Prepare the shirataki noodles
- Drain the noodles, then rinse in a large sieve under tap water for a few minutes.
- Transfer noodles into a pot of boiling water and cook for a few minutes, or follow cooking instructions on packaging.
- Drain noodles.
- Pan fry the noodles (without any oil) on medium heat for a few minutes. This is to remove as much water as possible to enhance the texture of noodles. Keep turning the noodles with tongs and take care not to let them dry out too much. Now the noodles are ready.

- Shirataki noodles are very low in calories and carbs and have low GI, but have no nutrients, so make sure to pair it with other nutrient-dense ingredients like fresh veggies, some proteins and healthy fats. They can cause stomach upset for some people so enjoy in moderation!
- Use any oil of your choice, but make sure it has a high smoking point.
- Use the flat, wide version of shirataki noodles as it will most closely imitate the flat rice noodles traditionally used in this dish.
