Many years ago I ate this every Motzei Shabbat at the Habad shule in Meah Shearim. It was always served with dill pickles and a small glass of vodka. Such memories.

Works with gluten-free rice stick noodles.
Made this for Shabbos with very fine rice stick noodles. I used half the recipe and it turned out lovely. Add extra pepper; it's not authentic without. :-)

My beloved father in law taught me to make this dish over 30 years ago but I have modified it a bit by eliminating the oil and adding toasted slivered almonds and cinnamon. All of my children love this dish even though they are all adults now! It is delicious warm or cold.
