Spicy Peanut Noodles

Ingredients:

1 pound spaghetti
3/4 cup smooth peanut butter
1/2 cup unseasoned rice vinegar
3 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon sugar
6 tablespoons soy sauce
1/4 cup water
1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil
2 teaspoons crushed red pepper
One 2-inch piece of fresh ginger, peeled and coarsely chopped
1 large garlic clove
3 celery ribs, thinly sliced
1/2 cup coarsely chopped cilantro leaves and tender stems
Lime wedges, for serving

Directions:

1. In a pot of boiling salted water, cook the spaghetti until tender. Drain and rinse under cold water until cooled. Drain well.

2. In a blender, puree the peanut butter with 6 tablespoons of the vinegar, 3 tablespoons of the sugar, the soy sauce, water, sesame oil, crushed red pepper, ginger and garlic. Transfer 1/2 cup of the peanut dressing to a bowl and toss with the noodles.

3. In another bowl, toss the celery with the cilantro and the remaining 2 tablespoons of vinegar and 1 teaspoon of sugar.

4. Transfer the noodles to bowls and drizzle with the remaining peanut dressing. Top with the celery and serve with lime wedges.

Make Ahead The peanut dressing can be refrigerated for 2 days.

[Editor's Note: I will skip the sugar. That makes this recipe compatible for people with diabetics. Plus, in Indian taste, we do not usually have sweet and sour foods. Try adding some other spices to come up with your variant of the recipe. Please send your recipe to Malankara World so we can share it with our global audience.]
