Ingredients

  • 6 oz rice noodles (170 g)
  • a handful fresh carrots grated
  • 1 tbsp fish sauce
  • 3 medium fresh spring onions
  • 1 tsp hot chili sauce
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • ½ tsp garlic paste
  • 1 tsp palm sugar or caster sugar
  • fresh mint or cilantro, chopped

Instructions

  1. Cook the rice noodles until tender (see the specific directions on the package). Drain the noodles and immediately refresh them under cold running tap water to avoid them becoming mushy and too soft while cooling. Let the rice noodles drain well and cool at room temperature. Put them aside until needed.
