Vinegar noodles, also known as “suanla fen” in Chinese, is a popular dish that originated from the Sichuan province of China. It is made from rice flour or mung bean starch, mixed with water and then cooked into thin, translucent noodles.
The sauce for vinegar noodles typically includes vinegar, soy sauce, sesame oil, sugar, garlic, and chili oil. The noodles are then mixed with the sauce, creating a tangy and savory flavor that is both refreshing and satisfying.
Some variations of vinegar noodles may include additional ingredients such as shredded cucumber, carrots, peanuts, or scallions. It is a popular street food in China and can be served as a cold dish during hot summer months or as a warm dish in cooler seasons. The dish is low in calories and fat and is a healthy option for those looking for a light meal.
