Stir-Fried Mixed Vegetables

Image
Let's face it. some of us don't like vegetables any more than our toddlers do.Most of us do not get enough servings of fruits,vegetables and whole grains that our bodies need. A single food can never provide all the essential nutrients that our body needs. Therefore it's always important to consume a wide variety of food to provide adequate intakes of vitamins,minerals and dietary fiber.Vegetables can be added to almost any food. They generally add a lot of flavor to main dishes, as well as a lot of nutrition. I have a habit of adding vegetable to my meat dishes even fruits sometimes. They add more flavors and the dishes looks more tempting and colorful too. I have omit the addition of meat to my stir-fry this time. I wanted to tasty each vegetable by it's own flavor. Believe me it tasted awesome with fried rice.

These are commonly found in may restaurant and seems to be on the hit list among people especially kids. Whenever I go to any restaurant I normally find youngest ordering these Indo-Chinese fusion food compared to local Indian food.A bowl of healthy noodles loaded with yummy vegetables is never easy to NO at all. I really got mad at the sight of dosas and iddlies after coming back to India but I just really love them so much:) Ha haa!!! I'm mad right??? Anyway back to my recipe: Lengthy curly noodles tossed with tons of colorful vegetables with the touch of soy sauce really make this dish special at any time.
