Yin si juan (Chinese: 银丝卷; literally "silver thread roll") is a traditional dish of Beijing cuisine.


First, baking soda is added to flour, and are mixed thoroughly. The dough is then stretched and multiplied (similarly to lamian), and lard is rubbed over the noodles.

The resulting product would first be baked for six to seven minutes, and then either steamed or baked again until it turns golden brown.
