Method for Lod Chong Thai
Pandan Water: Prepare slaked lime water by mixing two tablespoons lime paste, then squeeze the leaves & strain until you get fragrant, green water.
Pour rice flour in a large wok, followed by mung bean flour and the pandan water mixture. Cook over medium heat.
Start to stir right away. The recommended technique is to stir in one direction only. Continue stirring for 10-15 minutes until the batter starts to set with thick consistency.
Turn off the heat and pour the cooked batter into a Lod Chong press with a bucket below containing water at room temperature to capture the Lod Chong noodles. Press down in a pumping motion so the noodles will be short.
