Extra crunch + nutrition value

  • 3 Tablespoons White Sesame Seeds


  1. Mix all ingredients under ‘sauce base‘ to form a smooth mixture and set aside
  2. Toast the sesame seeds until they’re golden, aromatic and crunchy. Set aside to cool
  3. Boil noodles until just cooked, run it through cold water, drain it, add a couple of teaspoons oil and mix it through the noodles to prevent them from sticking
  4. Meanwhile, heat 1 Tablespoon of Sesame Oil (or any neutral oil) in a Wok or a pan with high sides
  5. Add the ginger, garlic, chilli and fry on a few seconds
  6. Add the white part of scallions (or spring onions) and flash-fry on high heat for 1-2 minutes
  7. Add rest of the vegetables and mung sprouts
  8. Fry on high heat for 4-5 minutes until the vegetables have a slight caramelization around them
  9. Add the sauce base, half of the toasted sesame seeds, salt and pepper
  10. Mix with the vegetables along with a splash of water to adjust consistency (if required)
  11. Add the cooked noodles and toss well with the vegetable mixture
  12. Taste and adjust for seasoning, if required
  13. Garnish with the green part of the spring onion (scallion)
  14. Garnish with remaining toasted sesame seeds and serve hot


  • I used Soba Noodles. Whichever noodles you choose, cook according to package instructions
  • You can use tahini or Chinese sesame paste for the sauce base. Or you can simply grind toasted white sesame seeds until a paste is formed and use that instead
  • This recipe is medium-spicy. Use more green chili if you like your food even spicier 
  • Use fresh, seasonal vegetables that are typically used in stir-fries 
  • You can portion it and store it in the refrigerator for a week. Heat it up for a quick weekday meal
