Glass Noo­dles

Food and Travel (Singapore) - - Cook's Basics -

Known by many names in­clud­ing cel­lo­phane noo­dles, Chi­nese ver­mi­celli, bean threads and even crys­tal threads, glass noo­dles are a type of trans­par­ent noo­dles made from mung bean starch and wa­ter. This vari­ant of noo­dles is usu­ally used in soups, stir-fried dishes and even spring rolls. Once cook, glass noo­dles will ap­pear translu­cent. Glass noo­dles are of­ten mis­taken for rice ver­mi­celli, but the lat­ter is made from rice, and ap­pears white in colour rather than clear af­ter it is cooked.
