​Soak rice with 20-25℃ cold water. The ratio of water to rice is 1.5:1. Soak the rice for about 2-3 hours and then dry it for later use. Also prepare cold half-cooked rice.


Mix the soaked rice and half-cooked rice in a ratio of 5:1 and then put them into the grinder. Dry the ground rice.



Place the rice in a bowl and gradually add boiling water at 80-90℃. The ratio of rice and water should be 3:4. Then stir clockwise for about 15-20 minutes until the rice paste can be pulled into strips.


Pour the rice paste into a bowl with small holes at the bottom and it will flow into the pot with 65-70℃ water in it. When the rice paste becomes rice noodles, scoop it up, put it into a basin with cold water and drain the water.



Put the rice noodles into boiled water for about 5-8 seconds, then remove and put it into a bowl. Drizzle with soup and add some cooked ginger, shredded cabbage and fried peanuts. Finally a bowl of Gaoming Rice Noodle is done.
