Cooking Tips

  • When making this with pork mince or chicken mince, you should cook the mince in a little water, breaking up any lumps as you go and making sure it is cooked well. Season with a little soy sauce and white pepper.
  • This dish is best prepared and served straight away. If left in the refrigerator, you may need to add some more fish sauce and lime juice to the mix as the noodles will absorb any excess liquid.
