Vegetable Chowmein

Chinese food is my favorite, I just love momos, chowmein, fried rice, manchurian, spring rolls.. ohh actually anything chinese..:)

So this was my first attempt to prepare some chowmein at home… I was nervous to the edge of my hairs… I wanted it to be something that I would love to eat… Now with a thumping heart and shivering fingers, this is what I did…
