2 cups Swansdown cake flour (no substitute)
¼ cup Wheatstarch (or cornstarch)
⅛ teaspoon Boric acid powder (poun sa) optional
1 teaspoon Salt
⅓ cup Oil
2⅔ cup Cold water

TO MAKE DOUGH: Mix above in order given. Make sure the batter is smooth and free of lumps. Ladle ⅓ cup into an oiled 9- inch pie pan. Steam for 5 minutes. Cool. Roll up jelly roll style. Wipe pie pan clean, oil again and repeat procedure until all the batter is used. The steamed dough is now ready for stir fry or to be stuffed with fillings.

DO-AHEAD NOTES: These can be made ahead and kept at room temperature for 24 hours. The storage depend entirely on individual recipes utilizing this dough. COMMENTS: To facilitate the cooking, use 2 pie pans; one can be cooking while the other one is cooling off. You will find that it may be necessary to wash the pan between steaming. Be sure to wipe pans completely dry and re-oil each time or the batter will not roll off as easily.

Rice noodles can be purchased in stores in Chinatown but are not usually a vailable in supermarkets. That's why it is necessary to learn to make them yourself. Besides, they're so good, Ms. Yee guarantees you'll be making them often. Yield: 1 doz. noodle rolls. Source: "Dim Sum" by Rhoda Fong Yee. Formatted for MM by Karen Adler FNGP13B.
