Weekend Lunch Series: Madras Curry Noodles


A very simple dish to kick off the weekend lunch- Madras style Curried Noodles with peas. I tried this using some onion and garlic powder I needed to get rid of and the result was surprisingly good....try this no-fuss version for a quick and tasty meal- a hit with the kiddos especially mine, they don't like bits of onions or garlic in their meals...!

Yes, you can call them "Chennai" Noodles as well :)

You will need:

  • 2 fistfuls of Spaghettini noodles- broken in small pieces, you can use regular Spaghetti or Udon Noodles if you wish.
  • 1/2 cup: Frozen peas
  • 1-2 tbsp- Madras Curry Powder
  • 1 tbsp- Low Sodium Soy Sauce
  • 1 tsp- Garlic and Onion Powder
  • 1 small red chili pepper- diced
  • 1 tbsp- Peanut or Sesame Oil
  • 2-3 tbsp: Water
  • 1 tsp Cornstarch dissolved in some water
  • 1/4 tsp- turmeric
Cook the noodles according to package directions, and drain. Do not rinse them. In a wok or pan, heat the oil, add the red chili pepper and the frozen peas, stir fry really well. In a separate bowl, mix together the water, curry powder, soy sauce, garlic,onion and the cornstarch powder. Mix it really well. Add the cooked noodles to the pan, stir fry for 2-3 minutes, and then add the curried mix. Add some more seasonings if you'd like. Add the turmeric powder now and cook until everything comes together.You can add a bit more water if you would like a little gravy with these noodles, just adjust the spices accordingly. Garnish with green chilies or cilantro.

Serve hot and enjoy.

A very easy and delicious looking recipe Trupti... Just like the 2 minute noodles after a long tired day.

Kay said...

really? madras noodles, too?

I mean, I've seen srilankan noodles and singaporean noodles and had them too. Former is way too spicy for me, later was pretty good...but this is the first time, I'm hearing about the madras noodles. Got to try it sometime. :)

Hi, Trupti!

I lived in Chennai for over 2 years in the 1990's but never came across Madras Curry Noodles, so it was really cool to see a recipe for it on your blog! I will definitely have to try it.

This evening I was searching for a Fruit salad recipe when I came across your profile at "Food For Thought". I was so excited when I saw your name, you're going places girl, I am so excited for you!!!
