This dish is made with inspiration derived from the recipe of Dan dan noodles which is a noodle
dish originating from Chinese Sichuan cuisine. It consists of a spicy sauce ,chili oil, Chinese five
spice powder ,sesame paste and other spices in addition to vegetables or meat.I made this on a day
when I eat only vegetarian food But you can make this dish with any minced meat if you want.This is an excellent way to consume leftover rice and noodles in the fridge.You can prepare any proportions of
rice and noodles together as per your convenience,equal preferred.
