Try these four cooking tips that will make your chow mein even more delicious.
Does cooking dinner feel like a burden? Don't worry and make these Chinese stir-fry noodles with vegetables. And for a change, if the veggies are chopped in advance, then this chow mein will be ready in 30 minutes. But unfortunately, the chow mein often becomes too sticky or remains raw during the preparation. If this happens to you too, today with this article, we will share cooking tips to make perfect chow mein at home.
Put chow mein in hot water
Most of the people put water on the gas as well as chow mein in it. Because of this, the chow mein gets scorched or remains raw. To boil chow mein properly, first heat the water. When the water in the pot boils well, add a spoonful of oil to it, then add chow mein. Check the chow mein after two minutes; if it is cooked, turn off the gas and let it remain in hot water for some time.
Add cold water
When you remove the chow mein from hot water (after a while), put it in cold water instead of keeping it in an open vessel. This will not let the chow mein stick to each other.
Use vegetables in chow mein
If you want to make chow mein healthy, then use more and more raw vegetables. Now you may ask why raw veggies? Because only boiled and undercooked vegetables enhance the taste of chow mein.
Cook on high flame
When the chow mein is added to the vegetables, cook it on a high flame and stir repeatedly. Also, follow these tips:
- If you want to make the noodles nutritious, add the crunchy soya while boiling or frying. This will make the noodles more healthy.
- Cut the onion and other vegetables thinly, fry them on high flame first, and add the noodles.
- If the noodles start sticking while cooking, add a pinch of salt and a few drops of oil.
Follow these tips to make a perfect chow mein so that you can enjoy it with taste and pleasure.
