  • 1 tbsp minced garlic

To begin, read the instructions on the packaging of your chosen noodles. Prepare the noodles according to these instructions. I slightly undercooked the noodles until they were chewy.

Once the noodles are cooked, rinse them under cold water and then set them aside.

recipe step 1

Finely chop the onions or shallots, and cilantro/coriander leaves, and mince the garlic cloves to make the seasoning.

Transfer them to a large heat-proof bowl or a shallow plate. Also, add the chili flakes and a pinch of sugar and salt.

Heat oil in a pot on medium or medium-high heat. It will take around 3 to 4 minutes. Once you start seeing small bubbles, the oil is ready.

To check, you can add a small piece of garlic and if it immediately sizzles, the oil is at the right temperature.

Turn off the heat, and pour the sizzling hot oil over the seasoning mixture.

step 8
  • To make it more wholesome, add some protein such as grilled tofu, cottage cheese, chicken, or shrimp into the dish.
  • Make it spicy, by adding more chili flakes or hot chili sauce.
  • Choose noodles of your choice for this recipe such as knife-cut noodles, wheat noodles, rice noodles, zucchini noodles, instant noodles, etc.
  • Try to use fresh lime or lemon juice for the fresh tangy flavor.
  • Top it off with crushed nuts or chili oil crisps to add some crunch.
  • Make it creamy, by adding some grated parmesan cheese.
  • You can also try adding a spoonful of curry powder for a twist.
