Cooking Tips

  • You must make sure that the wok is extremely hot for this dish. If cooked on too low a heat you'll find yourself with noodles that stay together and a sloppy, unappetising meal.

  • You can pre-soften the noodles if you would like in some warm water. this may make the dish a bit quicker but you've got to take care to not over cook the noodles as they're going to begin to break down.
  • If you can't find garlic chives, you'll use some extra shallots instead.
  • The dish should be crunchy, flavoursome and not soggy. it's better to under-cook the vegetables as they're going to still cook a bit after served. The carrot should be crisp not soggy.
