Tips for Making Homemade Noodles:
It only requires a small amount of flour, salt, and eggs to make a workable dough in a bowl. Then roll, cut, and boil!.
No, you can immediately cook fresh pasta in a pot of boiling water or soup broth. Fresh noodles only take about 3 minutes to cook, though. To avoid overcooking your pasta, be aware of the shorter cooking time.
The best classic chicken noodle soup is made with homemade noodles, and I have a great recipe for it.
The noodles can be prepared immediately by boiling them for 3 minutes in hot water or soup broth, or you can let them dry overnight and then freeze them for up to 3 months in an airtight container. In order to have extra to store in the freezer for later, I like to make this recipe in large batches.

1. To cook noodles, bring a large pot to a boil with 5 cups of water. Drop the noodles into the water once it starts to boil quickly, and cook them until they are al dente according to the directions on your package of noodles. I prepared organic soba noodles according to the recipe’s instructions, which call for cooking them for four minutes. Do not overcook as they turn mushy.
2. While the noodles cook, thoroughly wash the vegetables in running water.
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.
7. I skipped onions. If you are using, throw them for one or two minutes. We want the onions to be crunchy and not soft. Next add all the veggies.
8. Fry stirring often for 2 to 3 minutes. Don’t overcook the vegetables; we want them to be crunchy, not mushy or soft.
Keep in mind that the flame and heat must be at their highest levels for the noodles to smell smokey.
9. Add the prepared noodles along with 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon black pepper. Pour soya sauce, hot sauce and vinegar around the pan. I omitted the sauces and only added some apple cider vinegar to the top. If you’d like, you can also add 1 teaspoon of toasted sesame oil for flavor. Because the sauces contain some salt, use caution when adding salt.
10. Stir-fry for 2 minutes without burning after tossing or mixing. Turn off the heat.
I made some fried eggs in the same pan. Transfer the noodles to serving plates. Add 2 tsp oil to the hot pan. Simply place your egg in the hot pan and cook it slowly until the yolk is nearly set. Turn it to the otherside and cook until done. Sprinkle some salt and pepper. You can view this post on fried eggs for detailed photos. Serve vegetable noodles hot or warm.
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.
