I heard this on the Play Me A Recipe podcast and had to make right away as I had the ingredients on hand. It was both easy and delicious, a winning combo especially on a busy weekday for dinner. I just had the leftovers for lunch. A repeat for sure!

Just made this for dinner. What a winner! Hubs loved it as did I. I thought the sauce was a little dry so added more chutney and soy sauce until I felt it was enough. WOW thank you!

Lovely, Lululand! Thank you for your comment and trying this recipe. Even I like to smother my noodles in the sauce.

Saw this this morning and tried it tonight. Everyone in the family loved it! I used carrots, mushrooms, bell peppers, shallots, and snap peas and combined them with some leftover rice noodles. Will definitely make again.

Chili powders and chilies confuse me. Since this is an Indian dish should I be looking for an Indian chili powder? Or am I to use Cayenne powder? I made this and used a standard chili powder (like one used for making a beef chili), not much flavor and no heat. Thanks! I love noodles, want to get this right.

Hello, thank you for your question, tosacem! Yes, please try using cayenne powder or any chile powder as long as it packs some heat to add flavor. It does not have to be from an Indian chile powder. Generally I end up using Indian red chile powder for this recipe as that is the one which use in my everyday cooking. Good luck and keep me posted!

This recipe ticks a lot of boxes for me. it's easy to prepare, doesn't require a lot of oils/fats & leaves me feeling less weighted down than curries yet still satisfies my peanut fix. One thing I learned--which is no fault of the recipe's but rather a reflection of my own inexperience--is that habanero chile powder is not a good one-to-one substitute for regular chile powder. Even w/ the added heat, however, I found it delicious & am definitely adding it to my rotation (& not just because I have a tone of leftover soba noodles!).

Thank you Yiannis! Habanero chile powder must have imparted some hot brilliance to the dish.

Really delicious. I added some CSA carrots and used the broccoli stems as well- just blanched them first in the noodle pot. Served with a sesame cucumber salad. 10/10 would make again.

Thank you, Vanessa. Carrots and broccoli stems are wonderful alternatives. Your comment reminds me that I should add a note about substitutes to the recipe. Thank you for that.

Are raw peanuts readily available besides online? Can another peanut be substituted?
Annada R. June 16, 2019
Hello! Yes, raw peanuts are available in Asian & international grocery stores. Also you can substitute salted peanuts for raw peanuts. Just don’t add salt in the peanut chutney.

So tasty! I forgot the salt at first and it was good even without. Used whole cumin (just tossed in with the peanuts) and it turned out great. Deceptively simple-definitely a keeper.

Thank you so much! Glad you liked it! The noodles taste super the next day too. Also could you make the fresh red chile sauce? It goes very well with these noodles.
