What it is?

Rice noodles, as the name implies, is made from rice flour; otherwise, the process of its production does not differ from all known wheat vermicelli. Dough is made from rice flour and water, then it is rolled out with a very thin transparent layer, after which it is cut into narrow strips.

Depending on the type of noodles, the strips can be wider or thinner or even have a rounded shape, like a regular straw vermicelli. Salt can also be added to the dough, but classic rice noodles are cooked without adding salt.

There is also a type of noodle called funchose, many mistakenly confuse it with rice noodles, although it consists of fungus made from starch mung bean, less often from corn and potato. Due to the fact that in production often bean starch is replaced by corn or potato, naturally, all the usefulness of the product is lost. Funchoza can also be called glass noodles, because after cooking it becomes half transparent.

If it is added to the soup, fried or used in some kind of hot dish, then it should be poured with warm water for 7-10 minutes until the noodles begin to separate. Warm water makes the product ready externally, but undercooked in the middle. Due to this, in subsequent actions with noodles, it will not break apart.

If the noodles after cooking are not further expected to be cooked, that is, it will be served immediately after cooking or will be added to some cold dish, for example, salad, then the noodles should be poured with boiling water for the same 7-10 minutes for it full cooking.
