Here’s my take on Stir Fried Udon Noodles aka Yaki Udon. I love making noodles a lot, and one of my favourite cuisine for noodles is always Japanese. I wanted to make my Stir Fried Udon Noodles the traditional Yaki Udon style with your basic vegetables like cabbage, bell peppers and a simple sauce. As always, tweaked this Stir Fried Udon Noodles recipe to add some more veggies and added more flavour to my Udon sauce.

Do try out this Stir Fried Udon Noodles recipe and I really hope you enjoy it. It’s got a wonderful balance of taste and textures, and very easy to put together. And I would highly recommend having this with Chili Garlic Oil. It’s so enjoyable with it and adds that extra umaminess to it.
