  3. Next, add  the remaining vegetables, salt and again cook until they are tender.
  4. Now add crushed black pepper and then add the sauces one by one. Cook for up to 2 minutes and then turn off the flame.
  5. Now remove the vegetables mixture in a bowl and let it cool down for up to 5 minutes so that the fried noodles do not get soft when mixed.

  8. Serve immediately.
