Ensure the vermicelli is drained well and pat dry with some paper towels. Heat 3 tablespoons of oil in a wok or frying pan on medium-high heat. Once the oil is hot, add the vermicelli and fry for 6-7 minutes, flipping the noodles over halfway, until crispy. Remove the noodles from heat once they are crispy, and place on a serving plate. 
Heat the remaining 3 tablespoons of oil in a clean wok or large frying pan on high heat. Once hot, stir fry the ginger, garlic, coriander stalks and chilli for 1 minute or until the garlic starts to brown lightly.
Add the pippies and hot water, stir quickly, then place a lid on the wok or frying pan. Allow the pippies to steam for 2-3 minutes or until they open. Discard any pippies that do not open.
