2018-08-14 cold noodle with cumin lamb cubes
I just enjoyed the cold noodle for the lunch two days in a row and I just can't stop eating it.
This is really delicious and I wanna share this easy yet nice cuisine with you guys. Let's roll.
What is one of the most popular lunch food in traditional Shanghai people's community?
PS: you will find many versions of cold noodle depending on where you ware, and I am talking about the cold noodle in Shanghai style.
Ok, I give you cold noodle.
So, basically, you know it is very hot with the damn high temperature and you definately should stay away with the hot soup noodle. You will be sweaty without any doubt. Especially, you need to go back to the office to keep working. The smells ... em ...
Traditional Shnanghai people have the solution: cold noodle, cold won tum, cold ... many many food can be served in the cold style, but we are talking about cold noodle right now.
So, fisrtly, you put the noodle into the boiling water as usual and wait until you think it is cooked thoroughly.
Secondly, you pull noodles out and put them into a dish or plate, then you spill some sesame oil.
Well, you can spill whichever oil you want. The main purpose is to prevent noodles sticking together. You can spill olive oil. But, Chinese people and Shanghai people use sesame oil because we originally don't plant or cultivate olive.
Ok, after spilling oil, you just make it cool. And, when the noodle cools down, it actually become cold noodle, simply.
To enjoy the essence of the Chinese food and Shanghai food, you also need some condiment: soysauce, peanut butter, Chinese vinegar and if you like spicy food, you just add some spicy sauce like chili oil.
Alright! That is it. That is the cold noodle.
I was enjoying my lunch in a halal canteen , so they add some cumin lamb cubes and I like it.
Meanwhile, you can add some vegetables if you want. Just be yourself, you can add whatever you want. HAHA.
