Potato Noodles Recipe

On goes my streak of weird foreign dishes, now with Potato Noodles

I cooked these noodles after seeing a short on YouTube… they turned out ok, but I messed up a few things, and I hope you’ll be able to learn from my mistakes.

The Potato Noodles Ingredients 

2 medium yellow potatoes 500g, 1.1 lb

¼ cup potato starch/corn starch

2 litres of water

⅛ cup salt

Chili Oil Sauce

3 cloves garlic

1 stalk green onion julienned 

½ tsp red chilli powder

¼ tsp garam Masala powder

1 tsp brown sugar

1 tbsp soy sauce

½ tsp vinegar/pickle juice

¼ cup vegetable oil/ghee

2 tbsp coriander chopped finely

1 small onion chopped finely

1 cucumber julienned

½ tsp salt 


  1. Peel, chop, and boil potatoes until tender.
  2. Transfer potatoes to bowl and finely mash.
  3. Add starch, mixing and kneading, then taking a mallet or a mortar, pound the potatoes until sticky and glutinous, then form a firm and smooth dough ball.
  4. Roll dough into a long log, then divide the log into 16 pieces 
  5. Roll the dough pieces into chopstick-length strips.
  6. Carefully transfer the potato noodles to boiling water for 5 minutes or until fully cooked.
  7. Transfer cooked noodles to cold water, drain, and then transfer to a bowl.
  8. Place all toppings on noodles, gently pour hot oil onto the toppings and noodles.
