Make noodles look, taste more interesting


A simple bowl or plate of noodles can be had in interesting and fun ways. To make them taste better, there are a lot of options like adding lemon zest, blended tomato or nuts, suggest experts.

* Ingredients like lemongrass, kaffir lime leaves and lemon zest can bring out beautiful flavours.

* Adding nuts like peanuts or almonds adds texture and crunch to a simple bowl of noodles which makes every bite fun.

* Curried meat or vegetable can bulk up the meal.

* A quick sauce can be made by blending one fresh tomato with a pinch of pepper, salt to taste and mix in a teaspoon of soya sauce and vinegar. Add it to the water being boiled to cook the noodles and create a new dimension.

* To give a rounded flavour to your meal, chop and blanch a cup of mixed vegetables like beans, broccoli, peas and carrots. Strain and add to the noodles being cooked when they are half done. Stir till done.

* Lightly dry roast a tablespoon of sesame seeds and half a cup of shelled peanut. Crush them coarsely. Chop one small onion with a de-seeded chilli and a small bunch of fresh coriander. Mix half the contents in the cooked noodles before serving and sprinkle the rest.
