Rinsing in cold water reduce the saltiness of the noodles. Can rinse once or twice depending on your preference.
Do not over fry the garlic and lard. Otherwise the Mee Teow will taste bitter when mixed together.
Bean sprouts and Chinese chives need only to be fried briefly. Otherwise they will become limped. Add the bean sprouts under the Mee Teow in wok. This will ensure bean sprouts to be cooked evenly.
Fried garlic is only added after the Mee Teow has been cooked and mixed well with the garlic oil. Otherwise the fried garlic will become bitter in taste.
There is no need to add salt or any seasoning as the Mee Teow is already savoury.
