Soaking Rice Noodles for Pad Thai

CindyJ | Jan 2, 2012 09:07 AM

I've searched through several CH posts and read through several "authentic" Pad Thai recipes. I'm left confused about the best way to soak the ban pho (rice noodles). I've seen directions that call for soaking in hot tap water for 20 minutes, soaking in cool or lukewarm water for 40 minutes, and soaking in cold water for 1 hour. Can someone tell me which directions I should follow? Or will each of these yield pretty much the same result? Thanks!
