The Legendary Ulu Yam noodles (II)
I was introduced to a very kind old lady who is the owner and producer of the noodles. She then cleaned her hand and mixed up the flour and water and some other ingredients that have been placed in the big container to form dough.
Then, the dough is passed through this machine to make it firm and rigid. According to my uncle, in old times they used this machine to thin the solidified latex after added with formic acid.
The dough is then run through a few times with this machine and slightly decrease the thickness each time to form a thinly piece.
Next, the fine thinly piece is passed through this machine to make it even thinner.
Look at my cousin brother. He was helping out to thin the pieces.
The aunty then cut the piece into about 6 inches each
And they are sent to the ‘noodle-slicing-machine’.
Ta-da~ with no additional of preservation, no additional of colour and the finely, natural, springy noodles are produced!
Packets of noodles for sales~
PS:~ thanks to the lovely old lady and her son-in-law for showing us the process on noodles producing. Sorry to all as I don’t know how to use the flowerish descriptions and adjectives to write on this post. So, just let the picture to tell you the story~
