Vegan Dan Dan Noodles

I had my eye on this for so long but didn't get a chance to make it and when I got it, Made it and it was perfect on the first try so I had to share it. Here I made it with soy crumbles, but you can make it with tofu and mushroom combo or just the mushroom or vegan chorizo works too.  Typically it made with pork so if you are a meat-eater, you can make it with pork, beef, chicken mince and enjoy it. It sounds and looks like a lot of preparation but its nothing, the dish has all different components in it but when you put together, it becomes a wholesome dish.

You have to prepare egg noodles and keep it aside. Make the sauce for this and keep it aside. Boiled the green vegetable (your choice) and keep it aside. Make "meat " filing and keep it aside. At the end of the bowl, you mix everything and enjoy the spicy bowl of noodles which is called Dan Dan noodles.  This dish originally from the Sichuan region in China and there they love to eat spicy food. But you can adjust the level of spice as per your liking.
