Tips for Making Homemade Noodles:

  • Roll it however is easiest for you. Thomas bought me this pasta roller for my birthday a few years ago, and I love it. No pasta roller? Just roll your dough out with a rolling pin and use a knife or even a pizza wheel to cut it into noodle pieces. Dont over think it. Homemade pasta tastes great no matter how its cut!
  • This recipe is really easy to scale up if youd like to make more noodles. I normally triple the recipe and eat half the same day and save the other half in the freezer for a second meal later.
  • If your dough is pulling back and trying to keep its shape when you try to roll it out, let it rest another 10 minutes.
  • If your dough is very sticky, add more flour.
  • If your dough is very dry, put it back in the bowl and mix in additional milk or egg until its workable.
  • This is a great recipe to make with kids. Mine love to use mini cookie cutters to make noodle shapes which we just cook up and serve with a simple pasta sauce.

    It only requires a small amount of flour, salt, and eggs to make a workable dough in a bowl. Then roll, cut, and boil!.

  • Quarter the cabbage and immerse it in a bowl of warm water. Leave it for a while and repeat a few times in a bowl of fresh cold water. Drain the water completely from the cabbage. Julienne the cabbage and keep it aside. Make sure cabbage is drained well. Excess moisture can make the veggies soggy.
  • Peel and julienne the carrots, bell pepper, green beans & zucchini (optional).
  • Slice the green chilies and onions thin (optional).
  • I used about 2 heaped cups of cabbage, 3/4 cups of carrot, 1/4 cup of beans, 3/4 cup capsicum. You can use up to 3½ cups of mixed veggies.
  • 3. Drain the noodles into a colander once they are al dente. Rinse with cold water. Spread 1 teaspoon oil all over the noodles.

    4. Prepare the sauces by combining 1 tablespoon soy sauce, 1 teaspoon vinegar, and 1 to 2 teaspoons hot sauce in a small bowl before starting to stir-fry the vegetables. You won’t have time to do it later. So keep it ready. For substitutes check my notes below.

    5. Heat a wok or a pan. Add 2 tablespoons oil & heat on the highest flame. Add 1 to 2 sliced green chilies and 1 tablespoon minced garlic. [I also use 1 strand each of star anise, mace, and javitri. You can omit the sauces and still flavor the noodles with these spices. ].

    6. Just for a minute, fry the garlic until it begins to smell good. If you don’t want to use any hot sauce, make sure you use enough green chilies for the heat; otherwise, the noodles will be very bland.

    Noodles: You can use any type of noodle for this recipe, including whole grain, hakka, egg, and soba varieties. I have used soba noodles here.

    The primary cause of the smoky flavor in Chinese food is a high flame. Therefore, the vegetable noodles must be prepared over a high flame just like any other Chinese dishes.

    Wok: The majority of Chinese restaurants use a carbon steel wok, which also aids in frying the food and gives it a smoky flavor. For cooking at home, a heavy skillet or bare cast iron skillet also works well. Pour the vinegar over the noodles rather than the pan if using bare cast iron cookware.

    Any Chinese noodle dish that wants to have an umami flavor must use soy sauce as a primary ingredient. Choose organic or naturally brewed soya sauce for health reasons. You can also use tamari or coconut aminos. Alternatively, omit all of these and simply use the appropriate quantities of oil, salt, and green chilies.

    Other sauce: I haven’t included any sauces here, but you can easily add your preferred sauce, such as sriracha, chilli sauce, or schezwan sauce. You can also omit all of the sauces and simply include some garlic, a single strand of mace, and a star anise. These impart a wonderful aroma to the vegetable noodles.

  • Once the noodles are drained to the colander, rinse them well under cold water. Please check the pack of your noodles. Some kind of noodles turn limpy when put under cold water. So they should not be rinsed.
  • You can also smear 1 tbsp oil to the cooked noodles to prevent them from turning sticky.
