    mianbao's Note:

    This recipe is from James McNair's Pasta Cookbook. I have not tried this, but am posting it in reply to a request. The unusual ingredients may be found in Asian markets. A large steamer into which shallow pans can be placed is used in this recipe. The use of two or more 8 or 9-inch square shallow pans is recommended to expedite noodle production. I was not sure how to list the times for this recipe, as it does not stand alone. All times are approximations and guesses.

      you know what I just realized? When I tried this I used glutinous rice flour. I'm going to try it again with normal rice flour and I bet it will work.
