I bought that packet and made the recipe I so craved for. While it was easy to make it this way, it doesn’t match taste-wise to what my mother used to make. She would steam the rice flour balls, put the hot rice balls in a vermicelli maker and make fresh vermicelli out of them. It is not as easy as it sounds, and she loved me so much that she would make it whenever I asked her to. I love my mother.
This is an easier version of my all time favorite recipe.
- One packet Thai rice noodles
- 1 coconut or 3 cups coconut milk
- 1 cup jaggery
- 1 tsp cardamom powder
Boil the noodles as per the instructions. If the packet is super-large then cook only one third of the noodles. In the meanwhile, grate the coconut. Blend the grated coconut in a blender with two cups water, jaggery and cardamom powder.
Sieve the coconut milk. Add the cooked rice noodles to this sweetened coconut milk and serve warm!
That’s it. Sometimes the best recipes are made with only a few ingredients.
