“Biang Biang” Style Udon (Sichuan Inspired Spicy Noodles)

Fierce and fiery, you have to try these Biang Biang noodles!
“Biang Biang noodles originates from Xi’an, China where it was commonly eaten by peasants because it is made from easy to obtain ingredients and extremely filling. The typical Biang Biang noodle is a delicious combo of thick hand-stretched noodles fried in chili oil, garlic, and shallots.
Why “Biang,” you must be wondering? Some speculate that it is simply the sound that the dough (of the noodles) makes when it hits the counter when stretched. Others say it is the sound that the noodles make when you chew it.
Here at Mekhala, we have made our own version of it using Sichuan Udon noodles (a perfect thick and smooth noodle alternative), where you can easily prep and make a quick and easy meal at any time, especially when you crave spicy!
