Homemade Steamed Rice Noodles

We decided to get a bit adventurous in the kitchen this week and make rice noodles from scratch. It was a lot of fun. I may of made a bit of a mess but it was very satisfying.

  • 1/2 cup Tapioca flour
  • 1 cup Rice Flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cups Water
  • Vegetable oil for greasing


Prepare the Rice Noodle Batter

  • Mix rice flour, tapioca flour, and salt in a bowl.
  • Gradually add 1 1/2 cups of water while whisking to create a thinner batter.
  • Rest the batter for 15-20 minutes for optimal hydration.

Steam the Noodles

  • Grease a heatproof dish or steaming tray to prevent sticking.
  • Stir the batter and then spread the batter evenly on the dish/tray
  • Place it in a steam over, steamer or wok with water.

Cook the Noodles

  • Steam the batter for 4-5 minutes until it becomes a translucent sheet.
  • The thinner batter may cook faster. The noodle sheet should be pliable and not dry.
  • Getting the right thickness is key – you don’t want them to thin or too thick.

Cut the Noodles

  • Once the noodle sheet is cooked, carefully remove it from the steamer and place it on a clean surface.
  • Use a sharp knife or kitchen scissors to cut the noodle sheet into your preferred noodle size. You can make them wide or narrow, depending on your preference.



Cooking times may vary based on your equipment and batter thickness. Adjust as needed for the best results.
