Excellent!!!!! I served this with "My Thai Sesame Noodles, Recipe #413122". If you dont have rice flour do not fret. I substituted 3/4 cup all purpose flour and 2 tbs. corn starch and it came out perfect. I would watch how much salt you use. I will cut back a little on this, but otherwise a very good recipe. Wouldn't change anything, but dont be afraid if you need to do a substitution.
