    I want my noodle to be cooked as spicy as how you cook for Michael.

    1) I want the level of spiciness for the noodle to be same as the spiciness level as how you made it for Michael.
    2) I want my noodle to be cooked as spicy as how you cook for Michael.

    Are the sentences correct?

    Both seem rather unnatural and wordy.

    Please make my noodles as spicy as you make them for Michael.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Thanks for replying :).

    I thought of another way of writing it. Please let me know if it works?

    I want the spiciness of my noodle to be the same as you made for Michael.


    Please advice.

    Notice, Jit, that both of your earlier respondents changed noodle to noodles without explicitly calling attention to that change. It has to be noodles.

    Please advice.
    There are thousands of ways of writing it - not all as good as each other.
    "Considering both the spice specifications which you use in your cooking for Michael and those which are you planning to use when cooking for me, could you possibly equate the two?"
