Shirataki Noodles are a low calorie, gluten free and zero net carb noodles which I have successfully used to make this delicious and out of the world guilt free Shirataki Noodle Stir-Fry with Chicken and Veggies.
Noodles, more specifically Chowmein is my ‘cheese’. It means to me what cheese means to Jerry (of Tom & Jerry). I miss Chowmein more than any other kind of food that I miss from my time in Delhi. I love it with all my heart. So when I was contemplating and researching on the keto lifestyle, one thing that made me really apprehensive was how I was going to manage my cravings for Chowmein, the kind that we get on the streets in Delhi. Or any other kind, really, as long as it is made the indian Style!
Honestly, at that time, I just jumped into this lifestyle and figured that I will deal with the cravings as and when they come. One month passed pretty smoothly. But then one fine day, I saw a post on Facebook which mentioned keto noodles. The goal of my life, atleast the short term goal changed suddenly!
I put my researching gloves on and read everything I could find about these noodles. They are called Shirataki Noodles. And I saw them available on amazon. My favorite ones are these.
These come in individual packets, like Maggi.
There were a number of reviews everywhere I went. Some were good and a lot of them were really bad. People mentioned a strange fishy smell when they opened the package. But considering my loyalty towards Noodles, I decided to go ahead with it and ordered myself a pack of 6 shirataki noodles from amazon. I took the dive!
While my package was in transit, I put my gloves on again and took to Youtube. I saw many videos on how to cook these noodles correctly such that there was no smell whatsoever.
Once I received my Shirataki Noodles, there was no stopping me.
