Spicy Chilli Oil Noodles Recipe

Spicy Chilli Oil Noodles

Total Time: 8 minutes

Serves: 2

Inspired by the explosion of intense flavours in Yo Po Mian (油泼 面), an easy noodle recipe made by pouring hot oil over aromatics.

Traditionally, this chilli oil dish requires handmade noodles, but dry noodles work just as well. These spicy chilli crisp noodles are simple to cook and loaded with healthy ingredients and irresistibly delicious flavour.

Chef’s note:

  • For more flavour, cook ground meat or veggie toppings like tofu, onions, mushrooms and julienned carrots in our Timur Chilli Crisp Topping, made using cold pressed oil. Blanched greens such as Bok Choy or Chinese broccoli also make for great optional toppings. 
  • Increase the amount of our Timur Chilli Crisp Topping according to the quantity of your meat or veggie toppings.
