Stuffed Noodles, 3 ways(reposted)

Tried and tasted by Nivedita
Hi All,
As usual, my last minute entry for the event.  Re posting  the whole post after editing it as the old one is very lengthy. 
Noodles are mom's best friend in the world. Kids love noodles in any form and with anything. My friend Vaishaly and I tried this together. After trying few shapes and the way of cooking we decided to make veggie noodles rolls for the competition.
Interesting thing in this is that the masala mix is the same, only the way of stuffing and cooking is different. Choose the one you want!!




First is the recipe for making masala mix :
For Stuffing:
Mixed Vegetables – 200 gm
(Carrot, Cauliflower florets, Capsicum, Cucumber, Onion, Sweet Corn, Peas, Beans, thinly sliced cabbage)
Garlic – 2 cloves, chopped
Green Chilly - 2 finely chopped
Red chilly flakes – 1tsp
Salt to taste                 
Oil – 1 tbsp

For Sauce:
Tomato Ketchup – ½ cup
White vinegar – ½ tsp
Red Chilly flakes - 1 tsp
Maggi veg.cube – 1
Black pepper powder – ½ tsp
Mix all the ingredients for sauce in a bowl and keep it aside.

For Batter
Corn flour – 3 tbsp
Veg. Stock – 1 cup
Mix it in a bowl and use as required

For the layers:
Flat noodles – 2 packets

(you can mix the normal one also)
Salt to taste
Maggi veg.cube – 1
Corn flour – 1 tbsp
Black pepper powder – ½ tsp
Mozzarella cheese to spread
Butter

Method:


To make Vegetable mix masala:
  • Heat the oil in Microwave safe dish on HIGH for 2 minutes.
  • Add chopped garlic and keep it back in oven on HIGH for a minute.
  • Add mixed vegetables. Sauté it and keep on HIGH for 5minutes. Keep on stirring in between.
  • Add the butter, ready sauce, batter and half the quantity of Veg. stock.
  • Keep back in oven on HIGH for 2 minutes. Stir it after one minute.
  • Check it after 2 minutes. If the mix is slightly thick remove it or keep again for one minute.
  • Cool it.  Divide it into equal quantity for stuffing.
To cook the noodles:
  • Boil the water with salt in a microwave safe dish on HIGH FOR 2 minutes.
  • Add Maggi Veg cube, salt and flat noodles and boil on HIGH for 1 minute.
  • Be careful not to over cook the noodles.  The noodles should be paraboiled.
  • Remove, drain the water and transfer it into colander. Pour cold water on the noodles and drain it properly to remove all the water. Sprinkle powdered Veg cube, corn flour and pepper powder. Mix properly and keep it aside.
To  Make Idly:

Making stuffed noodles idly was my idea and tasted great too. Check out the photos.

  • Take the Microwave safe idly plate. Spread the noodles in a thin layer. 
  • Take a tbsp of masala and keep it in the middle. Spread the mozzarella cheese on the top. Cover it with another thin layer of noodles. Repeat with all the moulds.
  • Keep it covered on HIGH for 3 minutes. Remove and allow it to cool. 
  • Stuffed noodles idly are ready to serve.

To stuff the roll:
  • Divide the noodles according to the size of the roll you want to make.
  • Take one portion; spread it on an even plate to make a round shape.
  • Press with wet hand to combine it.
  • Spread the grated cheese to make a thin layer.
  • Keep the ready vegetable mix in the center.
  • Cover it to give the roll shape. Apply the corn flour batter to close it properly.
  • Brush it with butter.
  • Repeat with other rolls.
  • Brush the microwave safe big plate. Keep the rolls in it.
  • Bake it oh HIGH for 3 minutes. Open and turn the rolls. Brush with butter. Again bake it on HIGH for few more minutes.
  • Allow to cool.
  • Serve with Ketchup or sauce.


Going little oily,
Take the stuffed idly shaped noodles, fry in the hot oil and serve it with ketchup or sauce.

3 ways to make stuffed noodles.

Tried and tasted by Nivedita
Hi All,
Home made Wheat sevian, Rice sevian are the recipes from olden days in India. We prepare upma, kheer and many more dishes with these.
It was like a revolution when the noodles were introduced in India. For me, it was a magic! noodles in 2 minutes!!  Now a days there are many good brands making noodles. Maggi was the first in India. Then came Top Ramen... Now countless..

The new in the market in this year is the Foodles from Horlicks. The taste is good and different.
Noodles are mom's best friend in the world. Kids love noodles in any form and with anything. I always try to do something new with these noodles. Here is one more which was tried for the cooking competition. My friend Vaishaly and I tried this together. After trying few shapes and the way of cooking we decided to make veggie noodles rolls for the competition.

Awards!!!! and food in photo!

Tried and tasted by Nivedita
Hi All
Before I started my blog, I was a silent follower of many blogs, and when ever I used to see the awards on their blogs, I used to feel, is it possible for me to get at least one award among these. It might not be a big thing for many to get awards !! But for me, I feel really very happy and I feel, even I am something!!!!
I was busy in the last week, as my brother and bhabhi came for my second daughter's birthday!!!
It was great fun!!! and when I opened my mail after a week, I got the surprise from Padma!!
Thanks Padma for passing these wonderful awards to me!!!

When I started my blog, I never thought, I will get the awards so soon.








And, I want to thank all my friends in this blog world for passing so wonderful and encouraging awards to me!!!



Coming to the the recipe in "Food in photo", it is VEG NOODLES, my way, as I love to have this healthy noodles only this way cooked. I eat Plain noodles also sometimes, but prefer to eat this way as my morning breakfast as it is very good to start a day with lot of vegetables and sometimes adding scrambled egg in it. The recipe is almost the same in many blogs.
(check the same recipe in http://paritaskitchen.blogspot.com/2009/09/maggi-or-pastaitsfusion.html).Only difference is I boil the noodles first and add it after all the vegetables are cooked.
So I thought of posting it in my "Food in Photo"

(I could not participate in many events as I was busy in the party!! I hope I will try to participate in coming months regularly!!! )

Keep smiling

Nivedita
