Read the complete post above for better understanding and tips on noodles and other substitutes in the recipe.

    Preparing Noodles in Instant Pot

    • Keep all the vegetables washed, chopped as directed, and other condiments ready for the recipe.
    • Place inner pot inside the IP and plug it in. Press SAUTE & set it on HIGH. Once the screen displays HOT, add oil to it. After few seconds, add thinly sliced onions to it along with ginger paste and garlic paste. Now saute for 2 minutes. Add carrots to it. And saute for 1 more minute on high.
    • Further add dark soy sauce, Teriyaki Sauce, Sambel Olek/Sriracha to it. Mix well and scrape the bottom of the pan well.
    • Now add the hakka noodle rounds on top and make sure to spread them out well. Check the picture in the post above. Pour the Vegetable stock on top of it.
    • Close the lid of the IP and set it on SEALING. Press the Pressure cook button and set on HIGH for 1 minute. Why 1 minute? The noodles I used said to be boiled for 3 minutes on the gas top. Therefore I halved the time and pressure cooked for 1 minute.
    • Once the timer goes off, do QPR (quick pressure release). Open the lid. And mix well with the IP tongs. It will still be slightly liquidy. No worries on that. The noodles will eventually soak it all up. The noodles are al-dente at this point.
    • Add the rest of the vegetables to the Instant Pot. Close the lid again but keep the vent to venting. Let it sit for 3-4 minutes. It will let the vegetables steam well inside with still a good bite.
    • Open the lid. Take the tongs and mix the vegetables & noodles well.
    • Add sesame seeds, squeeze the lime juice and add cilantro leaves on top. Toss well. Your Instant Pot Teriyaki Noodles are ready to be served.
    • NOTE - If you are using the frozen vegetables, then use the thawed vegetables. Either microwave these or take them out in advance. Add these to the noodles. Close the lid as instructed above.

    Notes

    What kind of noodles to use for this recipe?

    Make sure that-
    1. These are preferably round in shape. Because of their shape, they do not stick to each other and come out beautifully separated. 
    2. The noodles should preferably be made with Wheat flour for this recipe.
    3. Use the noodles that cook fast.
    4. I have used HIMALAYAN DELIGHT VEGETARIAN HAKKA NOODLES for this recipe. And it comes out excellent every single time. You may use any noodles that are good for chow-mein or lo-mein. Just spread them out like you do in pasta and then separate them after cooking.

    What can I use if I cannot find the round hakka noodles?

    Although my first preference is the round shaped quick cooking Hakka Noodles, but here is what I suggest will work fine.
    1. Spaghetti - use the kind that cooks fast. 
    2. Loosely packed Noodles that cook quick (not ramen).

    Can I use frozen vegetables for this recipe?

    Yes you can. Make sure to thaw the frozen vegetables before adding. Or else it takes for ever to cook them in closed lid and by that time noodles get mushed. You can use small frozen bag of oriental or Asian stir fry mix vegetables.

    Can I adjust the seasoning in the recipe?

    I am a huge advocate of personalizing the recipes. Although the flavors and seasonings in this recipe hit the spot right, but you can definitely add more later on like soy sauce, vinegar and hot sauce. It is better to cook with apt amount of seasoning and then add more later if needed. 
    My kids love the level of spices and flavors in it.

    No salt in the recipe?

    Since most of the condiments and stock used in the recipe already have so much salt, I did not feel any need to add more salt to it. If you think you want more salt then add later. My bet is that you will be fine without adding more.
