Vietnamese Banh Canh Noodles from Scratch (Cach Lam Soi Banh Canh)

Banh Canh is a thick Vietnamese noodle made from tapioca flour or a mixture of tapioca flour and rice flour. The more tapioca flour, the chewier the noodles. I lượt thích to lớn điện thoại tư vấn this Vietnamese udon.

These banh canh noodles are made by pressing the dough through a potato ricer or spaetzle with large holes and dropping them directly into boiling water. If you don’t have a potato rice or spaetzle with large holes, you can simply roll-out the dough and cut the noodles by hand.

Boiling water is absolutely crucial when working with tapioca flour/starch. If the water isn’t boiling or hot enough, the dough will “melt”. This is most obvious when you pick up the dough that’s been mixed with tapioca starch and room temperature water. It appears to lớn be hard and crumbly. The second you let it relax, it melts lượt thích flowing lava. This makes for a very cool science project but not so sánh great for making noodles.

Boiling water eliminates the melting effect and also activates the elasticity of the tapioca starch. Heat the water in small sauce pan on the stove and have it ready to lớn go. Be careful if you will be kneading by hand because the water will make the dough very hot to lớn handle. Mix first with a spoon then once slightly cooled, continue with your hands. I lượt thích to lớn use stand mixer to lớn avoid burning myself, as well as speeding up the process.

If you tự have this melting effect, simply place the dough in the microwave and heat on high for 1-2 minutes and resume as usual.

Serves 3-4


  • 1-3/4 cups regular rice flour
  • 2 cups tapioca flour/starch (can substitute with potato starch)
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
