Mung Bean Glass Noodles
Mung bean glass noodles & vermicelli is one of the common foods in China. The main raw material is mung bean. The best vermicelli is made from mung bean. It can also be made from corn starch or sweet potato starch, but the quality is not as good as that of mung bean vermicelli, because mung bean has the most amylose and can be boiled. It is not easy to rot, and the taste is the most creamy. Similar to thin noodles, it is sold after drying. It is best to soak it in water to make it soft before eating. The diameter of the vermicelli is generally about 0.5 mm, which is also the origin of its "silk" name.
