tips for making noodles recipe

  1. typically, while making any stir fried dish, the heat has to be high and the ingredients have to be tossed and stirred continuously. while making such recipes at home, its better to use a wok or a pan with handles. so that its easy to lift & hold the pan with the handles, while tossing as well as when stirring.
  2. if possible use toasted sesame oil. it gives a good smoky flavor to the veg noodles recipe. 
  3. use any good quality noodles. you can use whole wheat noodles or plain flour noodles. noodle recipe can also be made with hakka noodles. for a gluten free noodle recipe, you can use rice noodles or buckwheat flour noodles (soba noodles).

  1. first boil enough water with a bit of salt and ½ to 1 teaspoon oil. 
  2. add the noodles and cook them. 
  3. when the noodles are al dente or just about cooked, strain them in a colander. then rinse the noodles with fresh water. drain off the extra water. 
  4. later, you can even add  1 to 2 teaspoons of oil on the cooked noodles. mix the oil gently with the noodles and keep aside. later use the boiled noodles in any stir fried noodle recipe.
