  • Heat oil in a pan and add the the chopped garlic and green chili. After its cooked add the onion and fry till they are cooked, now add the veggies and fry.
  • Add salt,chili powder and garam masala. When the veggies are half done add the chicken stock and allow it to boil.
  • Add tomato sauce and chili sauce as per your taste. Cook till the vegetables reach a stage where they are cooked well but not mashy.
  • To serve add noodles to the serving bowl and pour this hot soup along with the veggies. Top it with the chicken and egg strips. Note that the soup should just be enough to soak the noodles. Enjoy this hot and healthy soupy noodles on a winter afternoon.
