Chili Oil Noodles

You must have seen various version of this Spicy Noodle dish on the internet these days. And often people would make an instant chili oil and then toss the boiled ramen/noodles to it.

I am sure that would taste amazing, but when you prepare the noodle with chili oil that has been sitting for a while, the flavor enhances and turns into finger licking good.

Here is a link to the Chili Oil that it always stocked in my pantry, and I have used it in so many ways.

There is a boat load of flavor in the Oil:

  • Oil
  • Korean Chili Powder – Gochugaru (You can use chili flakes too)
  • garlic
  • shallot
  • green onion
  • star anise
  • bay leaves
  • black pepper
  • coriander seeds
  • cinnamon stick
  • sesame seeds

With all that spices, you can imagine how flavorful the chili oil will turn out.

What is added in the Chili Oil Noodles

The Chili Oil Noodles is prepared by tossing the cooked noodles with premade chili oil, soya sauce and sesame oil. I add fresh green onion for garnish and some more sesame seeds.

If you are like me who enjoys soft eggs with noodles, then add that too. The creamy yolk adds a rich taste to the

What variety of Noodles to use?

There is absolutely no rule, no right or wrong noodles. You can try with pasta too. I mostly use instant ramen noodles, because I also add the spice powder that comes in the packet for the extra boost of taste.

Key point to not overcook the noodles like any other noodle dish. Boil it as per the instruction time in the packet mentioned.

I definitely like mine topped with soft eggs and an extra drizzle of the chili oil on top. It is SO GOOD.

    My husband and I have become addicted to ramen noodles. Currently my quick and easy meal is to toss with Kimchi but using your chili oil and topping with an egg sounds even better. What a great meal. Thanks!
