How to make Chicken Fried Noodles

Drain the noodles once again and transfer to a large bowl. Now add the sesame oil and toss well, so that the noodles gets the sesame flavour.
Heat vegetable oil in a deep frying pan over low-medium flame, and saute the onions and garlic for a minute or until onions turn golden brown and translucent. Then add the chicken pieces in the sauteed onions and stir them well.
After stirring them for a minute, add the red chilli sauce and 3/4 tablespoon of light soy sauce. Stir the chicken well in it and cook for a minute. Then, add the remaining light soy sauce, cooked egg noodles and sweet soy sauce. Mix them well and cook the noodles for a minute or two.
Put another frying pan on low flame, heat a little oil in it, and add Tofu (you can substitute it with paneer, if tofu is not available) cubes into it and fry until they turn golden brown. Then add lettuce, capsicum, carrots and bean sprouts to the pan. Toss them gently with Tofu and cook for a minute.
When your veggies are done, remove the frying pan from flame and pour all the vegetables over the cooked noodles and toss them gently once again. Chicken Fried Noodles are ready, serve it hot.
