American Chopsey

When I was in college , going to restaurants was rare thing in contrast with what it is today.  We went on special occasions like birthdays and enjoyed ordering and eating like grown ups. One dish I remember was "American chopsey" which I ate in a Chinese restaurant and loved it. 

When I came here I craved for this dish but did not know how to make it. I saw hakka noodles packet at a  Indian store and gave it a try. It tasted so good that we invited our friends over and we all enjoyed the product of my experiments !  Give it a try when you crave for something spicy and tangy..
