Shanghai Noodles (Vegetarian)

Its been constantly raining noodles in my space (Chinese Vegetarian Mee Hoon & Noodles In Thai Sauce) between the non-vegetarian and vegetarian varieties (Mee Rebus Vegetarian, Mutton Mee Hoon Soup & Assam Laksa). However if not all, most recipes are not the same (Lemongrass Prawn Mee). Otherwise, it won't be pleasing to my palates too. Today, I am lovingly giving you this Shanghai Noodles Vegetarian (Yam Basket Vegetarian). Shanghai believe me. It is Chinese Shanghai and not Indian Shanghai. This akin Indian Chinese just so love Chinese food until she sometimes will ensure that her Indian half-half also devour into Chinese dishes (Steamed Cod Fish, Chicken Salted Eggs, Chinese Fried Rice, Chinese Turnip Stew, Chinese Tea Eggs & Rice Congee Salted Eggs). Mind you, dessert as well (White Fungus Ginkgo Nuts). And............ Shanghai noodles is basically yellow noodles fried alongside garlic, ginger, and vegetables. Pure vegetarian perhaps would like to do away with eggs. I don't know, you decide please.

1/2 packet (300g) thin yellow noodles - rinsed
1/2 ginger - sliced thinly
5 garlic - sliced thinly
1/4 (150g) lettuce - sliced 
1/2 red capsicum - sliced
1/2 green capsicum - sliced
2 eggs (if you want to add)
2 sprigs of coriander leaves - sliced thinly
1 tsp sesame oil
1 1/2 tsp vegetable broth powder - mix with 1/4 cup of water
Oil as needed
Crushed black pepper and salt for taste

Heat 2-3 tbsp oil and when heated, break in eggs.
Season with pepper and salt.
Fry or scramble, remove and keep aside. 
Into the same wok, pour 2 tbsp of oil.
Saute ginger and garlic.
Add yellow noodles and stir for about 2-3 mins.
Pour in vegetable broth and let the noodles be cooked.
Add the rest of the ingredients and season with salt and pepper
Stir over high heat for a couple of time and dish out. 
(Optional: Serve with slices of cucumber).
Don't forget to trend alongside "cook with nava-k" on every other social media please!!
