How do you keep Chinese noodles from sticking?

To prevent your Chinese noodles from sticking, you must first make sure to respect the cooking time. If you cook your noodles too long, their texture will become sticky. If you opt for dehydrated noodles, immerse them in lukewarm water for about fifteen minutes. On the contrary, if you use fresh ones, blanch them in a pan of boiling salted water to which you add a dash of vegetable oil. Leave them for 3 minutes, drain them and sprinkle them with a drizzle of oil before loosening them with chopsticks.

How to cook instant noodles?

To prepare your instant noodles, first cook them in a pan of boiling water for 2 to 3 minutes – do not exceed this time otherwise you will have very soft noodles.
