About this baby corn noodles recipe

I have used some simple, honest flavours in this preparation. It’s really easy to put this together to a complete, one-pot meal. Onions, capsicum, and baby corn, cooked in soy sauce form the soul of this noodle dish. There are some wonderful textures in this dish. The main contributor is the baby corn with it’s lovely, crunchy texture.

I thought I’ll brighten up with some colours after a busy, tiring day, and ended up using green, yellow, and red capsicum in my noodles. If you can get hold of them in different colours, you’ll have a rather colourful bowl of noodles like mine. But if you decide to have only one variety, there is absolutely no problems with taste.

We are not going to spend a lot of time prepping the ingredients. Quarter the onions, slice the capsicum (bell peppers), and chop the baby corn. Fry finely chopped garlic and ginger in some olive oil (or any vegetable oil of your choice). Add the prepped ingredients to this, and fry till onions are cooked to tender. Now add corn flour, soy sauce, water, and salt. This is where the magic happens! Baby corn will soak in the soy sauce flavour, and the corn flour in water will hold this dish together. Now add the cooked noodles, stir gently to evenly distribute the baby corn mix. That’s it! Garnish with some spring onions and serve hot!

Recipe Notes
  1. While cooking noodles, add a teaspoon of oil to the boiling water so that they don't stick together when you drain them.
  2. You can add other sauces while cooking the baby corn. But be cautious about the salt levels as some of them, like oyster sauce, have enough salt in it already.
  3. Capsicum in different colours is not mandatory. Use the ones you have. This doesn't affect the taste at all.

      Thank you Dalal. 🙂 It did come out well – crispy baby corn, and flavourful noodles!

  7. It definitely looks like a colourful and delicious dish that you can easily spice up according to your preference! Baby corns are also heavily underrated and underused so props to you for including them!
