Top these noodles with dishes that have a lot of sauce, such as Mongolian Beef with Vegetables (page 109).
4 ounces vermicelli noodles
4 cups oil for deep-frying
Heat oil in preheated wok or heavy saucepan to 375°F. If the noodles come with string wrappings, cut them off. Do not soak the noodles.
Drop one 2-ounce package of noodles into the wok. It should puff up immediately. Remove and drain on paper towels. Repeat with the other package. Cut the noodles into serving portions or serve as is.
