Healthy Chinese Bowl🍲

We all love to eat Chinese food but we prefer a healthier version as you cannot eat it often. This recipe is my favourite and I eat it several times a month. In this recipe i have used multigrain store bought noodles and broccoli.


  1. Do not over boil your noodles. They tend to break easily to while stirring them be careful.

  2. You can use any noodle even the regular maida one.

  3. You can replace broccoli with cauliflower and use the same process.

  4. Be careful while adding hing because when added more it tends to overpower other flavours.

  5. You can adjust the amount of veggies according to your choice.

  6. Do not leave broccoli in hot water for a long time as it will lose its crunchiness.

  7. Tasting at every step is important so as to maintain the flavours.
