For rice noodles.

2 cups Rice flour.

2 and 1/2 cup Water(Boiling hot)

Salt to taste

1 tbsp Oil

For Ras.

2 cups grated Coconut.

1/2 cup grated Jaggery.

1/4 tsp Cardamom powder.

1/2 tsp Jeera.

Salt to taste.


For Rice Noodles.

In a big vessel bring 2 and 1/2 cups water to boil.

To this,add a pinch of salt and 1 tbsp oil.

To the boiling water add the rice flour, stir quickly, turn the flame off and remove vessel from the flame and put the lid on.

While the mixture is still hot, mix it well, and make cylinder shaped big rolls.

When it starts boiling put these cylinders in it.

Sev press

Take the re surfaced cylinders,while still hot and put them in the noodle ‘press’ or sev press and press out thin noodles on a sieve.
