Chinese Dan Dan Noodles

(Last Updated on November 13, 2023 by Amiee)

Pepper and chili seem to be the first to make foreigners know Sichuan cuisine that included today’s dan dan noodles with red oil and cardamine bean sprouts(sui mi ya cai). There are two ways to prepare dan dan noodles, one with soup and one with dried mixing which is my cooking way. At first, someone picked a carring pole (pronounced bian dan in Chinese) and went to the street to sell noodles, which became the name of Dandan noodles.

Noodles should be the food I will never refuse, the warm noodles soup in winter, the refreshing cold noodles in summer, and the dandan noodles with rich taste. For singles and busy people at work, noodles are the fastest and most nutritious food. If you like mixed noodles, you can prepare some stir fried minced pork in the refrigerator. If you like noodles soup, you can prepare some chicken soup or meatballs in the refrigerator. Add some greens boiled and prepared ingrediens for noodles, noodles can be served on the table in less than ten minutes.

The preparation of dan dan noodles is a bit like burning noodles, plus more sesame paste sauce which will always increase the deliciousness of the dish. There is always a jar of sesame paste in my refrigerator for mixing noodles, cake with sesame paste fillings, hot pot, etc.
