The main stages of cooking rice noodles
As noted, the most popular dish from this semi-finished product is the "Funchoza" salad. The recipe at home will be successful if you cook the vermicelli correctly. Overcooked funchose is soggy and sticky, and undercooked - sticks to the teeth.
The cooking process depends on the type of noodles.
If the diameter of the noodles is 0,5 mm, then it is enough to fill it with boiling water, add vegetable oil, stir and close the lid. One liter is needed for one hundred grams of a semi-finished product. After five minutes, drain the noodles.
If the diameter exceeds 0,5 mm, the cooking process will be different.
1. Pour cold water into a saucepan and put the semi-finished product into it. It takes five minutes for the vermicelli to soak.
2. Heat water in another saucepan, add vegetable oil and bring to a boil.
3. Drain the noodles and cook. At this stage, be sure to add plenty of salt, add your favorite seasonings and spices. This vermicelli is able to absorb any smell and taste.
4. Stir gently. Boil the noodles for no more than four minutes and drain. No need to rinse. Next we have the Funchoza salad according to the plan. Choose any recipe at home.
