Chefs tips
1. I have used fresh noodles for this recipe, fresh noodles have chewy texture when compared to dried noodles. If fresh noodles are not available try substituting it with dried noodles. Cook the dried noodles al dente as per box instructions,  drain the cooked noodles,  toss with generous oil and set aside.
2. This recipe uses store bought sweet chilli garlic sauce you can replace it with homemade chilli garlic sauce. Soak 4 to 5 kashmiri red chilies and 2 to 3 peeled garlic cloves in ¼ cup boiling water for 5 mins, drain the soaked chilli and garlic and grind to smooth paste with 1 tsp vinegar and 2 tsp sugar.
3. When using homemade chilli garlic sauce for this recipe mix 1 tsp corn-flour diluted in 2 tbsp cold water to the homemade sweet chilli garlic sauce.
