Bismillah, let's start!

Add 2 teaspoons Chinese Five Spice Powder. This can be found in the seasonings section at the supermarket.




Add 1 teaspoon soy sauce.

Meanwhile, take 2 nests egg noodles.




Cook the noodles according to packet instructions.

    1. Hi Lisa! You can use any chilli sauce you like. I prefer a chilli garlic sauce like Sriracha but a sweet chilli would be good too.

    1. Hello! You can leave it out. It is just used to thicken the sauce but the noodles will do that for you as well. :)
