While I love the texture that cellophane noodles provide I’m often infuriated by the mess they make when trying to separate them out – I’ve found the solution is to buy packets where they are bundled into small portions of around 50g, which are perfect to use here. I used frozen squid bodies, but you could use fresh. Incidentally this mix is delicious used as a filling for dumplings.
Making your own ramen noodles using a pasta machine is great if you have the time, but you can use bought dried ramen for this recipe too. As well as working perfectly with the ramen, the charred chili oil is also a great addition to fried eggs, stir fries and soups.
