Chinese Cold Noodles with Sesame Paste

(Last Updated on November 14, 2023 by Amiee)

It’s the air-conditioning season again, and Chinese cold noodles with sesame paste is a good choice in the hot summer. The northerners’ loving for sesame paste that is used in hot pot, salad, noodles, and cakes is incomprehensible to people in other regions.

The sesame sauce we bought is thick, so need to dilute it with water or other seasoning like soy sauce or vinegar before cooking. Whether you use chopsticks or a spoon, it takes time and patience to dilute the sesame paste. It must be stirred in one direction at least a hundred times. In the final state, the water and the sauce are fused together.

Today’s noodles without chili oil is a kid-friendly recipe too. If you are a chili lover, why not?  Give a try, a simple easy take-out recipe will never let you down.
