Fresh rice noodles

Yes they do work Grin Grin Grin Grin Any one who now has long grain rice and water and a TMX and 2 20cm. (8 inch ), sponge tins can make fresh rice noodles.

Soak 1 1/2 cups of long grain rice in 1 1/2 cups of water over night, OR( grind 1 1/2 cups of long grain rice for 1 1/2 mins. speed 10 in TMX.) The soaked rice and water should be blended for 2 mins., speed 9. Pour into a jug.

3/4 fill TMX bowl with warm water and set Varoma temp for 10 mins on speed 1. (it should boil in about 5 mins.)
While water is heating, lightly spray the 2 sponge tins with oil, (I used rice bran oil). Place Varoma on top of machine. Place 1 tin on top of Varoma to heat. After about 2 mins. pour in enough batter to form a thin coat over base of warm tin .

When the water boils, set the time for 5 mins, place tin on top rack of Varoma and cover with lid. Steam for 5 mins, speed 1.

While this is steaming, Pour the batter into the next tin and tip the tin to cover the base. Sit this tin on top of the Varoma cover while the one inside is cooking. This sets the next lot of batter a little.

When the 5 mins. are up, remove tin and set aside to cool. Meanwhile place the partially set tin in the Varoma and steam for 5 mins.

After about 2 mins. the cooling batter, (now a disk), is ready to remove. Using a spatula, ease the rice disk out of the tin, and place on a wire rack to complete cooling. Wash the tin and dry and spray ready for next lot of batter. Do this immediately and follow the same process of sitting on top of Varoma.

I made 12 rice disks, and would think that, cut into noddles, 1 disk would make 1 serve.
In the photo I have cut some thin and some thick. I understand they will keep for 2 days in fridge, and can be frozen.
It is important to have a very flat base to the tin in which you steam the noodles.
