Hunza Homemade Noodles
Hunza Homemade noodles, Laqsha are used in traditional Chapchy dawdo, tumuru dawdo (Wild thyme soup) which is a famous herbal soup for cold, cough, and flu remedy. Traditionally it was made with organic wheat flour but now we make it with any flour available on hand.
Ingredients for Hunza Homemade Noodles:
Wheat flour 1 ½ cups
Salt (optional) per taste
Directions of Making Hunza Homemade Noodles :
Add dry ingredients into a bowl and mix.
Knead the mixture with plain water and the dough should not be too soft. It should be slightly hard.
With the above measurements, you will get a small size dough ball. Roll it to a circular shape with a rolling pin.
We cut the homemade noodles in a variety of ways. I will show you just two ways of cutting Laqsha.
- Slightly dust the circular dough and fold it around the rolling pin. with a sharp and dry knife cut the rolled dough along the length of the rolling pin.
2.Fold the circular dough in half after dusting it. spread some more flour on the half upper side. Fold it to make a triangle. Start cutting it from the triangle tip along the width of the triangle.
Do not use a wet knife.
You should not use too much flour between the layers else you come up with an uncooked curry-like thing and not soup.
Do not use a very soft dough.
