    2      cups          chicken broth
    2      tablespoons   soy sauce
    1 1/2  tablespoons   rice wine
    1      teaspoon      sugar

 Combine the first 5 ingredients to make the sauce.  Set aside.
 
 Heat the vegetable oil in a non-stick pan over medium-high heat.  Add
 the scallions, ginger, garlic, and chili paste.  Stir and fry for
 about 10 seconds, until fragrant.  Add the sauce mixture and the
 cellophane noodles.  Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to medium-low.

 mmediately, sprinkled with the minced scallion greens.
