I love the idea of the mixture of curry in this traditional udon noodle recipe! If you haven't tried udon noodles: they are a thick noodle used in many Asian recipes

Tastes just like the soup I buy at my favourite Japanese restaurant! I did however make it in a much smaller portion, skipped the syrup and used about half the required stock. It makes it thicker and the flavours stronger. Add veggies and life is perfect.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a 2 quart saucepan, heat the oil. Add the flour and cook, stirring for a minute over low heat. Add the curry powder and cook another minute. Whisk in the hot vegetable stock all at once: it will thicken almost instantaneously. Add the soy sauce and syrup and cook until thick enough to coat the back of a wooden spoon.
  2. Cook the udon noodles in a large pot of boiling water. When al dente, drain well, rinse and place into 4 large bowls. Fill each bowl with curry sauce, top with scallions and serve immediately.
