If there is one dish that I absolutely love in this world then that is Chilly Garlic Noodles ! It’s not just palatable, it also reminds me of some wonderful times that I have spent with my 2 crazy girlfriends cooking this back at home. So, we had this ritual going on every other weekend. Me and my one friend would prepare these noodles at my place while the other friend who dislikes cooking would help us with the garlic chopping. Yes, it was a big deal because there is lots of garlic to be chopped for this recipe. Wish I had this back then – Chef’n GarlicZoom Garlic Chopper (X-Large). This surely would have made our lives so much easier.
We were very secretive about this meal because we didn’t want to share it with anyone else. It was only reserved for us. Since we were lazy to chop veggies, we would omit them from the recipe. Occasionally we would mushrooms, green peas and bell peppers to give it more flavor. Once done, we would relish these noodles together as we watched some chick flick on TV. It was an evening very well spent. I so miss those days and my girls! This recipe belongs to my partner in crime. She introduced these noodles to us and we are eternally thankful to her. She is an amazing home chef too. I have learnt a lot from her. Today I am going to let you in to our world and show you how to make the world’s best Chilly Garlic Noodles! I have used these noodles in this recipe. You can get it here – Ching’s Secret Hakka Veg Noodles, Made with 100% Durum Wheat / 600g., 21.1oz. Value Pack!
These noodles are different from spaghetti. Its thicker and tastes different. Healthy Pink Spaghetti loaded with Veggies and Whole Wheat Spaghetti with Veggies are some recipes you may like if you are a fan of spaghetti too. Ching’s noodles are also prepared in a similar way. I made this recipe exactly how we used to make it back then for old times sake. The process is very simple. Cook the noodles as per the instructions on the pack, mince garlic using Chef’n GarlicZoom Garlic Chopper (X-Large) & chop mushrooms, spring onions and bell peppers using this Vidalia Chop Wizard. In a pan, warm the oil, fry the garlic for a minute, add and saute the veggies along with green peas, salt, red pepper flakes and Chinese salt. Once the veggies are cooked, add the boiled noodles to it and give it a good mix.
Chilly Garlic noodles are done! Without much ado, devour them immediately! At-least that is what I would do. These noodles are very special. Love the pungent, burnt garlic flavor in it, the veggies do full justice to the dish and make it even more delicious, luscious, mouth-watering and delectable. Yes, I am crazy about these noodles. 🙂
