For fried noodles:

4 cup water
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp oil
2 pack noodles
Oil for frying

For Chinese bhel:

2.5 tsp oil
2 clove garlic, finely chopped
1 inch ginger, finely chopped
1/2 onion, finely chopped
1/2 capsicum, sliced
1/2 carrot, shredded
2.5 tbsp schezwan sauce
2 tbsp tomato ketchup
1.5 tsp soya sauce
1.5 tbsp vinegar
1/2 tsp black pepper powder
1/4 tsp salt


1. Firstly, to prepare the fried noodles, boil water in a large pan along with salt and oil. Once the water starts boiling, add in the noodles and boil them till al dente. Drain off the water and pour cold water to stop further cooking.
2. Once the noodles are cooled and dried completely, spread a handful of the cooked noodles in hot oil. Stir occasionally and fry them from both the sides till they turn golden and crisp. Strain off the fried noodles onto the paper napkin to absorb excess oil. Similarly prepare all the remaining batches.
3. Once the fried noodles cool slightly, take them in a bowl and crush them slightly. Crush all the fried noodles slightly and keep aside.
4. Now, to prepare the bhel, heat oil in a kadai and saute ginger and garlic. Further add in the finely chopped onion, sliced capsicum and shredded carrot. You may even add in vegetables of your choice. Saute them till they are half cooked yet remain crunchy.
5. Next add in schezwan sauce, tomato ketchup, soya sauce, vinegar, black pepper powder and salt. You can add in the sauce's as per your spice level. Mix them well on medium flame till the sauce combines well.
6. Now, add in the fried, crushed noodles to the masala mixture and mix them well. You can add in some spring onions for a better taste.
7. Finally, serve spicy and crunchy Chinese bhel immediately.
