Noodles with Biryani Masala

instant noodles with biryani masala
Instant Noodles are always a saviour when I want something quick.  But I discard the seasoning mix in case it contains MSG.  MSG is also known as Sodium Glutamate.  Instead I use my favourite spices and it tastes equally good.  You can use Chicken Masala, Meat Masala, Garam Masala, Cajun Spice Mix as substitutes for Biryani Masala.

Noodles - about 160 gms
Cayenne Pepper - 1/4 tsp
Chat Masala - 1/4 tsp
Biryani Masala - 1/4 tsp
Onion - 1 small
Carrot - 1 small
Corn Kernels - 1/4 cup
Green Peas - 1/4 cup

1. Heat 1 - 2 tbsp oil in a kadhai/wok and add sliced onion.  Saute for about 2 minutes and add sliced carrot, corn and peas.
2. Saute till vegetables are half done or as you like.
3. Add about 2 cups water, cayenne pepper, chat masala, biryani masala and salt.  Stir all the powders well and add the noodles.
4. Cook till the noodles absorb water and turn soft.  Add more water if required.  Quick Biryani flavoured noodles are ready.
