In fact, it is difficult to cook vermicelli well with high fire, and there are often "hard core" and "sandwich". This is because vermicelli is very dry and hard. If cooked with high fire, it will suddenly form a layer of mucous membrane on the outer layer, preventing hot water from penetrating into the inner layer. Heat can not enter the vermicelli, which will accelerate the boiling of water. The vermicelli roll up and down with the boiling, collide and rub with each other, and gelatinize the starch on the outside, Thicken the soup and affect the heat transfer capacity of water.

When cooking vermicelli, first, add more water, because the vermicelli also has a 'rise' process, which needs to absorb some water. Second, pay attention to slow fire to make the heat go in layer by layer with the water from outside to inside, so that the vermicelli can be cooked and boiled thoroughly, the noodle soup is clear and the taste is good.
