Sichuan Cold Noodle

These noodles are a popular street food dish from the Sichuan province of China. The food eaten there is famously known as ‘ma la’ or hot and numbing, due to the use of plenty of chilli and Sichuan pepper (although this version is fairly mild!). Serve with grilled chicken or vegetables for a delicious springtime supper.
