Rice flakes are a variety of pasta or noodle made from a mixture of rice flour and water. Their preparation involves the par boiling of rice grains to get them soft enough to be shaped, thereafter the rice paste is rolled and flattened into flat sheets and left to dry. Once the sheets have completely dried, they are then cut into small squares, rectangles or triangles to form rice flakes!
