Stir Fry with Ramen Noodles Recipe! Easy, Cheap, and Quick!

If you know me personally, then it come to no surprise that the kitchen is very foreign to me.  I struggle to cook and lack a lot of common sense when it comes to making meals unless given clear instructions and someone to help ensure I don't burn anything or myself.  However, I do love East-Asian food and wanted to try stir fry with ramen to make it a little fancier than it is.  A lot of the online recipes discuss using or making soy sauce which I didn't do.  Therefore, this is as simple as stir fry ramen can be! It's a quick and easy way to make ramen seem gourmet.


2 Packets Ramen with flavoring packets


Sunflower/Cooking Oil
Green Chillies*: 0-3 depending on preference
Chopped garlic: 2 cloves
Chopped Onions: About 1/4th
Frozen or Fresh Vegetables: Two handfulls 


Chilli Powder*
Seasoning oil* or Chilli Oil* 

*Starred ingredients are optional! 

Total time taken: 15-20 minutes

The very first step is to chop up your garlic cloves, chillis, and onion! 

Keep the flavoring packets that come with the ramen noodles to the side for now! 

Next, open up the ramen and soak it in hot water (no need to turn on the stove).  This will soften the noodles enough when it comes to mixing and frying it with the vegetables and flavourings.  

Put a dollop of the oil of your choice into a heated pan on the stove. 

Add the onions first to fry on a medium heat.  

After the onions are slightly brown, add the garlic and chillies.

Immediately add one of the seasoning packets of ramen and some chilli powder and turn down the heat to low. 

After about 2 minutes, everything should look very scrumptious! 

I am using frozen vegetables but you can use fresh ones if they are available to you.  Choose vegetables that you like and prefer.  Here, I just have peas, carrots, and beans. 

Yummy!  Make sure that your vegetables are thoroughly cooked and coated with all of the seasoning we mixed in earlier. 

By now, our noodles would have softened enough.  Drain the noodles of water and add it into our stir fry and mix thoroughly!

Add the second seasoning packet that came with the ramen, alongside salt, pepper, seasoning oil, and extra chilli powder depending on how spicy you like your food.  Mix everything thoroughly until you are satisfied on a medium-low heat to ensure your noodles don't burn. 

And that's the final product! 

I personally like to eat this with Achaar/Naga pickle on the side for added flavour but I do believe it tastes delightful on it's own.  If you're on a budget, but want to treat yourself, and you've got a few extra minutes to spare, I highly recommend trying out this recipe! You can swap in flavouring/seasonings to suit your preference.
