Ingredient Notes: ================= Re: Chantaboon rice sticks: <I think the spelling of "chantaboon" can also be found as "jantaboon" or something like that.>
Re: Pork, Beef, or Chicken, or Shrimp: <I used tofu when I made this.
If you do the the same, press the tofu between three sheets of towel paper on the top and the bottom. Put a plate on top and a two pound weight on top of the plate. Wait 20 minutes> Re: Sliced salted radish: <These are packaged in a plastic see through flat container and slightly orange in color> ====================================================================== ==
Soak rice sticks in lukewarm water for 1 hour, drain and set aside.
