Yaki Udon (Stir-fried udon noodles)

I love noodles. I love them dry and spicy. Stir-fried. With chillies. Ramen. Instant mee. Bee Tai Mak. Spaghetti. Bee hoon.

There are so many different ways to dish out noodle recipes, but this recipe has got to be one of my favourites. Unlike most Japanese dishes which cook udon with a soup base, this one stir-fries udon with a delicious gravy that makes it easy to slurp up. And once you start, you won’t be able to stop.

Warning: It’s addictive. But it’s worth the risk!
