Vegan-friendly

Serves: 4 Cooking Time: 40 mins Total time: 60 mins

Background

Today we decided to bring you ramen noodles with an Indian fusion. Mutter Paneer (translates to peas and cheese) is a favourite in Indian households. The sweet taste of peas mixed with the tangy curry and cheese, what’s not to like?

To make our variation vegan-friendly we opted for Tofu in this recipe. Combined with ramen noodles and our mix of spices and herbs makes for a compelling meal on a cold winter day.

For this dish we used Indian green chilli peppers which along with the following benefits do add some heat to your meal:

  • they are  rich source of antioxidants, Vitamin C & E, and help to boost and strengthen natural immunity to diseases along with promoting great skin
  • they have plenty of dietary fibres which aids in digesting food faster
  • are a natural source of iron and help promote iron deficiency
