Recipe Notes:

www.recipetineats.com)1. I’ve tried every rice stick sold at supermarkets in Australia. Chang’s is the best – it’s less prone to breaking when it’s tossed in the pan. See photo in post. If you can’t find Chang’s, use another that is 2 – 3 mm / 0.1 ” thick. Avoid wider rice noodles, they are more prone to breaking.
