chilli garlic noodles recipe

Sharing garlic noodles recipe which have been requested by a few readers. Noodles are a favorite with many of us. This recipe has noodles spiced up with garlic, dry red chilies and red chili sauce.

I have not made the dish spicy, but by adding more red chili sauce, you can make spicy noodles.

Red chilli paste can also be used and red chilli paste will also make the noodles spicy and hot. I also make a similar noodle recipe with green chilies and the taste of this one is different.

Chilli garlic noodles have to be accompanied with a dish that has a sauce in it. It can be chili mushrooms or chilli paneer/tofu or even veg manchurian.

I made a spicy garlic mushroom to go with the noodles. If you add veggies in the noodles, then you can just serve it as one dish.
