How To Make American Vegetable Choupsey Recipe

Written By Rajesh Kumar on Monday, 17 October 2016 | 02:55


American Vegetable Chop Suey is a classic Indian Chinese adaptation of Crispy noodles served along with a sweet and sour vegetable. I have no clue where the it got its name Chop Suey, but I believe it means “savoury mess”. Wiki has an interesting read on Chop Suey. The sweet and sour vegetables topped over crispy noodles is a favourite at home and now my growing up boys also love it.

Makes: 3 to 4 servings

Ingredients for the American Choupsey
  • 150 grams of hakka noodles, boiled until ardent
  • 2 cups shredded cabbage
  • 1 large onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 carrots, Julienned
  • 1 green capsicum, thinly sliced
  • 10 to 15 green beans, cut diagonally
  • 1 cup of cauliflower florets
  • an inch piece of grated ginger
  • 2 to 3 spring onions, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • salt and pepper to taste
Ingredients for the Choupsey Sauce
  • 2 tablespoons corn flour
  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup tomato puree
  • 1/4 cup tomato ketchup
  • 2 tablespoons asian chilli sauce
  • 2 teaspoons rice vinegar
  • salt to taste
Method
  1. Heat oil for deep frying on medium high heat; once the oil is heated, add in the cooked noodles in small batches and deep fry them until they turn golden brown.
  2. Drain the oil from the fried noodles and proceed the same way with the remaining noodles. Keep the crisp noodles aside.
  3. In a sauce pan combine all the ingredients for the sauce, adding 2 cups of water. Bring the sauce to a boil on medium heat stirring continuously until the sauce thickens. Once the sauce thickens, turn off the heat and keep aside.
  4. Heat oil in a wok; add in the sliced onions, ginger and the remaining vegetables and stir fry on medium to high heat until the vegetables are lightly tender.
  5. Once the vegetables are cooked, add in the sauce to it and stir for on high heat for a couple of minutes. Turn off the heat and check the salt and spice levels. Adjust to suit your taste.
  6. To serve the American Chop Suey, place the crisp noodles on a serving plate and spoon over the sweet and sour vegetables over the crispy noodles. Serve this dish immediately.
 Note: You can also use a combination of both crisp noodles and soft noodles, the choice is purely yours on how you would like to serve your American Chop Suey.
