Veggie Szechuan Noodles

If you are looking for a quick and spicy dinner option then here is a perfect dinner for a relaxing weekend ! Spicy veggie szechuan noodles is a popular Indo-Chinese street food in India and relished by everyone. Thin noodles combined with veggies are tossed in hot and fiery szechuan sauce making it a delicious and flavorful vegan meal! To enjoy the spicy flavor of szechuan sauce with noodles, I choose to add just bell peppers, onion and cabbage but feel free to add veggies of your choice. 

Homemade szechuan sauce was used to prepare this d-licious noodles but store bought szechuan sauce can be used to save some time doing the basics. All the hard work goes in thinly slicing the veggies, rest is easy and quick. I have used rice vinegar in the recipe but it can be substituted with regular vinegar. Spiciness in the sauce can be adjusted with sugar.

Like crunchy veggies in noodles, then saute your vegetables for a minute before adding sauces. After mixing in the sauces, water was added – this way noodles get a nice coating of the sauces and tastes juicy. Allow the noodles to sit in the pan for a while before serving and let it soak in all the flavors. This way it taste better and leftovers even taste yummier the next day – perfect tiffin meal.  🙂

    wonder if zucchini noodles would work?

    • RK says:

      Thanks for stopping by Joan. Have never worked with zucchini noodles. All I can suggest is after mixing in all the sauces – SKIP PART 13 where I have asked to add water. Just add the noodles, mix and take it off the flame. Hope that helps!

    I am a regular visitor of your blog and have tried some of your recipes which were all a hit. Like this recipe so much and tried it last week. Absolutely delicious. I love the combinations of the fresh veggies and added some fried tofu to the recipe. It made the noodles more healthier, tastier and nutritious. Szechuan sauce was perfect and not to overpowering. All thanks to you.

    Was just wondering what brand noodles have u used and also if u don’t mind,from which store.
    Normally I use the Chings Hakka noodles from the Indian store,which i’m not liking off late,came off as very stale,so thats why just curious as to which one to use as my kids love noodles.
