Chop Suey(Only Veg)

noodle recipe chop suey

Classic American chop suey consists of elbow macaroni and bits of cooked ground beef with sautéed onion and green pepper in a thick tomato-based sauce.Though this decidedly American comfort food is clearly influenced by Italian-American cuisine, it is known as a chop suey because it is a combo meal with meat and vegetables.
 But my recipe is Chinese-American Chop Suey with only vegetables and Noodles instead of Pasta.
You can add chicken or meat and chicken stock instead of vegetable stock.
(Chop suey has become a prominent part of American Chinese cuisine, Filipino cuisine, Canadian Chinese cuisine, Indian Chinese cuisine, and Polynesian cuisine. In Indonesian Chinese cuisine it is known as Cap cai)
This recipe consists of simple 3 step process.
Step1
Cook the noodles with salt.
Heat oil in a frying pan and deep fry this cooked noodles.
Noodle should be added little by little and in a way that after frying it should resemble a bird’s nest.
