For the Noodles:
1.Soak half a packet of noodles in boiling hot water for 5 minutes. Or you can also do it in the microwave or stove the traditional way.

For the Tadka:
1. Put a few tsps of oil in kadai/vessel and after it becomes hot, add the mustard seeds, urad dal, channa dal, turmeric, curry leaves, and the green chillies.
2. After the dals turn a little brown, add the salted cashews. You can add unsalted cashews also. I usually use the fried salted ones which are readily available in the grocery stores.
