Rice cooker Noodles and grilled noodles paratha





I always wanted to post a noodle recipe as it is one of the easiest to cook in rice cooker. This recipe is an easy one inspired by the Baked Indo-Chinese samosa that my blogger friend Sushma had posted in her blog "authentic food delights.blogspot.com". If you love munching easy to make tasty snacks you will surely love her blog.
You can eat the stir fried noodles or use it to make samosa or paratha.
This is going to be my last post for now in this blog.
 I will be blogging in my other blog 'same veggie many ways'.
I will be leaving a special note at the end of most of the recipes with tips to cook them in rice cooker for all my 'cooking without kitchen' users. Any useful recipes from that blog will be connected to this blog through dorm menu plans. Hope it will be convenient to you all.

I know there are a few recipes I have promised to give. May be I will post them after few months. Bye and keep cooking and also tell others about this blog.  
Please visit again and again and read the entire blog in your free time as it is like a cook book for new cooks. You will understand this blog better if you read all my posts. Bye and thanks.

For the stir-fried noodles-
Heat water in electric rice cooker and put 1 small packet of noodles (hakka, maggi or ramen).
Boil noodles for 3-5 mins, stir the noodles with a wooden or plastic fork and separate the strands while cooking.
Pour the noodles into a colander and drain the water. Do not throw this water. You can use it to knead the dough. Chop the noodles into bits with a scissor.
Wipe the cooker pan with a paper towel. Put 1 tbsp oil, chopped garlic or garlic paste, chopped onions  in the rice cooker. Press the 'cook' button and cover and cook till onion for 3 mins. Add chopped carrots, capsicum (bell pepper), cabbage and stir for 2 mins. Add  tomato ketchup, chilli sauce, soy sauce, white / black pepper corn pd, garlic pd and salt. Mix well. Add noodles (if using as a filling use half packet). Remove this into a plate.
You can eat this or use this as a filling in the paratha or samosa.

For the paratha or samosa dough-
Take  flour (all purpose flour or maida- or you could replace flour by half cup whole wheat flour) in a bowl add oil, salt. Mix these together with your finger tips. Add warm water in which you had boiled noodles. Knead into a dough. Shape into 4-5 lemon sized rounds and keep it covered. (it will dry out if you do not cover it).




For paratha-
Heat the grill or a non-stick griddle.
Roll the dough into a round or oblong using a little flour. Place 2 tbsp of the noodle filling on one half of the round and cover it with the other half. Press the edges and slowly pat the paratha with your palms to enlarge it.
Put little oil on the grill and place the paratha, cover and cook till it is slightly golden.
Turn the paratha to other side and cook again.


For samosa- Deep fry the above noodle filled dough on both sides.
