Vegetarian Thukpa#Soupswappers

For this month event our host Karen  , asked us to make  noodle soup. 
Thukpa is a Tibetan noodle soup which has its origins in eastern part of Tibet . But this soup is mostly made with meat and is popular in Nepal, Bhutan, in Northeast India - states like Sikkim, Assam and Arunachal Pradesh.
When I,  was in Sikkim for a holiday, had this vegetarian as well as the non vegetarian version, on different day's for my dinner, it's so delicious, filling soup , since it's loaded with vegetables.
1 Packet Noodles
1 Small Onion - finely chopped
2 Medium Tomatoes - finely chopped
1 Carrot - cut into juliennes
½ Cup Shredded Cabbage

4 French Beans - chopped
10 Broccoli Florets or Cauliflower
½ Teaspoon Minced Ginger
2 Cloves Minced Garlic
½ Teaspoon Garam masala
½ Teaspoon Red Chilly powder
750 Ml Vegetable Stock

In a pan, heat oil , add the ginger garlic paste, saute  till it just starts of change color, add the onions saute until its turns translucent.  Add the tomatoes, cook  till they soften a little . Add the veggies -  carrots, broccoli florets, shredded cabbage , french beans and saute till for a minute. Add the vegetable stock and salt, bring this to a boil.  Now add garam masala, red chilly powder and soy sauce,  mix well and let it cook  till the veggies are done.
