Garlic and Spring Onion Noodles

Garlic and Spring Onion Noodles bursting with garlic flavour with the crunch of spring onions and sesame seeds. 

These are no fuss noodles and can be made in jiffy. These pair up so well with any stir fry or asian curry. Or relish these just like that with some refreshing drink. Prepared within 30 minutes these no fuss noodles are a perfect to make for your parties and potlucks.


Made these noodles few days back when there was a sudden demand from kids for noodles. There were no bell peppers or cabbage in refrigerator. Used lot of garlic for the flavour it with spring onions, I paired it with broccoli and mushroom stir-fry in chinese sauces. A quick and hearty meal that was ready in just 30 mins..

What can be paired up with these Noodles.You can also pair it with Chilli Paneer(or add tofu for vegan version) or kids favourite Vegetable Manchurian.

These noodles bursting with taste of garlic reminded me of the Delhi Chinese thellas(carts) that serve one of the best chowmeins and other variety of noodles..Have to you ever tried the Chinese stuff that is served in Delhi as street food.. Trust me that is something which can beat even the best Chinese joints and was a rescuer in my hostel days in Delhi for the sudden hunger cravings. The thellas are out there till late at night and you can see lot of bachelors coming back from office  or staying in nearby hostels  lined to enjoy the stuff.  Piping hot noodles with hot and soup used to be a delight in chilli Delhi winters.. If you haven’t tried yet and if you are going to visit Delhi keep it in your do list.. or make these noodles as these are just like the ones you get there.

Garlic and Green Onion Noodles Ingredients.

A big wok or non-stick/heavy pan is needed to cook noodles. First of all cook noodles in lots of water until al-dente. Drain noodles when cooked and always spread in a flat plate,add a tsp of oil and keep aside. This prevents the noodles sticky noodles.

I have used Angel Hair Spaghetti to make these. You can use any noodles of your choice Chings, Soba or the Udon noodles. Even the zoodles(Zucchini Noodles work fine here)/

For the sauces, soy sauce is a must add along with sriracha/chilli sauce. I added a  bit of Tomato sauce, vinegar use any(I used apple cider yes that also works fine) and sugar or any natural sweetener(I used Agave Nectar), this is totally optional.

Sesame seeds add the toasted flavour with slight crunch and freshly crushed black pepper combine with garlicky to enhance the flavor.

Use lots of garlic. I loved this simpler version as I could taste the tiny garlic bites which would have been lost if I added more vegetables  just like  the Chowmein . Spring onions add the much need  crunch, use both parts.. the white and the green part.

Vegetables and Protein… adapt the recipe as per your liking, add more veggies like Cabbage, Bok Choy, bell peppers, mushrooms, carrots or paneer, tofu(for vegan version) or even chicken or any other non-vegetarian meat.

  1. We love simple, stir-fried noodles at home, and I make them quite often. This one sounds right up our alley!
    I can imagine how flavourful these noodles would have been, with the spring onion and garlic going in. Love the presentation of the dish – lovely, as usual. 🙂

  2. Love the quick recipe and my go to choice when I am bored of cooking regular meals of dal roti sabzi at home. The house smells great when Garlic Noodles are cooked, makes you hungry! Have you used Soba Noodles for the recipe as I read its Gluten Free.

    1. Thanks Vidya.. Yes have used it once just to test how they taste..these are good but kids like the texture and find angel hair spaghetti more palatable,that we get here..it is made with wheat and Semolina so I use only that for noodles prep.. stopped using the Ching’s ones made with maida..
