1) Take water in a large pot or patila. Bring it to a rolling boil on medium-high heat. Once it starts boiling add salt.

2) Then add noodles. NOTE: I had small slabs of noodles, so I have added as such. If you have a big slab of noodles then break into two or three and then add into boiling water. So it fits into the pan.

3) Put the timer for 5 minutes (or whatever time mentioned on your noodles packet). After a minute or so noodles will start to soften up. Loosen them slightly using a fork.

4) Continue cooking till the timer goes off. Within this cooking time, noodles will get soft (just cooked) not mushy.

6) Keep it into the colander and let the excess water drain out.
