Spicy Sesame Noodles – Delishar

Does the weather play a part in your meal planning?  I tend to gravitate towards stews or piping hot soupy meals when the weather turns a little chilly. However, there are days when the weather goes a little out of sort. Hot one day and rainy the next minute, making meal planning a little confusing. I also have to feed fussy eaters at home. Personally, I prefer my food steaming hot, not so much my husband and kids. So, I came up with this recipe that is equally delicious when served hot or cold. 

Preparation for this meal cannot be simpler. All thanks to Mizkan‘s range of convenient ready-made sauces. I used their very versatile Sesame Sauce Paste Type to make my dressing for the noodles. The rich sesame flavour and aroma of the sauce perfectly complements the fresh and light ingredients used in this recipe. The sauce was a perfect balance of umami, savoury, creamy, with a hint of sweetness. It can also be used for a wide variety of recipes such as dipping sauces, and marinades. 

Hardly any cooking is needed for this recipe, except for the eggs and noodles. The kid’s portion was made without sriracha and served with fresh ramen noodles. The husband and I had ours with soba noodles. It’ll go well with zucchini noodles as well!  

The best part of dinner was the reactions of my husband and kids. My husband looked unimpressed at his bowl of meatless noodles. But when he took his first bite, all he could say was, “WOW!”. He had 2 servings that night. Melody who is the fussiest eater among the lot had 2 servings too. Which is extremely unusual. She was all smiles during dinner that evening. My youngest exclaimed,”Yummy noodles, mom! Thank you, thank you, thank you! Can you please make the same for the next 3 days?”. Lol!

No nagging/fighting with the kids to finish up dinner that night. They slurped down their dinner like hungry little troupers. All thanks to Mizkan for their fabulous product range!  Here’s how to make this recipe.

Mix together dashi stock (or vegetable stock if vegetarian), Mizkan Sesame Sauce Paste Type, sriracha, minced garlic, and grated ginger.

Slice cucumber and carrots into match sticks, tomato into wedges, and chop spring onions.

Season eggs with salt and black pepper. Then spread out the egg to cook on frying pan. Slice into thin strips. 

Blanch noodles, drain, and toss with sauce to coat. Top with prepared ingredients. Serve garnished with toasted black sesame seeds and spring onions. Warm and cold preparation can be found in recipe card below.

Sesame Fried Chicken Wings – Delishar

Are you a fan of fried chicken wings? If you are, then I’ve got the perfect winner-winner chicken dinner recipe for you. If you aren’t then this recipe is going to win you over! It only takes 5 minutes to put together and another 5 or so to cook it. Amazingly simple and guaranteed to tantalise your taste buds! 


The secret to these speedy sesame wings is Mizkan‘s ready to use sauces. For this dish, I used Mizkan’s Versatile Sesame Sauce. It has a nutty aroma with a slight tinge of sweetness which is great to use it for marinating food, cooking, dipping sauce, and as a dressing. The possibilities are endless. In this recipe, the sauce was used to marinade the wings and tossed to coat the wings after frying for a more intense flavour. 

I made a portion to feed 4 as a side. However, my youngest daughter who is only 6, devoured almost half the portion on her own before I could stop her. She quickly requested for me to make it again, and claimed this to be her new favourite food. I wouldn’t mind given that it requires very little ingredients and can be made in a jiffy. Do give it time for the wings to marinade in the sauce. I’d recommend marinating in a ziplock baggie overnight for best result.  

NTUC Fairprice is hosting a Japan Fair during 3rd to 16th of May. This particular Mizkan Versatile Sesame Sauce will be promoted during that time with sampling period for this sauce. Do pop by to give it a taste test!
