Tried to make rice noodles...

Ended up with a sticky pile of mess.

Following a recipe from a Vietnamese cookbook, I tried to make my own favorite noodles (as from NYC's Saigon Grill), thick and a little slippery flat sheets of noodles, on my own. You are supposed to put a pot of water to boil on the stove, then cover the top with cheesecloth and secure it with string (not a rubber band, as I did, which of course melted and pinged away), then ladle a rice flour/water batter onto the stop, covering it and steaming for 2 to 3 minutes. When I tried to remove the finished noodle, I just got a clumpy, semi-hardened in spots, clump of stuff. I tried cooking longer to no avail. Has anyone else done this successfully???
