    This is a great summertime - or anytime - vegetarian dish. Feel free to add other vegetable in addition to the capsicum, or some fried paneer or tofu to make it a meal.

    Pretty good, with a few changes to add flavor. I added 2 cloves of garlic, 2 tbsp of sugar, and about 1/4 cup of rice vinegar. I also doubled the amount of cayenne pepper in total, substituted scallions for cilantro. Next time I may add some ginger, too. Goes great accompanied with a hot stir fry.  -  05 Aug 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    We have this at least once a month. It's so easy to play around with...adding as you please. I always add in stir-fried chicken and what ever veggies I have stir-fried along side like cabbage and cauliflower. Just toss it all together and season. I usually toss the noodles with garlic oil (garlic crushed with a motar and pestel and fried in oil till golden) before I add other ingredients. My hubby is not a fan of sesame oil, so I leave that out. Use your imagination with this. Thanks Ashley.  -  11 Sep 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Sorry didn't care for this at all and will never make again. It was spicy but that is all. The flavors never seemed to meld together even overnight.  -  03 Sep 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
