Then add some water to it.
Caution: Do not overheat the oil because then you will most probably burn the garlic and the soup will taste bitter.

  • Caution: If you add a lot of flour to the noodles the soup will thicken before it is cooked, and it will not taste good.
  • If you see noodles have too much flour boil some water in a separate pan and boil them for 2 minutes before adding them to the soup as you do with your regular pasta.

Taste the noodles to check it they are cooked or not and add some freshly chopped mint leaves to the soup a minutes before serving the soup.








Remember it should be soupy meaning you have to add enough water for noodles to be cooked and yet it has enough liquid before serving. The soup tends to get thicken as it cools down or stays for a long time.
