Noodles 500 Gram (Cooked as per instructions on the pack)
Salt & pepper To Taste (For the chicken)
For the gravy
Vinegar 50 Milliliter
Sugar 50 Gram
Soy sauce 50 Milliliter
Chili sauce 1 1/2 Teaspoon
Maida 1/3 Cup (5.33 tbs)
Tomato sauce 4 Tablespoon
For the topping
Olive oil 2 Tablespoon
Cabbage 100 Gram , shredded long
Onion 1 Medium , sliced
Beans 100 Gram , cut into 1

Ajinomoto 1 Teaspoon
Salt To Taste
Green onions 50 Gram , chopped
Celery stalks 2 Medium , chopped

1. In a pot cook the noodles as per the instructions on the packet

2. In a separate pot cook the chicken with a little salt and pepper to taste and set aside once done.


3. Take a pan and add all the ingredients for the gravy. Mix well so that there are no lumps formed and stir on medium heat till the gravy simmers and thickens to the desired consistency and set aside.

5. To the above vegetable and chicken mix add the prepared gravy and combine well. The topping is now ready.

6. Take a small bowl or a mold, fill it with the boiled noodles and press it tightly with another similar bowl so that the noodles take the shape of the mold.
