How to Use Chickpea Starch Noodles
Chickpea starch noodles feel and taste very similar to fresh Cantonese-style rice noodles. They are tender and delicate but soak up any flavor you add easily. I like to:
- blanch them quickly to become tender,
- pan-fry with soy sauce and chili crisp (use a spatula to turn them or toss so they don’t break), or
- slip them into broth to make noodle soup
Printable Recipe for Chickpea Starch Noodles
- 100g chickpea starch (leftover from making chickpea tofu)
- 100ml cold water
- 300ml hot water
- Mix chickpea starch with cold water. Separately in a pot, bring hot water to a boil.
- Turn heat to medium, stir up the starch slurry again, and stir into the hot water. Continue cooking and stirring for two minutes until super thick, glossy and translucent.
- Quickly pour into a heat-safe container and chill completely.
- Afterwards, use a grater or vegetable peeler to slice noodles. Store in cold water up to 3 days before use.
- To cook, just drain and heat as you would fresh steamed rice noodles; treat them delicately.
