Ingredients:

200g Quick cooking wheat noodles

Recipe:

Boil Quick cooking wheat noodles with little salt and 1 tsp oil in required amount of water for 2-3 mins.
Take off from stove and drain
Keep aside
Now grind the items metioned for masala together and keep the paste aside
In a big nonstick wok or pan add oil and wait till it is hot
Now add onions,toss
Now add carrots and give a toss
Wait till carrots r little tender and then add tomatoes and the paste you prepared and cook well till raw flavour is gone
Now add the noodles and toss well
Add soya sauce n toss again
Finally add little whipping cream n remove off the stove.
This was an experiment and it tasted well.Due to use of coconut n carrots it is mildly sweetish. To make it spicier you can increase the quantity of curry powder and green chillies
