I cooked Chicken Stir Fry with Noodles, which is the quickest and healthiest delicacy prepared in just 15 minutes. Keep all the ingredients ready and believe me you can cook even faster on high heat. Enjoyed this dish with my family. This dish is whole meal by itself. You should definetly try it at home.
For Vegetarians, use Paneer instead of Chicken. Paneer should be cut in cubes and shallow fried until light brown before adding it to the Wok / Kadai with other ingredients. The vegetarians would enjoy this too.
