These extremely thin Chinese noodles resemble long, translucent white hairs. When deep-fried, they explode dramatically into a tangle of airy, crunchy strands that are a traditional ingredient in Chinese chicken salad. Rice-flour noodles can also be presoaked and used in soups and stir-fries. The term rice sticks is generally applied to rice-flour noodles that are about ¼-inch wide. Rice flour noodles can be found in Asian markets and some supermarkets. They're usually sold in coiled nests packaged in cellophane.
