Spicy Thick and Chewy Potato Noodles
This recipe brings back so many childhood memories for me. It's like a cozy hug every time I make it, reminding me of how my mom used to do it. If you've never had potato noodles, you're in for a treat. They're seriously the best kind of noodles in my opinion. They have this chewy, thick texture that's not just yummy but also really fun to eat. Plus, they go great with any sauce you like. Give it a try - I'm sure you'll love it as much as I do.
ACTIVE TIME: 35 MINS
TOTAL TIME: 1 hour
- 4 cloves of garlics(adjust at your preference)
- 2 tbsp of seseme seeds.
- 1 tbsp of sugar
- 2 tbsp of Guiz Chili Crisp(either flavor is great, we use original flavor here)
- 3 tbsp of Tahini sauce mixed with 3 tbsp hot water
- 1/2 cup of sizzling oil
- 2 tbsp of soy sauce
- 2 tbsp of Chinese black vinegar
- 1 pinch of salt
- 200g of potatoes
- 400g of potato starch
Finely dice the garlic and place it in a bowl, along with sesame seeds, and Guiz chili crisp. Next, heat the oil in a pan until it's just shy of smoking. Carefully pour the hot oil into the bowl with the garlic mixture, allowing the flavors to meld.
Blend tahini with water until smooth, then stir in soy sauce, black vinegar and sugar. Season the mixture with a pinch of salt to taste.
Cook the potatoes until they're super soft, almost falling apart. Once they're done, mash them up good. Then, add in the potato starch. You'll want about half as much starch as you have potatoes (a 1:2 ratio). The cool thing is, the more starch you add, the chewier your noodles will be. So, feel free to play around with it until you get them just how you like!
Start by making your dough. Add a bit of water to get it to the right consistency. If it starts cracking while you're rolling it out, that's your cue to add a bit more water. Once the dough feels right, take a piece and shape it into your favorite noodle style. Then, drop those noodles into boiling water. Cook them until they're just how you like - whether that's a little bit chewy or super soft.
Once the noodles are cooked, drain them and give them a quick rinse under cold water. If you've got ice, throw some in the mix too. This helps stop the cooking so they don't get too soft. Next up, toss those noodles with the tasty sauce you just whipped up. And there you have it – your super delicious dish is all set to be devoured! Enjoy!
