Thanksgiving is coming up. Usually we are going to end up with some leftovers after the great thanksgiving meal. And in today’s post we are going to turn that leftovers into a healthy meal, Spicy Beef Noodle Stir-fry. We had some leftover beef curry from yesterday. And some noodles had been sitting in my shelf for almost 1 month which is not a usual thing in this home. I don’t know why, but somehow I totally forgot about the noodle packet.
In one of my earlier posts, I had shared the tasty and spicy beef curry recipe made without any store-bought curry powders. And I love the smell of real spices so much. My house smells like a spice house while making this savory delicious beef curry. You can find the recipe for our spicy Kerala style beef curry in the link below.
Since a little of this beef curry with some gravy was left for today which is not enough to satisfy three of us and we found our forgotten noodles in the shelf, we prepared a makeover dish- Spicy Beef Noodle Stir-fry. Since we are using the leftovers, the recipe is pretty simple enough. Just mixing everything together is not a hard work. But if you are starting from the beginning, I mean, making the beef curry first, then it’s a little hard work (still not too much work).
We are not using any additional taste makers which usually contains MSG in the making of spicy beef noodle stir-fry. The spices in the beef curry is enough to add a big spicy flavor. We also used some frozen green peas to add some color to the dish. All ingredients when combined together makes a spicy healthy meal.

into the beef-peas mix before tossing the noodle. This will help prevent the noodles from sticking together.
