    Hot and Sour Noodles Recipe – Just Like the Restaurants Make It

Notes

  1. To make non-sticky noodles, do not overcook them in step-2. Cook them until they are cooked but not mushy. Do not forget to pour cold water over noodles after cooking to remove excess starch.
  2. This is my absolute favorite ingredients combination, but feel free to use any vegetables or protein that you have on hand. Instead of chicken, you can use firm tofu to make it vegetarian. You can also use prawns or thinly sliced beef.
  3. As for the vegetables, don’t omit the crispy onion and capsicum. For variation, add baby corns, red and yellow capsicum, mushrooms or any other vegetables of your choice.
  4. You can use either green chilli sauce or hot pepper sauce sauce per your preference. Hot Pepper sauce sauce will help you get the typical restaurant color.
  5. Adjust quantity of hot sauce and soy sauce per your taste. Do not add more soy sauce as it tastes bitter and it will change the taste of noodles.
  6. All vegetables and noodles must be tossed over over high-flame to get restaurant like taste and texture.
  7. This dish is not very good after reheating because the noodles absorb the sauce and become mushy and the whole dish is just a little dry. If you want to make it ahead, store the sauce separately and combine only before serving.
