and sorry for the basic question but I'm a... basic cook.
I'm trying to replicate a simple meal I buy at the local shop which is fine when eating hot, but when cooling, leaving in the fridge and eating during the week, the noodles always stick together.
These are the noodles I use - and I cook it with chicken, sweet chilli sauce and other veg etc. I've read drizzling in olive oil helps but it didn't help me, so I assumed that's when cooking and not when putting into tubs to keep during the week.
I have also read that instead you should cook the noodles separate, then rinse them - now I haven't tried this yet as when cooking my noodles I add herbs/spices etc, wouldn't then rinsing wash the flavours off the noodles?
Or am I supposed to rinse first and then throw into the saucepan with the flavours from the chicken etc, and then add my flavourings?
Thanks in advance!
(I will eat the noodles cold the next day, no need to reheat).
