American Chopsuey -- desi version

American Chopsuey is one of my favorite vegetarian dish which is crispy and tangy in nature. Crispiness comes from the fried noodles and tangyness comes from the sauce which is topped on it. Originally in America, American Chopsuey is based on pasta and meat but in India we get this American Chopsuey in vegetarian version with crispy noodles.In India  you can find this dish under Indo Chinese recipes in restaurant menu. 
American Chopsuey is easy to make and having one step more (frying noodles) compare to other noodle based recipes.Boil the noodles, then fry it till crispy, make sauce with your favorite veggies in it and serve. While serving, first layer the noodles, then pour the sauce on it. Omelet on top is optional while serving the dish. American Chopsuey can be served as side dish or main dish.
