Selam everybody..... Merhaba from Türkiye.

Beside rice, noodle is staple meal in Indonesia.
In fact we have so many type of noodle commonly consumed e.g; 
1. egg noodle (mie telor)--see my homemade egg noodle here and here.
2. Cellophane noodles (so'un) -- made of potato starch mix with green bean flour. The texture is very soft, suitable for soup, fried so'un noodle or filling for Indonesian fried dumpling. Sold in dry form, soak in hot water until soft and then ready to be processed into various kinds of cuisine.
3. Kwetiau / Rice stick noodles. Made by steam rice flour and water.
4. Bihun / Rice Vermicelli. Rice vermicelli is made of rice flour, the color is pure white and the texture is very soft. This noodle is very easy to cook so no need to be boiled, just soaked in hot water. Usually sold in dry form in plastic packaging.

Beside those noodle İ mentioned above we also familiar with neighbouring countries noodle, such as soba, somen noodles, or ramen from Japan.
Or some noodle type from China like Misua and Hokkien noodle.

Beyond the wide varieties of the noodle, the way we cook it also has no boundary because in Indonesian has many cultures and bring their culture into Indonesian culinary in their own ways.
