Chicken Thukpa ( With home-made flat noodles)

Hi Friends,
    Thukpa is famous recipe from Tibet ....... It is highly nutritive soup as it contains lots of veggies and chicken. 
Recently I tasted it at one of my neighbour's house and started searching for a good Thukpa recipe....
Finally I made my own version which came out very nice and loved by all at home. Sharing the recipe with you all :)

300 gm boneless chicken (cut into cubes)
Finely chopped vegetables (beans, carrot, onion, corn kernels, mushrooms )
5-4 spring onions (finely chopped)
1/2 thinly sliced red bell pepper
2 tbsp ginger-garlic paste
1/4 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp Soya Sauce
1/2 tsp Chilly Sauce
1 tbsp lemon juice
A pinch of ajinomoto
Olive oil
4 cups of Chicken Stock

For Home-made flat noodles:
1/2 cup all purpose flour (maida)
1 egg
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp oil
Water to knead dough


  • First to make flat noodles, put all the ingredients in a mixing bowl and make a soft dough of it.

  • Divide the dough into equal portion, make small balls.
  • Roll them with the help of a rolling pin. Make thin chapatis out of it.
  • Now take a knife and cut the chapati into long thin strips like flat noodles.

  • Keep them aside.
  • Now take a non stick pan, add olive oil. Add chicken cubes and fry till they are cooked and turn light pink in colour. Remove on an absorbent paper.Keep it aside.

  • In the same oil add chopped onions and saute till light pink in colour. Add ginger-garlic paste and saute for a minute.

  • Now add carrot, beans and red bell pepper. Mix nicely and cook on high flame till all the veggies are half cooked.

  • Now add corn kernels, mushrooms and spring onion. Cook on high flame for 1-2 mins.

  • Now add soya sauce, chilly sauce, salt, pepper, sugar and ajinomoto. Mix nicely. 

  • Now add chicken pieces along with the chicken stock. Stir nicely and bring it to boil.
  • Once its start boiling add home-made flat noodles in the soup. Keep it on low flame and cook for another 7-8 minutes or till the noodles are cooked. carefully stir it in between.

  • You will see that the noodles will itself start floating on the surface. Now the soup is ready to serve.
  • Sprinkle lemon juice on the top and serve it hot with garlic bread or soup sticks
  • Enjoy.................
