I am utterly mad about rice noodles, partly because I am one of those people with a bit of a pesky gluten intolerance. I couldn't believe it when I discovered them relatively late in life in a Vietnamese eatery in Soho. But like a new word, once discovered I realise they were everywhere and that, actually, you can cook them at home! JOY. So I do. Often. This is my version of a spicy noodle laksa.
