Chow Mein with shiitake mushrooms

Chow mien is a Chinese term for stir fried noodles. Although it is of Chinese origin, chow mein is well known to different countries all over the world. It is the second most popular fast food in Nepal. There are different versions of Chow Mein, American Chinese cuisine has two versions, Canadian Chinese cuisine has three different versions and in different countries there are different versions, this one that I am sharing with you is the common version, I like this better than the crispy version, although crispy version is also yummy. It is easy to prepare, I hope you will like it.
