1/3 Photos of Chinese Glass Noodles With Peanut Sauce
2 hrs 15 mins
Susiecat too's Note:
"Glass" or "cellophane" noodles are made from mung beans, and are so called because they become almost transparent when cooked. The Chinese name for them is "sai fun" and you can find them in an Asian specialty grocery, or in the international section of a well-stocked traditional grocery. Most of the time spent here is passive, for soaking and then refrigerating the noodles.
