Learned a tip from 料理美食王，李梅仙老師 yesterday, on how-to prepare glass noodle (aka cellophane noodle or dong fen 冬粉) b4 frying. Quickly put into practice this morning before I forgotten :)
Well, usually we'll soak the glass noodle into water, let it soften before we cook it right? Wrong method, as the grass noodle will be sticky and forming a big lump after it was cooked and cool off. Have u ever faced this before? Her tip was cooked the dried hard glass noodle in boiling water, once they r soften, transfer them into cold water, give it a good wash just like hand washing ur cloths! Then continue frying it just like usual, the glass noodle won't be starchy or sticky after the cooking or once cool, yippee!
I fried the grass noodle with some chopped tomatoes and scrambled eggs, yum! Bento was packed in 20 minutes excluding the preparation & cooking time :p
Sunflower was made of a big fish ball (with a quail egg stuffed in, cooked by mum last nite), scrambled eggs and tomatoes as petals
The flower was laying on a bed of fried glass noodle and some edamame, next to it was a box of longan
