Vegetable Teriyaki Noodles


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.






INGREDIENTS:
Note: All measurements are based on the US measuring cup and spoon sizes where 1 cup = 235 ml
  • Carrot ( cut into thin strips) :  1/2 cup
  • Green beans (cut into thin strips lengthwise) : 1/2 cup
  • Bell pepper ( cut into thin strips) : 1/2 cup
  • Cabbage (finely shredded) : 1 cup
  • Sugar snap peas : 1/2 cup (optional)
  • Onions (thinly sliced) : 1/2 cup
  • Ginger (grated ) : 1 tbsp
  • Garlic (grated) : 1 tbsp
  • Green onion (finely chopped) : 1/2 cup
  • Oil : 2 tbsp
  • Noodles (you can use soba noodles , udon noodles , Ching's Noodles or any noodles of your choice ) : 8 oz  (approx. 250 grams) //See Notes//
  • Spicy peanuts : 1/4 cup
  • Sesame seeds : 1/4 cup (I used white sesame seeds)
  • Salt if needed
Sauce Mix :
  • Soy sauce : 1/4 cup
  • Brown sugar / Honey : 2 tbsp
  • Red chilli flakes : 1 tsp (adjust according to taste)
  • Sriracha sauce : 1 tsp (adjust according to taste)
  • Sesame oil / vegetable oil : 1 tsp
  • Rice Vinegar : 2 tbsp
  • Corn starch : 1 tbsp

PROCEDURE:
  • Dry roast the sesame seeds and set aside.
  • Bring a medium pot of water to boil. Add the noodles and cook until slightly done (al dente) or cook as per the package instructions. Drain the water and set aside.
  • In a bowl, take the ingredients under the "sauce mix" section. Whisk and mix well.
  • Heat 2 tbsp oil in a big pan / wok. When hot , add the onions , ginger and garlic. When the carrot, green beans and sugar snaps peas. Cook for 5 mins. Once the veggies are almost cooked, add the remaining veggies (cabbages, bell peppers and green onions). Cook for a minutes.
  • Add the sauce mix and cook for a minute or two.
  • Add the cooked noodles. Toss it well so that it is well covered with the sauce. Adjust the seasoning if needed.
  • Lastly add the toasted sesame seeds and spicy peanuts. Serve hot. Serve some Sriracha sauce on the side for added spiciness / heat.
Notes:
  1. I tried making this recipe with thin rice noodles  and was not very happy with the overall texture. Slightly thicker variety of noodles like udon or hakka work well.
  2. You can adjust the Sriracha sauce and dry red chilli flakes as per taste.
  3. You can play with the choice of vegetables. You can include brocolli, water chestnuts etc.
