Chilli chicken noodles

Chilli chicken noodles are spicy and flavoured with roasted sesame oil (use the dark colour ones). I love the taste of sesame oil and so I use often in my most of the recipes, it gives additional taste. The oil which we use in Tamil Nadu is gingelly oil (nalla enna, raw sesame seeds), do not use that oil, its colour is in golden and light colour where as toasted sesame oil is used for Chinese recipes. I have used egg noodles or egg-less noodles for the chilli chicken; can use any noodles you have like rice noodles, Thai noodles or Magi noodles type. I have used red chilli a long one, which is not spicy for me, it is mild and the chilli garlic sauce is Thai brand can use any chilli garlic sauce (maggi brand). It is one of my husbands favourite noodle dish, as he has very less liking towards noodles but this chilli chicken noodles is his favourite, as it is coated with spicy sauce.
