Rice Noodle Salad

In Mandalay, Rice noodle salad, “Nanlat Thote” ,is a very popular breakfast food. Three size of noodles are used in this salad; small, medium or big. Now I am using middle size noodle in this article. Gravy which includes oil, chili powder and onion mix with meat is the main ingredient of this salad. Fish ball can use instead of meat.
