Curried Chicken Teriyaki Noodles

Curried Chicken Teriyaki with egg Noodles

I have this craving for "Anything Teriyaki" since I first tasted this dish at Chinese buffet. They had many varieties of chicken dishes like, ginger chicken, sesame chicken, orange chicken, barbeque chicken, honey chicken but I liked teriyaki chicken the most for its unique asian flavors. My version of teriyaki chicken is with egg noodles and few veggies and some dash of Indian flavors as I like my chicken to be little spicy.

You will find most of my recipes little spicy and hot as I love hot food. One can substitute the chicken with prawns/shrimps, tofu/soya chunks/mealmaker (for
vegans). This is very quick and easy recipe for a lazy dinner; if you are really tired to cut those veggies, you can simply opt them out or use frozen vegetables, any which way works out great!

Hi Padma,
Came to your blog for the 1st time, am going thru all the lovely pics and recipes....
was wondering which brand of baby corn was that? it looked so fresh and yummy, all I see is the canned version or baby corn mixed with other veggies in the frozen section.
Thanks,
Jayashree
