanut oil
  • 2 celery sticks, chopped
  • 200g mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 red capsicum, sliced
  • 1 medium onion, sliced
  • 150g beansprouts

Its time to make the chowmen.

Preparation Method:

Bring a pot of lightly salted water to a boil. If the noodles are fresh, steep them in the boiling water for 1 minute, then drain. If the noodles are dry, cook according to packet directions.
In a small bowl, whisk together the stock, soy sauce and cornflour.
Heat the oil in a wok over medium-high heat. Stir in the celery, mushrooms, red capsicums and onion and cook for about 3 minutes. Add the stock mixture, beansprouts and snow peas. Continue to cook and stir for about 5 minutes, until vegetables are tender but crisp.
Stir in the cooked, drained noodles until warmed through and serve.
