American Chopsuey made the Indian way

What is an American Chopsuey?

A savoury dish adapted in India from a popular American dish is prepared with crispy fried noodles/spaghetti and saucy stir-fried vegetables (soup).

My perfect bowl of happiness would be a bowl of this! Easiest to cook and can last for a day or two for sure!

 

After a recent meet with one of my friends, I really wanted to make the chopsuey with the only variation that I used spaghetti made of durum wheat instead of maida/all purpose flour and added a bit for extra rock salt, pepper and chilli flakes than required just to enhance the flavour and give it an Indian touch🧡
