Instructions:

Cook the noodles 'al-dente' in lots of boiling salted water. If using oriental noodles, cook for only 2-3 minutes! Drain the noodles and rinse with cold water to stop cooking, and reserve for later. In a mini-chopper or using mortar and pestle, pulverize garlic and ginger in water.
Stir the sesame paste until the texture is even.Combine paste, oil,soy and vinegar, and mix well. Add garlic and ginger mixture. Dry roast peppercorns, then grind them. Add pepper, scallions, sugar and chili sauce to the sesame mixture and mix well. Let rest for 1 hour or more. Before serving, rinse the noodles with cold water until no longer gummy. Serve the noodles on a platter with sauce in a
separate bowl.
