Pour at least
Break the noodle bundles roughly in half. (You might want to do this over a large bowl or the sink to catch stray broken bits.) When the oil is hot, drop one half-bundle at a time into the oil; the noodles should immediately expand to fill the pan and rise to the surface of the oil—press down on the mass of noodles gently with the slotted spoon to make sure all the noodles are puffed, then remove them to the paper towels to drain. The noodles should be in the oil for 5 to 7 seconds at most. Repeat with the remaining noodles. Serve atop soups or salads. (When the oil is cool, strain it into a clean dry container and save for another use.)
