vermicelli with healthy sauce

 It is something I invented myself. I thought I would do a fried vermicelli . So I came up with this vermicelli with healthy sauce.
The nutritious version of the simple fry  n boil  with a soupy twist I just add some fresh veggies (chopped capsicum , onion , French beans, cabbage, carrots,small florets of cauliflower,pea  ) to the soupy twist vermicelli.
2 cup  vermicelli
2 cloves finely chopped garlic,  
1   sliced thinly onion, 
2 chopped chillies lengthwise
1/2 cup  small paneer cubes
1 cup chopped capsicum
1 cup  chopped French beans
1 cup chopped cabbage
1 cup chopped carrots
1 cup chopped cauliflower florets  
1 tbsp tomato sauce
1 tsp chilly sauce(optional)
1 tbsp light soya sauce
1 tsp white pepper
1 tsp vinegar
1tsp cornflour mixed with 1 cup of water

* Sallow fry vermicelli.
* Heat 1 tsp oil in a non stick pan. Add garlic and stir-fry til fragrant. Then add onions, chilli and carrots and all the chopped ingredients and stir-fry for a while.
* Add the seasonings and 1 cup of cornflour stock and let it come to a boil.
Finally add the fried vermicelli, stir-fry it until most of the stock is absorbed by the vermicelli. Serve  hot.
