    Hi Nicky

    I have different advice on cooking the Japchae noodle. I was told to put noodles in boiling water to soften it and rinse in tap water before use. Is this necessary?
    Or we can just simply soften noodles and drain to use? Thanks.

    Hi Iris, Thanks for your feedback…I was also taught that way by my mum but after a few experiement, I realised by just soaking and then frying makes the texture of the noodle much better. If you boil and wash in cold water, the noodle tend to get soggy and too soft easily. See how you go!
