Cooking Tips
You must ensure that the wok is very hot for this dish. If cooked on too low a heat you will end up with noodles that stick together and a sloppy, unappetising meal.You can pre-soften the noodles if you wish in some warm water. This will make the dish a little quicker but you have to be careful not to over cook the noodles as they will begin to break down.If you cannot find garlic chives, you can use some extra shallots instead.The dish should be crunchy, flavoursome and not soggy. It is better to under-cook the vegetables as they will continue to cook a little after served. The carrot should be crisp not soggy.
