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
- 4 tablespoons oil
- 1⁄2 cup flour, plus
- 2 tablespoons flour
- 1 -2 tablespoon curry powder
- 5 cups vegetable stock or 5 cups mushroom stock
- 4 tablespoons soy sauce
- 2 teaspoons maple syrup or 2 teaspoons other artificial sweetener
- 8 -10 ounces udon noodles
- water, for boiling udon noodles
- 3 -4 scallions or 3 -4 green onions, chopped
- 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.
- 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.
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.
This recipe was amazing! I cut the oil and stock, used brown rice udon and added steamed cauliflower and toasted sesame.
While the taste is pretty good, I would have preferred the sauce thicker and with rice..
