Spicy chilli garlic noodles


I’m sure by now you know I love Indo Chinese cuisine, given by the number of dishes I have shared! Also if you have been following my post, you guys know how I love quick fix meals! This spicy chilli garlic noodles recipe is just that! If your palette is craving for some spicy food then these noodles are the right deal for the job!


These noodles are loaded with garlic and a lot of heat from a combination of the fresh Thai bird’s eye chilli and the dry red chillies. The Thai chillies are from my very own little herb garden, and these little guys are reaaallly spicy! I used just 2 and that was enough heat as the chili garlic sauce is pretty spicy as well. This is such a fuss free and quick meal, just yet another perfect one to dish out on those busy week nights! Enjoy!!
