Process:

  1. Bring a pot of water to a boil, add salt, ground black pepper and a couple drops of oil. Add the noodles and boil until its cooked. Once cooked immediately plunge in ice cold water, drain well and sprinkle a little oil. This prevents them from sticking to each other.
  2. Heat oil in a wok, add the vegetables and sauté for 2-3 mins. Don’t overcook, the dish tastes best when the vegetables are slightly crunchy.
  3. Add tomato sauce, chilli sauce, rice vinegar.
  4. Add the boiled noodles, mix everything. Turn off the flame.
  5. Pour soy sauce, around the edges of the wok and gently fold it in.
  6. Garnish with chopped scallion and serve.
