Also called saifun or cellophane noodles. They are made from mung beans. If you soak them in hot water for 15-20 minutes, they become transparent then you just use them in a recipe. Deep-frying them makes a completely different animal. :laughing: They puff up immediately. In about 12 second, a handful becomes a plateful. It's almost as much fun as bubble wrap.The rice sticks (maifun) did the same thing.

This is what they look like soaked then stir fried. They absorb flavor and color, but you can still see the glass-like quality:

And this is what they look like deep-fried (the fluffy white noodle nest is the bean threads) :

I have been experimenting a lot because of an allergy kid. He loves them. He calls it alien food, as in outer space aliens.
