Rice Noodles Salad
This is my most favorite noodles type. It is unique as fermented rice noodles, it takes time to make, made from rice starch, fermented, created it to be thin, beautiful elastic noodles with nutty and tangy flavors. Most people know that as Thai noodles, but it is originally from Mon and Rakhine ethnic groups from Burma if you research along with the history. We called it, Mont Di.
Burmese serve Mont Di in 2 forms traditionally, in soup and as a salad. Rakhine people would serve it spicy with chilies and fermented fish paste traditionally. For us, vegan version, we can use soy sauce and light mushroom sauce as our main ingredients to flavor this Mondi in both soup and salad versions.
People from other parts of Burma, we serve this Mont Di salad with different and many ingredients mainly all-vegan such as crispy tofu, fresh cabbage, onion, peanuts, crispy shallots, crispy beans fritters, parsley, and so on.
