A few days ago, on a whim, I felt like eating cold noodles. Since I had no sesame sauce at hand, I decided to make my own from scratch with peanut butter. I combined some peanut butter with some water, some soy sauce, some sugar, some vinegar, and some sesame oil; and mixed all ingredients until the sauce became smooth. On another whim, I thought why not add some plain yogurt in the sauce. At this time my husband, who had tasted enough of my creative food, vigorously protested against this idea. He said all he wanted was a plate of cold noodles made of traditional sauce - that is, guaranteed to be delicious. So I had to reserve half of the peanut butter sauce that I had just made for him. I mixed some plain yogurt to the other half and made my own cold noodles with it. My cold noodles turned out unexpectedly extremely delicious! The best cold noodles I ever tasted! The plain yogurt enhanced the taste of cold noodles by making them more creamy.
Yogurt and peanut butter sauce
I didn't record the amount that I used for each ingredient on that day. At this moment I can only encourage you to use an appropriate amount for each ingredient and then adjust each by tasting the resulting sauce. In the near future I will make this sauce again and record the best amount to use for each ingredient. Then I will come back to update this post.
