Bojifen (rice noodles made on bamboo tray), also called stone-milled rice noodles, is a local traditional snack of many places, such as Nanning, Qinzhou and Beiliu. Bojifen in Tanseng Village, Xiaoyi Town of Hengxian County, however, is the most special and on the list of the seventh batch of representative intangible cultural heritage projects of Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region.
In Tanseng Village, there are special mills producing rice milk. Without adding any chemical components, the milled rice milk has a natural rice flavor. To make chewy Bojifen, the concentration of the rice milk and the thickness of rice noodles should be appropriate. First, soak and soften the selected rice, and then grind the rice into milk with a stone mill. When water boils, brush the bamboo tray with oil, pour the appropriate amount of rice milk onto the bamboo tray, shake it gently with both hands, and then put it into a big pot, cover it, and then dish it up in a few minutes. Peel off the thin rice noodle, roll it up, cut it into small pieces, put them on a plate, and mix them with soy sauce. The rich rice flavor is very appetizing.
