Hi Cecilia, what's your secret for not drying out the bijon noodles? I find that they can get really dry if you don't cook them properly. But yours looks lovely and moist! Any tips would be great! Cheers, Sharon

Hi Sharon...
The best way to do it is to make sure soak the bijon first till it is all soft and drain excess water.
Important:
Make sure once you add the (raw) bijon noodles in the stir fried meat, veges and sauce to lower the heat temperature to the lowest possible. Cover the wok so the steam will pretty much cook your bijon.
Give it a try and let me know the result.
Happy Cooking!

Of course, let the steam cook the bijon so as not to overcook!! Brilliant!! Thanks darl! Hope you had a happy Thanksgiving, we don't celebrate it here in Australia :-)
