Korean Stir Fry Noodles

Korean Stir Fry Noodles

This simple noodle and vegetable dish available in most road side stalls. It is an easy way to reuse your leftover vegetables (and even leftover chicken or meat) into a tasty meal. I like to use rice noodles in this recipe, but you can also use buckwheat noodles. This fast and healthy main course meal is an ideal dish for lazy chefs like my son. And the whole credit of Innovating this dish goes to him.
