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 noodle 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, 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 noodle. 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, slice the veggies thin so that stir frying won't take long time.
Wash off noodles after cooking. This is important. Otherwise, it will be overcooked even after removing it from heat. Rub little oil to avoid from getting sticky with each other.

What sauce to use for this ramen noodle?
For this recipe, I have taken low sodium soy sauce, hot sauce, 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 leftover?
It keeps well for 4 - 5 days in an air tight box. Also freezer friendly and can be stored up to 2 months in air tight freezer box. To reheat, thaw for sometime. Them microwave for 1 minutes. Or stir-fry till hot.
Why my noodle turn sticky after 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 noodle and makes them soft and starchy. Hence it starts 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.
