Hot Garlic Noodles

Kids to adults, everyone loves noodles. Noodles has some magic attached to it. Every flavor of noodles is equally welcomed by everyone. This hot garlic noodles is loved in our family. It is spicy, garlicky, and yummy to the last bit. 

We used to buy the Ching's brand earlier. Though it is a little spicy, my kids will love to have it. Though the quick cook packaged noodles are fun, it is not healthy to have it more often. So, I started to make it from scratch and we love this version. This is very close in taste to the original version. If you prefer a little soupy, add a little more water. I have used the Ching's hakka noodles, feel free to use your favorite noodle for this recipe.
