Cooking tip for making Chow Mein

  • When frying the onion, use high heat to preserve the water and release its aroma. Bring it back to medium fire once you add the sauce to avoid sticking to the pan.
  • Choosing the right type of noodles according to your desired outcome is good. You may try to use egg noodles that are thinner and drier. It is best if you want a crispier version of the Chow mien.
