Simple cooking with Mentai



Seldom cook since I left the university, but the activity from My Studio Kitchen and Maxim’s Chinese brought me back to the cooking life. Luckily received a box of mentai, one of my favorite food, which is so easy to manage, and therefore , I want to share this easy recipe with you.

4. 加入芝麻油拌勻。(如不喜歡,可省去。)

1. Boil the water and cook the noodles for round 3 mins or until al dente.
2. Drain the noodle but keep 1 table spoon of water to reserve the moisture.
3. Add mentai to the noodle and mix it well. (If you want a bit more spiciness, add more mentai)
