Don’t confuse rice vermicelli with cellophane noodles, another thin Asian noodle that’s made with mung bean starch.

You can use brown or white variety of Vermicelli Rice Noodles

Drain the rice noodles well before mixing the sauce.

Use a cast iron skillet or a wok for stir fry as these work well under high heat
