How to make ramen stir fry?
This is so quick and easy to make this ramen noodle stir fry. This is just 2 steps process.
Step 1 - Boil Noodle
In a large pot add the noodles and water with a little salt. Boil them till cooked al dente. Then strain out them using a colander. Then immediately wash it under tap water to stop additional cooking. Add 1 tbsp oil to the noodles and mix all gently. This will stop sticking of the noodle.
Step 2 - Vegetable stir-fry
In a wok or skillet, heat oil. Then sauté onion, crushed ginger, garlic, and onions for some time. Then add vegetables and stir-fry for 5 minutes on high heat. For that don't take large-sized pieces.
Toss Them Well
Then add sauces and noodles. Give them a nice stir mixing all ingredients. Keep the flame on high while doing so. Stir-frying is best on high heat only.
Take soft vegetables preferably. If taking any hard vegetables, cook them 70% before adding other soft vegetables.
Chop, and slice the veggies thin so that stir-frying won't take a long time.
Wash off noodles after cooking. This is important. Otherwise, it will be overcooked even after removing it from heat. Rub a little oil to avoid getting sticky with each other.
Which vegetables go well with ramen noodle stir-fry?
You can add a lot many vegetables to this dish. Some common ones are broccoli, mushrooms, zucchini, carrots, bak choy, beans, mushrooms, etc. For flavor, we add ginger, garlic, onions, green onions, etc.
What sauce to use for this ramen noodle?
For this recipe, I have taken low-sodium soy sauce, hot sauce, and tomato ketchup. Tomato ketchup has sugar and so I am not adding any sweetness to it. And I don't like it to be sweet also. If you prefer a little sweetness, add hoisin sauce or brown sugar.
How to store the leftovers?
It keeps well for 4 - 5 days in an airtight box. Also freezer-friendly and can be stored for up to 2 months in an air-tight freezer box. To reheat, thaw for some time. Then microwave for 1 minute. Or stir-fry till hot.
Why do my noodles turn sticky after being drained?
Even after you cook al dente and remove it from hot water, it is still hot and keeps on cooking at its temperature for some time. This overcooks the noodles and makes them soft and starchy. Hence it start sticking to each other. Hence it's important to wash off the noodles after they are removed from the heat to cool down their temperature.
