 For Ribbons    Suji - 1/2 cup grind it into flour
   Wheat flour - 1/4 cup   Maida - 3 to 4 tbsp
   Water - 
   Olive Oil - 1 tbsp

For Chowmein
Onion - 1
Capsicum - 1
Cabbage - 1 cup
Carrot - 1
Beans - 12
Soya Sauce - 1 tbsp
Chilli Sauce - 1 tbsp
Salt to taste
Pepper powder - 2 tbsp
Oil - 2 tbsp
Make a dough out of the Suji, Wheat Flour, Maida, Olive oil and Water.  Let the dough be slightly wet as rava would absorb little more water. Cover the dough with muslin cloth, rest for an hour.  Roll the dough into thin chappatis and cut ribbons with knife. Boil enough water in a container with salt and little bit oil, Put these ribbons and let them cook. It will not take very long. Drain the ribbons once cooked and keep them slightly moist. Add few drops of oil to the Ribbons to avoid sticking.  

 Preparation of Ribbon Chowmein :  Heat Oil in a big pan and add sliced onions and stir fry for 20-30 seconds, add all other vegetables and stir fry for 2 minutes.   Add salt and pepper and mix well. Now add Ribbons and mix well (take care that they don't break, one can use two spatulas to mix in place of one if you are not comfortable in tossing them in air)   Add vinegar, chili sauce and soya sauce and stir fry for a minute.  Serve the Ribbon chowmein hot.  

According to taste vinegar, soya sauce and chili sauce can be increased or decreased.
