Why Make Potato Noodles With Chili Garlic Sauce

Potato noodles are thick, soft, and super chewy! The noodles get their earthy and slight sweetness from the potatoes and chewiness with the added potato starch. You can make these noodles from scratch by kneading mashed potatoes with potato starch.Potato Noodles3

After kneading, the dough is shaped according to your desired noodle thickness and boiled in water to cook. Of course, we are going to add a bomb of flavors by tossing in a garlicky spicy sauce made with hot oil, minced garlic, green onions, white sesame seeds, and chili flakes.

Then, you can also top it with more flavoring ingredients, such as light soy sauce for umaminess and Chinese black vinegar for a touch of fruity taste. With all the ingredients combined, every bite promises a chewy and flavorful taste that you can’t stop slurping. Interested in trying more noodle recipes? Check out these tasty noodle recipes:

Ingredients Needed To Make Potato NoodlesPotato Noodles2

If it’s your first time making potato noodles, then don’t skip this part. I share a few ingredient tips and alternatives to making fresh potato noodles and the sauce. Customize the ingredients and change the sauce flavor with your preferred spices.

Noodles

  • Potatoes: Use fresh regular potatoes for an earthy and starchy taste. These are peeled and boiled until soft enough to mash. Aside from boiling, you can also steam the potatoes if you prefer. You can replace regular potatoes with sweet potatoes if needed.
  • Potato starch: Potato starch is key in giving the noodles its chewy and bouncy texture. You can find potato starch in Asian supermarkets or in the international section of grocery stores. I don’t really recommend swapping this with cornstarch since cornstarch will not give the same chewy and bouncy texture. However, cornstarch can be used as a last resort, but you will have to adjust and play around with the amount to achieve your desired texture.
  • Water: Water is added to bind the mashed potatoes and potato starch. Although room temperature water is fine, I recommend warm water with temperatures between 110ºF and 130ºF. This temperature makes kneading easier since the dough becomes more pliable to work with.

Sauce

  • Garlic: One of the main ingredients of the sauce is minced garlic. This adds a delicious garlicky taste and aroma. If you don’t have garlic but want the garlic taste, substitute 1 clove of garlic with 1/8 tsp of garlic powder or 1/4 tsp of granulated garlic. You can also use crispy fried garlicif you prepare this in advance and simply use it as a topping.
  • Green onion: Add a mild oniony taste and slight sweetness with chopped green onions or spring onions. If you don’t have green onions but want a hint of onions, substitute this with chopped chives, shallots, white onions, yellow onions, or red onions.
  • White sesame seeds: Make it nutty and crunchy with white sesame seeds. You can swap this with black sesame seeds which have a more potent nutty taste than white. If you don’t have white or black sesame seeds, it is generally fine to remove them from the sauce.
  • Chili flakes: Chili flakes add a smoky, earthy, and slightly fruity taste to the sauce. It makes the sauce warm with its medium heat. Adjust the amount according to your desired level of heat. You can swap chili flakes with whole chili pepper or gochujang (Korean red pepper flakes). If you don’t like spicy food, it is best to omit this from the sauce.
  • Oil:You will need hot oil to drizzle over the sauce ingredients and noodles. In this way, it cooks the minced garlic and green onions and fuses the taste. Use oil with a high-smoke point to reduce the amount of oil oxidized and to withstand heat longer. I recommend avocado, peanut, canola, and corn oil. For a healthier alternative, use olive, avocado, sesame, or safflower oil. For a neutral taste, go for peanut, soybean, or vegetable oil.

Toppings

  • Light soy sauce: Light soy sauce imparts a deep, salty, and umami taste. You can use dark soy sauce as a substitute, but it is thicker and slightly sweeter than light soy sauce. Other types of soy sauce to consider are tamari, liquid aminos, coconut aminos, or gluten-free soy sauce.
  • Chinese black vinegar: Chinese black vinegar is dark and adds a fruity, slightly sweet, and acidic taste. You may find this as Chinkiang vinegar or Zhenjiang vinegar in Asian supermarkets. If you need an alternative, try using balsamic vinegar, date vinegar, or red wine vinegar.
  • Chicken bouillon powder: I used chicken bouillon powder as a flavor enhancer. You can make this completely vegan or plant-based by using vegetable bouillon powder or Italian seasoning. You can use bouillon powder, cubes, or broth.This is optional.
  • Salt and sugar: Adjust the overall taste with salt and sugar. You can use sea salt, kosher salt, or table salt. For the sugar, use white sugar, brown sugar, coconut sugar, or cane sugar.
  • Coriander: This is optional but is recommended for a tart and lemon-like taste. Use fresh coriander leaves and add as much as you want. You can substitute fresh coriander with coriander powder, parsley, mint, or basil.
