Vegetable Teriyaki Noodles is a delicious , easy to prepare and mildly spiced noodles. Some time back , I had bought Knorr's Teriyaki Noodles. We tried it and loved. I wanted to recreate that and this recipe is a work towards that. I have added a little more heat to suit my taste buds. I have made this recipe so many times now and shared these noodles with friends too . My family and friends all loved it so much.
