  • Which brand of rice flour should I use? I used Thai rice flour which I think is one of the best options plus they are pretty cost-saving. Other similar textured rice flour can be substituted as well.
  • Can I use other starches? YES! I tried it with arrowroot starch before and it worked perfectly. Some starches may be more sticky than others, so adjust flour and water after the first steam. For example, add a tablespoon of rice flour and water if the noodle appears to be too sticky. On the other hand, add more starch if you can’t lift up the noodles easily once they have cooled down.

  • Thin batter – The batter should have a thin texture like soymilk but not too watery, see the pictures below.
  • Grease the pan – I used a non-stick cake pan and found that I can lift the noodles up easily if I greased the pan. Without the grease, I’ll need to wait for the noodles to completely cool down before lifting it up. Also, to get a smooth texture on both sides, I rinse the pan and wipe it down after each steam, but this is an optional step.
  • Stir the batter – Yes, you’ll need to stir the batter before each steaming because the flour will set to the bottom of the mixing bowl after a while.
  • Steaming methods – There are many ways to steam the noodles either using a stainless steel steamer rack or any make-do steamer. I like placing my cake pan onto the hot water and let it float during steaming. This is one of the fastest ways to cook the noodles that also provides an even cooking temperature.
  • Coldwater bath – this is optional but I find that this helps cool down the noodle quicker which results in easier lifting.
  • I strongly advise eating the noodles the same day you prepare them. But if you want to prepare the noodles ahead of time, you can store them in an airtight container and keep them in the refrigerator for up to two days. Noodles should be softened in the microwave or steam when ready to use before being added to stir-fries. Reminder: It’s best to store rice noodles after cutting them because refrigerating them will make them more fragile.
