In Nepal we eat a lot of noodles due mainly to the Tibetan influence on our cooking, however this dish is popular all over Nepal, not just in the parts which border Tibet. As a one-pot dish this is a very convenient easy dish as well as being healthy and nutritious. Please don't be put off by the long list of ingredients as many of these are store cupboard items and you do not need to include every vegetable mentioned. I think these noodles are best served hot or warm but I do have some friends that like to serve this as a cold salad on picnics or for lunch.
When you're in the mood for a real winter warmer that has tonnes of flavour, appeals to all the family and takes very little time to get in the oven compared to traditional casseroles, you can't go far wrong with this recipe.
