by Aman

Hello everyone, hope you guys liked my last post Perfectly Boiled Noodles (You can find the link here) so continuing with that I will post a recipe for chilly garlic chow mien today using the same boiled noodles. In the display pic below I have not covered  the dish with any kind of garnished  so the that one see the texture of noodles properly.

Used FUNFOODS Garlic Chilli MOMO DIP in the recipe and there a mini review at the end of the post.

  • Mix all the sauce with vinegar, salt and water in a bowl.
  • Heat oil in pan, add garlic, after 30 secs add veggies.
  • Veggies uncovered on high flame for 2-3 mins.
  • Add Sauce and cook for another 30 secs and add MSG.
  • Now add boiled noodles in 3-4 batches and toss properly with light hands.


  • Switch off the flame and let it stand for 2-3 mins so that noodles absorb all the flavour.


  • Taste the seasoning in the sauce mix before adding to the dish and adjust if required.
  • Adding noodles in small batches makes it easier to toss them and it doesn’t make the noodles mushy.
  • One can avoid adding garlic chilli  momo dip to make normal vegetable chow mein.
  • Adding MSG is optional one can avoid it , but yes it does enhances the flavour.





  • It comes in a sealed airtight pack.
  • It can be added to various dishes to enhance the flavour with reduced efforts.
  • Rs. 69 for 250gms which seems to be descent and competitive enough in the market.


  • It contains MSG, which is not recommended for infants below 12 months.
  • Taste of chilli overpowers the garlic flavour which I didn’t like as am a garlic lover.
  • Shelf life is 6 months and I don’t think I can use up this product in just 6 months.
  • As the name says MOMO Dip, I didn’t get that authentic flavour from it, but yes it’s a close substitute.


Considering all the pros and cons I will give this product just a single thumbs up not two as it can be easily avoided. But if you a chilli lover, you can have it in your pantry to add more flavours in dishes.
