  • 185 g Rice flour
  • 60 g Tapioca flour
  • 5 g Xanthan gum
  • teaspoon Salt
  • 150 ml Hot boiling water (Don't need to be exactly around 150ml-160ml)


  • Put 185g of rice flour and 60 g of tapioca flour into the Philips pasta noodle machine.
  • Then, add 5 g of xanthan gum, and ⅛ teaspoon of salt in the noodle machine.
  • Cover the lid and turn on the noodle machine. Push the button for one cup setting. Let the machine run for a few seconds. Add 150ml hot boiling water slowly as the machine is running. (Don’t need to be exactly 150 ml. I normally do it around 150-160ml.)
  • Noodles will be done in around 10 minutes.
  • Boil some water in a pot, then add the noodles and cook it for around 2 minutes until it floats on top of water. Be careful it may overflow, add some cold water and let it boil. 
  • After that, drain the noodles and rinse them with cold water.
  • Next, warm up a can of chicken broth as a soup base to go with it. Also, serve it with meat, vegetables, chili sauce or chili oil . 



Cooking tips for how to make homemade rice noodles from scratch:

  • Put rice flour, tapioca flour, salt, xanthan gum into the Philips noodle machine. Cover the lid and let it run a few seconds before pouring hot water. 
  • Remember to use hot boiling water. When water is boiling, pour into the noodle machine. Be careful when pouring the hot water. 
  • Hot water is around the measuring cup mark 150-160ml. Don’t need to be exactly. Little over 150ml is ok. Slowly and evenly pouring the hot water. 
  • If noodles come out a little dry because of not enough water or dry weather. I suggest crumb it up and put it back into the Philips noodle machine. Run the machine and add a little bit of hot water again.
