Homemade Thick Rice Noodles aka Laksa Noodles


I have been wanting to learn how to make Thick Rice Noodles from scratch but have been procrastinating for a while. This is one of my favourite noodles especially eaten with curry soup or laksa soup. Finally , I managed to get it done when the Potato Riser I ordered arrived a few weeks ago. I do not have a Muruku maker at home to press out the dough but the recipe stated that I could use a potato riser instead. I thought it would be a great idea to get a potato riser instead of a Muruku maker. A Potato Ricer  is a tool used to rice boiled potato making them more light and fluffier in texture, great for making Gnocchi. That  helps me decide to get a potato ricer. Killing two birds with one stone :)

This morning I decided to try my hands at making Thick Rice Noodles and I was glad that noodles turned out great, where texture is concerned. Light and springy and not starchy at all. I used Angie's recipe from her You tube channel. Her easy step by step tutuorial video is a great help and thus I was able to get it done well. I greased the inside of the Potato Ricer with vegetable oil so that the dough will slide out easier when extruded out from the tool into the boiling water. I had so much fun making them and this recipe is a keeper.

note: once cooked and taken out from the boiling water, the noodles has to be
placed in cold water

it is best to get a food grade stainless steel potato ricer 
for making this Thck Rice Noodle

the dough should be soft yet not too sticky
