(Put 5-6 cups of water in a large pot and keep it to boil on medium heat. When the water starts boiling, add raw noodles, 1/4 tsp oil (2-3 drops), and 1/2 tsp salt. Cook the noodles for 4-5 minutes or let it cook until 90% is cooked. Pour it into a sieve and remove the excess water. Remove the excess stickiness from it to avoid overcooking. Add 3 cups of cold water or keep it under tap water for a while. Add 3/4 tsp of oil and mix well on each noodle until uniform oil is applied. This process will help prevent the noodles from sticking.)
