Udon noodles is a Japanese wheat noodles eaten hot or cold as a soup, stir fry or a salad. It is rich in protein, fiber and nutrients. The chewy texture and somewhat neutral flavor of these noodles make it a great accompaniment to protein dishes like chicken or pork. You can buy fresh udon noodles, frozen or dried ones. Personally I like the fresh ones the best as they cook really quickly. Although udon noodles has a high carbohydrate content, the use of different vegetables make it a much healthier and fiber rich dish @sarchakra
