Stir Fry Vegetable Noodles

I am always fond of noodles. It is easy to cook and less time consuming. For a long time I was sticking with Maggie noodles from the Indian grocery stores. I was quite happy with Maggie and it gives the childhood memories. Recently I visited my friend’s house for lunch and happened to discuss about noodles. She said about her way of cooking noodles and it was very exciting for me. I immediately tried it and it turned out to be a very tasty noodles. I am no more getting Maggie noodles from the Indian grocery stores. I got stir fry noodles from Trader Joe’s. Here goes the recipe!!


  • 1 packet of stir fry noodles
  • Vegetables (as per your choice & quantity). I used the stir fry vegetables.
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1tsp paprika
  • 1tsp Soya sauce
  • 1tsp sugar
  • Salt for taste


  • Boil the water and soak the noodles in the water by adding a little salt. Drain the noodles once it becomes soft. It is the same process of pasta.
  • In a pan, add the garlic powder, paprika ,stir fry vegetables, a little water and cover cook for about 10 minutes until the vegetables gets cooked.

  • Add the drained noodles, sugar, soya sauce and salt. When you are adding soya sauce try to add little salt since soya sauce already has a sour taste. Cook and stir over high heat for 2 – 3 minutes or until the noodles are soft and most of liquid is absorbed. Turn off heat.
  • Serve hot with tomato sauce

This looks colorful AND tasteful. To think this was cooking in water instead of oil! Incredible.

I am going to give this one a try. Thanks for the tip about stir-fry noodles. I usually buy the durum flour noodles from the indian store which quickly turn mushy, I feel.
