Satay Noodles - Stir fried Noodles in a Peanut Sauce

When I made the Satay Peanut Sauce as a dip a few weeks ago, I knew I will be using this sauce in many other forms. My first thought was to add to Noodles. I was right. It was just perfect. The only thing that I will change to this recipe is to add some crushed Peanuts or may be use some chunky peanut butter sauce instead of creamy. Lip smacking goodness!!


Noodles/Spaghetti 250 gm
Cabbage 1/2 a small one (about 2-3 cups)
Carrots 2 grated
Spring onions - to garnish
Oil and salt to taste

For the sauce
Onions 1
Garlic 4 pods
Ginger 1 inch piece
Peanut butter 1/4 cup
Chilli powder 2 tsp (less for milder version)
Sugar 1 tsp
Salt 1/2 tsp
Soy Sauce 2 tbsp
Lemon Juice 2 tbsp
Water 1.5 cups

Method of Preparation

1. Heat some water in a big pot. Bring it to boil. Salt it. Add the Spaghetti (broken to 2-3 pieces). Give it a stir. Cook for 11-13 min (follow package instructions). Drain and keep aside. Work on the rest of the dish while the noodles are cooking.

2. In a wok/pan, heat some oil. When it is hot, add the shredded (I kept it 2-3 inches long) and grated carrots (use big size grater). Saute for a few minutes till it is wilted, but still slighty crunchy. Remove from pan and keep aside.

3. Heat more oil in the pan. Add sliced garlic and ginger.

4. When it sizzles, add the sliced onions. Saute till it turns brown.

5. Add the peanut butter, sugar, salt and chilli powder. Give it a stir.

6. Add 1 cup of water. Mix well. Add the other half cup (or more) if need be. I used 1.5 cups of water. Bring to boil. Switch off.

7. Add soy sauce and lemon juice. Mix. Sauce is ready.

8. Now toss in the cooked noodles. Once mixed, add the cabbage and carrots and mix well. Garnish with spring onions.
