How to make Udon Noodles with Beans

  1. Boil the noodles : Heat sufficient water in a large stock pot or pan and add salt and 1/2 tbsp Oil.Bring to a vigorous boil and add the noodles.
  2. Boil till al dente or just cooked.Drain in a colander and mix the remaining 1 1/2 tbsp oil into the noodles so that they do not stick to each other.Keep aside.
  3. Prepare the vegetables : Heat Oil in a Wok or a large pan to smoking point,reduce heat and add the chopped garlic and Onion whites.Increase heat and sauté for 2 – 3 minutes and add the beans and carrot and sauté for 5 – 7 minutes.
  4. Add the rest of the vegetables – baby corn and capsicum and all the sauces one by one.Mix well and cook for 4 – 5 minutes till the vegetables are coated with the sauces.
  5. Add the boiled and prepared noodles and toss to amalgamate.Drizzle 2 tbsp Chinese Sesame Oil on top for a greater and nuttier taste!
  6. Serve : Remove to a bowl and serve piping hot with Tomato Ketchup,Manchurian or on its own!

My Tip:

NOTE : We need to “just cook” the noodles as later on while stir frying they will start cooking again.If overcooked now they might turn into a doughy paste later on!
