Tomato - Capsicum Cheese Noodles

Ready to Serve Tomato Capsicum Noodles
Noodles have become very famous these days. Not only kids, all age group people love to eat. I do not like, eating noodles in hotels or parties. Actually I am scared that they must have used some sauce which contain animal fats. So I do prepare noodles very often using vegetables, tomatoes, spring onions. Preparing them with Indian spices and giving Indian touch, makes my people more happy. So here is one such recipe of noodles with tomatoes, capsicum, a little spread of Amul cheese and of course loaded with Potato french fries. (Used fresh Potatoes for french fries).
You get different  types and shapes of noodles. Some are made with maida and some are made with wheat. I have used bambino noodles which are prepared using Durum wheat. It is well known that Durum wheat is the best wheat. I have used the long noodles. Noodles are nice when it is mixed with tomatoes.
There is no garlic or onion in this recipe. 
Lets see the recipe now.

 Ingredients :

To Cook 
 Noodles : Any brand : 500 GM ( I used Bambino Noodles).

To fry :
Tomatoes : 3 to 4
Capsicum : 2 to 3
Potatoes :  3 (Medium size)
Ginger : 1 Teaspoon
Oil : 1 Cup

Spices to use:
Jeera / Cumin Seeds : 1 Tea spoon
Garam Masala Powder : 1/2 Tea spoon
Red chilly powder : 1/2 Tea spoon
Coriander powder or (Rasam powder) : 1 Tea spoon 
Turmeric powder : a pinch.
Pepper pods : 4 to 6 
Salt : Required salt

To top up 
Coriander leaves : 2 Tablespoons (optional)
Cheese : 5o grams
Fried potatoes. : 1 Bowl.
Method :
1. Keep a big bowl of water to boil. Once the water is boiled add noodles and a teaspoon of oil. . Just break them it into small pieces in hand. (Not very  small). Once it is cooked drain the water from noodles and keep the noodles aside.     
2. Wash and cut tomatoes and capsicum (remove the seeds before cutting  into small), and grate ginger and keep it aside.Crush pepper pods.
3. Grate cheese and keep it aside. Wash and cut potatoes in to thin finger size (long) wash it and put in a bowl of water.
4. Keep a pan on the fire and heat. Put one tablespoon of  oil and heat. Add jeera and let it fry for 10 seconds.
5. Add cut capsicum and fry nicely for 2 to 3 minutes. Add tomatoes and fry till they turn soft.
6. Add garam masala powder, daniya powder, jeera powder, red chilly powder, crushed pepper pods and grated ginger.  
7..Add turmeric powder and mix it well. Add salt. Stir for another 1 minute.
8. Add cooked noodles and mix it well.
9. Add grated cheese and cover it and cook noodles on low flame. (It helps the cheese to melt and adds to the taste). (2 minutes will do. Put off the fire or remove the noodles pan from the fire).
10. Keep a frying pan on the fire and heat. Add one cup of oil
11. Now deep fry those cut potatoes in hot oil. Fry them on high and medium flame.
12. Fry on both sides and remove from the frying pan and put it on a kitchen tissue. ( It absorbs the extra oil).
13. Repeat the same and fry all the potatoes.
14. Sprinkle salt on fried potato fries and add it on the noodles. Mix cheese and potato fries nicely and serve with ketch up.

Note :
Noodles should be cooked well but not too soft. Adding more vegetables is a good option. You can use oregano spice ( a kind of spice used in noodles). You can use pepper crush and add it to the noodles. You can add more cheese. It adds to the taste. Adding onions and garlic is optional. You can also use grated paneer instead of cheese. Adding more spice is optional. You can use tomato sauce instead of fresh tomatoes. It is always better to use fresh tomatoes.
Time : 30 Minutes.
Serves : 4 to 5.
