       Title: FRESH RICE SHEETS FOR NOODLES OR WRAPPERS
  Categories: Rice, Pasta
       Yield: 8 Sheets
  
       1 c  Rice flour
       5 tb Tapioca starch *
       4 tb Wheat starch   *
       1 ts Kosher salt
       2 c  Water; plus
       2 tb Water
       5 ts Oil
         x  Oil; to grease pans
  
   * Tapioca starch and wheat starch are both pure white, silky textured
     powders, available in 1-pound bags in well-stocked Asian Markets.
   
   1.  Combine rice flour, tapioca starch, wheat starch, salt and water
   and stir until smooth.  Strain batter through a fine strainer and
   stir in 5 teaspoons oil.  Let batter rest 30 minutes.
   
   2.  Lightly oil a baking sheet and two 8x8 inch or 9x9 inch square
   cake pans.  Place a steaming rack in a wok and add water to just
   below rack. Bring to a boil and have additional boiling water ready
   to replenish steamer.
   
   3.  Stir batter very well and pour enough into one of the cake pans to
   cover bottom, about 1/2 cup.  Set pan on steaming rack, cover wok, and
   steam 5 minutes.  Remove lid, being careful not to let condensed
   water drip on rice sheet.  (A tea towel can be placed over pan before
   covering wok - K.F.)  Remove cake pan; cool in a sink or lager pan
   filled with 1/2 inch cold water.  Meanwhile, fill and steam the other
   cake pan.
   
   4.  Loosen the cooled rice sheet from the first pan and roll it out
   onto the oiled baking sheet.  Turn over rice sheet to lightly oil
   both sides, then transfer to a platter.  Repeat cooking, cooling, and
   oiling steps with remaining batter.
   
   5.  Stack rice sheets on a plate, cover with plastic wrap, and
   refrigerate at least 2 hours before cutting into noodles or adding
   stuffings.
