Turn your Spaghetti into Chinese Noodles

Turn your Spaghetti into Chinese Noodles

Just adding one secret ingredient to your regular spaghetti transforms them into Chinese noodles!!

Ingredients: 1 serving

100 g
1000 ml
1 tablespoon
Baking soda
1 tablespoon
[Note] I recommend using baking soda, but if you couldn't get hold of it, use baking powder instead.


1. Boil water. Add baking soda and cook the spaghetti as directed on the packaging, plus and additional 2 minutes, and it's done. Baking soda + 2 minutes to the cooking time --That's it!
2. It bubbles a little when you put in the baking soda, but don't be surprised.
3. If you don't like the starchiness of the spaghetti, or if you're making a chilled noodle dish, rinse the cooked spaghetti under running water and cool it down.

Story Behind this Recipe
