The Correct Way to Cook Instant Noodles

“No choice, but to eat instant noodles? Here’s the correct way to cook instant noodles without harming our bodies and health (that much..)”

I have been sharing this piece of nutritional information with my readers in My Wok Life’s Face Book Fan Club. I did not post it up earlier on, because these types of nutritional tips/ information were supposed to be exclusive to my readers who joined me in my FB, as promised. However, it seems to be something useful to know, for the sake of your health, if you are one who hasn’t really came across this message.

Hence, I decided to have it posted in my blog today, to share it with ALL, even if you are not in my FB.. Just this one… The rest of other interesting information, you are still invited to log on and be my FRIEND, to know it all and have the first-hand information! Yeah, the FB Fan Club already has gotten to read this since a month ago…(chuckling)!

Well, you may or may NOT know about this:
Normally, how we cook the instant noodles is to put the noodles into a pot with water, throw in the powder and let it cook for around 3 minutes and then it’s ready to eat. However, that is the WRONG method of cooking the instant noodles! By doing this, when we actually boil the ingredients in the powder mixes, normally with MSG, it will change the molecular structures of the MSG causing it to be toxic, after boiling it on the heat.

3 Jan 09 Genie: “Hi, really love your blog.. please keep on updating! can i request for a post on the “necessity” ingredients/things you will always buy and store in your kitchen/fridge?”

The above was a message from my reader, Genie. Her request of having a post on the staple food in my kitchen struck my mind. It’s time to stock-check my fridge and food storage cabinet!

Yes, I do have many things/ ingredients which have become my staple. As a seasoned cook at home, I just can’t “make food” without them (chuckling). More

Cooking Tips on Deep-Frying Food

“Deep fry your food correctly”

You can’t go wrong with deep-frying your food. Deep-fried food is always good to taste with an aromatic crisp texture to the palate.

Often, fried food is perceived as unhealthy, fattening, and “heaty” stuff due to excessive oil absorption to the food, excessive repetition in using the same oil to fry, and consume too much piping hot stuff will cause ‘heatiness’ in our body resulted to ulcer, sore throat, and even fever, as Chinese believed. However, fried food is one of the most popular cooking methods, be it for commercial purpose, business or home-cooking. For meaty or vegetarian food, we just cannot totally eliminate fried food in our diet, can we? It’s just too hard to resist the temptation of having a bite or two, sometimes. I like fried food, from breakfast food to supper meal. Tell you what I normally take…. Doughnut or curry puff for breakfast, fried sweet potato or spring roll for tea break, fried chicken wings to go with fried bee hoon or nasi lemak (coconut-milked rice), fried fritter to dip in Bak kut teh soup (Meaty Ribs Herbal Soup), fried vegetable patty, meat, poutry, seafood…. and etc. More

New Concepts in Singapore Mathematic for Lower Primary Students
