About This Mushroom Noodles

Noodles make a great dinner option because they are comforting, cook quickly and taste delicious! I have been making these mushroom noodles for a long time but, never got round to posting the recipe until now.

I usually prepare Indo-Chinese stir-fried noodles as a quick brunch or lunch. When I make it for lunch I serve them with Veg Manchurian and they pair perfectly.

This recipe of mushroom noodles is so simple as no extensive veggie chopping is required which is always a plus! Simply chop the mushrooms, spring onions, garlic, ginger, green chilies and you are good to go!

Another great thing about this dish is that it is easy to customize. Most vegetables go well with noodles. Some great additions include grated carrots, french beans cabbage, baby corn, bok choy, Chinese cabbage, edamame beans or bell peppers. This will make the dish more nutritious, colorful and filling.

I have kept the recipe basic and only made with button mushrooms so that the flavor of mushroom is felt throughout the entire dish. But you can opt to reduce the quantity of mushrooms and add additional vegetables of your choice. The vegetables have to be finely chopped or shredded so that they cook faster using the stir-frying technique.

Serve the noodles plain or with Gobi Manchurian.

Step-by-Step Guide

How to Make Mushroom Noodles

Cooking Noodles

1. Heat enough water to cover the noodles in a pan. Add salt and a few drops of oil to the water and bring to a boil. Add 200 grams of noodles to the water and cook according to the package instructions. Use hakka noodles, instant noodles or whole wheat noodles for this recipe.

2. While the noodles are cooking, rinse and chop the mushrooms, spring onions and herbs. Alternatively, you can chop them before you start cooking the noodles.

3. Once the noodles are done, drain the water using a strainer and rinse the noodles with cold water. After this drain the water from the noodles one more time.

Tip: The cold water will stop the noodles from cooking and prevent them from becoming too soft.

4. Then add 2 teaspoon of oil and gently mix the noodles. Make sure the noodles are evenly coated. Cover and set the noodles aside for later.

5. Heat oil in a wok, kadai or a pan on low to medium heat. Once the oil is hot add ½ tablespoon of chopped garlic, ½ tablespoon of chopped ginger and 1 teaspoon of chopped green chilies. Saute for a few seconds.

Tip: Alter the heat and spiciness of this dish depending on your preference. If you like spicy noodles then add more green chilies but if you don’t want it spicy then add less or no green chilies at all.

  4. I made that for my husband this evening as per the recipe. Unfortunately we felt it was a bit too dry for our liking and I had to quickly make a sauce for it so he would finish it.3 stars

    1. i make this recipe many times and never felt the dryness. if some more sauce was added, you would have not felt the bit of dryness. it also depends on the texture of noodles and the type of noodles.
