Tips and Tricks
- Noodles – after the noodles are boiled/cooked and strained, run them through cold water. This prevents them from sticking. Another tip is to pour a little bit of oil and coat them.
- Salt – you might want to taste the dish seasoning it towards the end. The addition of salt while cooking the noodles and soy sauce makes the Garlic Mushroom Noodles pretty salty.
- Garlic – this recipe uses a lot of garlic for its magic aroma and taste. But if you’re up for more garlicky flavour, add garlic powder before adding the noodles.
For Garlic Mushroom Noodles, go for Hakka noodles or even instant noodles. Also spaghetti – It works really well with this dish. That’s what I used in this recipe.
Avoid overcooking the noodles. Keep on checking in between and take off the heat immediately after they are done.
Then, after they are fully cooked, either run them under cold water or transfer them in a big bowl having ice water.
Noodles stick because they keep on expanding with all the residual heat that’s left in them. Once you put them in cold water they stop expanding they remain the same.
Yes! Any sort of edible mushroom works great for this dish. You can also add assortments of mushrooms. They will add umami and a depth of flavour to this dish.
There are a lot of alternative like any hot sauce, chilli sauce, schezwan sauce, sweet chilli Thai sauce. If you don’t have any of these, use ketchup along with some chilli flakes or powder.
I highly recommend toasted sesame oil for this dish. In case you don’t have it, use any neutral vegetable oil.
