A very big hai to everyone who are following my blog posts. Today let’s try a unique dish and am extremely sorry for those who don’t have beef in their food chart.
From Iniya’s birthday (2018), we have tried various dishes, since our appointments were filled for Reno and Richie who joined us from Chennai. We not only had fun-filled kitchen, we had photo sessions too. Today we tried a unique dish with noodles. Before explaining the making of the dish, let’s enjoy some fun-filled memories. Yes, my first experiment on noodles.
It was during my high school holidays I was with my maternal grand parents in our ancestral home. Since my grandpa was from judicial department, we could feel the silence in our home. Though we had maids for help, my grandma was head of the kitchen. Ours duty was to enjoy home-made meals between our fun-time. During that holiday i tried many dishes and they failed with something from taste to texture. But making of noodles and those events followed after cooking were my turning points of cooking. Though I did all the procedure for egg noodles it ended up messy. I restricted in presenting the noodles to my grandpa who was waiting, with banana leaf and he compelled me to give him a plate. With much fear I gave him a plate noodles, instead of firing, he enjoyed the dish, along with fun-filled chats. That’s how my grandpa was, he just wiped away my fear of cooking and suggested ideas for improving. From there my cooking experiments started. Ok, let’s move on to today’s topic.
Cheesy beef noodles with eggs
- Masala(chilli, turmeric, coriander, pepper)
- Ginger and garlic
The making of involves three different process.
Step 1. Boiling noodles
Boil water to high temperature, then add a pinch of salt, reduce the flame to half and then add noodles. When noodles reach the required texture, drain water and wash the noodles in cold water. Place it aside. The same process is applied for pasta too. This prevents them from being sticky.
Step 2. Beef preparation
Cut beef into small pieces and be sure, the pieces are free from bones. In a pressure cooker add the following, Beef, ginger, garlic, a pinch of turmeric, a pinch of salt and pepper. Add some water since the beef should be dry or free from water after cooking. When it gets cool, grind them in a mixer.
Step 3. Making Masala.
- In a sauce pan, free from nonstick, pour some oil and add spices.
- Add ginger garlic paste and saute them.
- Then add onion and a little salt and saute them.
- Then add tomato and saute them.
- Add egg and saute them till it gets fried and add cheese if needed.
- Once it gets cooked remove a portion of egg and keep them aside.
- Add Masala and saute them in the remaining portion of egg.
- Once it gets cooked, add noodles, beef, and the remaining portion of egg, mix them well.
- When it gets mixed well serve them.
