black bean noodle/자장면 / 짜장면 / Jjajangmyun *immitation

i think i'm really good at immitation. currently i'm watching witch yoo hee, it's a very fun to watch korean drama. waahh....this drama have been fermented for couple of years in my external hd. while watching, i keep on thinking about their food. why they are so appealing? right now i'm so crazy abt black bean noodle....since i dont have black bean paste i just use anything black, it's called kicap lemak manis cap kipas udang. original recipe use pork but i use crabstick meat instead o(^_^)o
this is a dry noodle, no needs a cooked noodle + the SAUCE.
SAUCE (my version)
  1. heat oil in a pan + minced garlic + shallot&garlic paste + chili boh + crushed cili padi + curry powder
  2. fry until fragrant~
  3. add water + tamarind paste + sweet soy sauce + chicken stock/cube + corn syrup + corn starch
  4. adjust sugar, salt to taste & add fried crabstick + taugeh
  5. serve like pic above....mix2
Jja jjang!!if u are was hot & sweet. tingling sourness from tamarind will complement the whole flavor. curry powder makes it even fragrant (ya know sumtime crab meat smell so fishy...curry powder do the trick). corn syrup & starch makes your sauce glossy & seductive.
orang dah siap masak br terjumpa resepi homemade black bean paste
RECIPE OF CHUNJANG (black Bean Paste)
Makes about 1 cup. *this is good for my record
1 cup nonfat, reduced sodium chicken broth
2 tablespoons black bean and garlic sauce
2 tablespoons oyster sauce
1 tablespoon cornstarch (for sauce, not marinade)
1 1/2 teaspoons granulated sugar
1/2 to 1 teaspoon grated peeled fresh ginger, or to taste
1/2 teaspoon dried crushed red pepper, or to taste
2 green onions (scallions), finely minced 

To use as a marinade:
In blender mix together broth, black bean and garlic sauce, oyster sauce, sugar, ginger and red pepper until smooth and well blended. Transfer to a container, stir in green onion. 

To use as a sauce:
In blender, mix together until smooth and well blended all ingredients except green onions. Transfer mixture to small saucepan and stir in green onions. Over low-medium heat, bring mixture to a simmer, stirring constantly, about 1 to 2 minutes. Drizzle small amount of sauce in center of plates and top with cooked chicken, fish, or meat. Drizzle a small amount of sauce on top. 

Some commercially prepared sauces are labeled "black bean and garlic sauce" or "black bean sauce". Either is suitable for this recipe.
