Equipment

  • Saucepan
  • Siv

Materials

  • 300 g dry wheat noodles

Instructions

  • Place your noodles into a pot of boiling water
  • As soon as they start to soften up use a spoon or a spatula to just stir them and separate the noodles
  • Let them boil for a minute or two (the exact amount of time will depend on how many noodles you are preparing). You can tell when they’re done by just pinching them. If they break apart easily it means they are ready
  • Turn off the heat and quickly pour them out into your siv
  • Rinse under the cold tap until they have cooled down
  • If you are not going to use your noodles straight away, pour a tbsp of cooking oil over them and mix it in with your hands. This will prevent the noodles from sticking together

Notes

Cooling down the noodles is very important. You need to stop them from cooking as soon as possible!
Only add cooking oil if you aren't going to use your noodles straight away.
The noodles will be good for 2 or 3 days if kept in the fridge.
