5 Minutes Dan Dan Noodles


Work has been keeping me extremely busy lately and I have missed my kitchen very dearly. A trip to one of my family’s favourite Xiao Long Bao restaurant inspired this super quick and easy recipe. So easy, there is no legitimate excuse not to make it. It’s probably quicker to make it at home than to travel to the restaurant to eat it, not to mention the amount of $$ you’ll save too!

All you need is 6 simple ingredients including the help of Mizkan‘s Sesame Sauce with Roasted Nuts and 5 minutes to put it all together. This recipe is a great alternative to satiate late-night hunger pangs, after party supper or a quick simple lunch. Here’s my IG highlight to show you how easy it is to make it.

I served it up with some of my D.T.F pork chops to as a complete dinner. The meal made my husband a very happy man. Omitted the chilli paste for the kids’ portion and they slurped down their noodles without a fuss. Don’t we all love it when that happens?

You can get Mizkan’s products at any major supermarkets and Redmart. Looking for more inspiration for Mizkan’s sauces and soup base? Here are some other ways you can use Mizkan’s products:
