OVER POWER THE OTHER FLAVORS IN YOUR DISH.
Bring the water to boil and add the fresh noodles to it.
Boil the noodles till tender but firm.
Drain the noodles in a colander and rinse with cool water to stop the cooking process. Set aside.
In a large skillet pan, heat about 2 Tbsp. of peanut oil, you can use vegetable oil, too.
Move the pan so that the oil is well distributed.
With just a few drops of sesame oil, mix with the well drained noodles so that they won't stick together.
Add all the noodles to the skillet and evenly distribute the noodles so that they cover the whole bottom of the pan.
Don't walk away, watch the noodles as they start browning, when it is golden brown, gently and carefully flip it over and do the same for the other side.
When it is done, place it on a cutting board and cut them into about 2 1/2-inch squares.
Place on serving platters and garnish with your favorite Chinese entree.
