Heat water in a big vessel.
To the boiling water, add little oil and noodles.

Noodles should not become very soft. When pressed it should break.
Drain the noodles and wash well in cold water( this will stop further cooking of the noodles) and drain again. Keep it aside for 10 mins.
After the water is completely drained, transfer the noodles to a big plate or bowl. Add a tbsp of oil to the noodles and toss gently so that it’s coated with oil and noodles remain separate.
