About American Chopsuey

American chop suey is a side dish that is often served with fried rice or noodles.

This recipe is quite simple to make.

Basic vegetables like carrots, bell peppers, spring onions, and cabbage is tossed in a thick sweet & sour gravy along with some flavourful sauces.

This is a vegan, beginner-friendly recipe.

You can easily tweak the recipe by adding vegetables of your choice.

Vegetables like broccoli, baby corn and french beans can be added. For vegan & vegetarian protein, you can also add tofu or panner cubes.

Make Noodles At Home

In case you want to make noodles at home:

In a big saucepan add 2 litres of water and bring it to a boil.

Once the water starts boiling add the Hakka noodles and cook the noodles as per the instructions on the cover.

When the noodles are cooked, drain the water completely & drizzle 2 tsp of Oil so that the noodles do not stick to each other.

Once cooled and dry, lightly coat them with cornflour & deep fry them in oil over medium flame till they are crisp and golden in colour.

Your fried noodles are ready.


Fried Noodles – For this recipe, I have used store-bought fried noodles that are now easily available at any grocery store.

Garlic – We will require a teaspoon of chopped garlic which enhances the taste of this dish.

Vegetables – I have used basic standard vegetables like carrots, cabbage, onions, capsicum (bell peppers) and spring onions. You may add vegetables of your choice.

Sauces – For that sweet, tangy, spicy taste we will add tomato ketchup, red chilli sauce, soya sauce and vinegar.

Sugar – We will need 3-4 tablespoons of sugar to give that sweet taste to the chopsuey. Adjust the sweetness according to your preference.

Corn flour- To give that subtle thickness to the gravy we will need 3 tablespoons of cornflour slurry.

Oil – For cooking and frying the noodles (if you are making fried noodles at home)

Storage Options

American chop suey is best served immediately and storing is not recommended as the noodles get soggy and taste and texture vary.
