Ingredients for chili oil noodles

  1. Noodles: Fresh or cooked noodles such as ramen, udon, or egg noodles are used as the base of the dish.

  1. Soy Sauce: Soy sauce provides a savory and umami-rich base for the sauce, adding depth of flavor and richness.
  2. Sugar: A touch of sugar balances the heat from the chili flakes and adds a hint of sweetness to the sauce, creating a harmonious flavor profile.
  3. Neutral Oil: Neutral oil serves as the base for the chili oil sauce. This allows the flavors of the chili flakes, Sichuan peppercorns, garlic, and ginger to infuse and meld together.
  4. Mayonnaise: Mayo adds creaminess and richness to the sauce, enhancing its texture. Providing a milder flavor contrast to the spicy chili oil.
  5. Rice Vinegar: Rice vinegar adds a tangy acidity to the sauce, balancing the richness of the mayo and complementing the other flavors in the dish.
