Dan Dan Noodles(四川坦々麺)

In this recipe, I will show you how to make Szechuan Dan Dan Noodles 四川坦々麺 one of the most popular street food of Sichuan, China. Dan Dan Noodles (担担面, dan dan mian) is a dish where noodles are topped with a spicy and savoury sauce, and complemented by crispy minced pork and peanuts. When the sauce and noodles are mixed together using chopsticks, the taste is spicy, numbing and addictive.

This Szechuan Dan Dan Noodles are made with my own original recipe of base sauce, sesame and peanut paste, chilli oil that really packed a punch. I used a mix of pork and beef for the crispy minced meat to add more dimensions for the taste. Instead of standard Chinese handmade noodles, I used Japanese style handmade ramen noodles to make this unique point for my recipe. Once the noodles were mixed with the sauce, the flavours exploded and the fragrance was amazing! I think this is my best recipe for Dan Dan Noodles so far.
