Bagged snail noodles, as the name suggests, are a type of instant food packaged in bags. Generally, the snail rice noodle ingredients include noodle bags, broth bags, ingredient bags, and seasoning bags. The main difference between different brands of bagged snail noodles lies in the ingredient bags, but the cooking method for most types of snail rice noodle soup is similar:
Take out the luo si noodles from the bag and soak them in water until they soften. Then pour out the water and drain the noodles. Add fresh water and boil until fully cooked. If you don't have enough time, you can boil the noodles and cold water together for about ten minutes until they are cooked. You can also add some vinegar to the water while cooking.
After the water boils, pour in the broth and stir well with chopsticks.
Open the ingredient bags except for the peanut bag, and pour them into the pot to cook for about 1-2 minutes, then turn off the heat.
After turning off the heat, add the peanuts and stir well. The more savory friends can also add vinegar or chili oil according to their own taste.
To cook bagged snail noodles as delicious as those served in restaurants, you need to pay attention to some small details in the cooking process. The cooking techniques for snail rice noodle soup are as follows:
When adding water to the noodles for the second time after soaking, you need to strictly control the amount. Too much or too little water will affect the taste. Some vendors will provide a water measuring bag, follow the suggested amount to add water accordingly.
Sour bamboo shoots and pickled green beans in the snail rice noodle ingredients are the source of the odor, and those who like snail noodles especially love this flavor. High-quality sour bamboo shoots can greatly stimulate the customers' taste buds and saliva secretion during the boiling process. If you can't stand it, you can omit or reduce the amount. However, the snail noodles will lose their flavor without these ingredients. Also, note that this flavor may make your kitchen smell pungent.
The chili oil bag in the snail rice noodle ingredients is also an essential part. Good chili oil has a bright red color, is spicy without being dry, adds color and flavor, stimulates the appetite, and makes the appearance and taste of the snail noodles much better. Therefore, it is recommended to add an appropriate amount. However, don't add too much because the spiciness of the chili oil is high. If you can't eat spicy food, it is advisable to add a quarter or less.
