This is a very simple dish, that can be prepared quickly and cheaply. If you can’t find Udon noodles, why don’t you use Spaghetti? Most stir-fried Udon dishes can be made with Spaghetti. I usually use a small (95g) canned tuna, but you may wish to add more tuna, and extra vegetables. The sauce is enough for the extra ingredients, so feel free to do so. I am confident that you will enjoy this dish.


2 Servings


1/2 Onion *sliced
1 clove Garlic *finely chopped
1 tablespoon Canola OR Olive Oil
Chilli Flakes OR Fresh Chilli as required

  1. Make sauce by mixing all the sauce ingredients in a small bowl.
