Here Are Few Steps That You Must Follow Before Boiling Noodles:
Stir It Frequently
There is nothing better to prevent noodles from sticking together than stirring frequently. When you put the raw noodles in, you should use a plastic or wooden spoon and physically move all of the noodles around and separate them as much as possible. Stirring is very mandatory in the first half of the boiling process.
Add Enough Water
There can also be a time when you keep stirring in between but still your noodles stick to each other. Well then you should check the water quantity. The golden rule while boiling the noodles is that too much water is better than less water. Ultimately, we have to strain the water from the noodles.
Rinse Immediately In Freshwater
Once the noodles are cooked, pour onto a strainer to remove the extra water. Ensure that it is entirely dry. Add 5-6 cups of cold fresh water to the noodles and drain them again. Be careful not to break the noodles while doing this.
Add Oil After Boiling The Noodles
Do not add oil while boiling the noodles because oil and water do not mix together. So, it makes no sense to add oil in the noodles while boiling. Instead add oil in a pan and add the cooked pasta. By following this, you can prevent your noodles from sticking for a longer time.
