Here's your noodles, till te paise dedo, do you have your own bag or would like to buy one Sir?

Now that's what I'm talking about. Nice one, bhenji, looks like I'll be making a trek to Sainsburys tomorrow.

I have my own bag (I'm not made of money) ?

Bhenji, what's the deal with rice noodles? I understand they're made from white rice, so do rice noodles have the same downside to them as white rice? When I do eat rice, it's brown.

thing is these noodles are better than white rice because they are not as heavy in carb content per cooked volume and besides if you use in a stirfry you'd have way more veg so not get the spike so much due to fibre of plant matter. It's nice to have a change sometimes , I use them in high vitamin mineral density chinese veggie soups or as an add in to a stirfry and not a lot .

Yeah, it was the carbs aspect of white rice I was concerned about. Well I'll give these rice noodles a try and see how they feel to me. My first port of call will be those eggless wholewheat noodles from Sainsburys. Those would be lovely with a stir fry.

Had same issue bro. Came across these which are made from some Japanese root, they have zero carbs! Warning, they can be bland, and from my experience they work best when you go spicy with whatever you are making. Ingredients are -

Purified Water, Organic Konjac flour and Oat fibre (Juroat® flour)

For allergens, see ingredients in bold.

I used to get them when Holland & Barretts had their get one and get second for penny sales on. If you see that, jump on it and stock up on them, they have long shelf lives.

Awesome stuff, brother. I'm always up for making things spicy with ginger, chillies, etc, so that won't be an issue.

I've had a problem with carbs in non desi food since I turned 30 a couple of years back. It doesn't sit right with me at all. Even apparently okay stuff like wholewheat pasta and brown rice I can't eat too much of for some reason. Carbs in desi food, no problem, but English stuff? Nah, it congeals inside me whilst I'm eating, lol.

Thanks again.

Try the Quinoa and tell me about, then I'll try it lol.

i tried quinoa and belief me its delicious and easy to cook too. You can have it as a replacement for rice. Its only the cost factor that jumps in to prevent frequent use. You can have it with your normal dhaal sabji and especially sholeya dhi sabji,

judging by the quick survey this is a mega deal worth stocking up

after reading this though I feel that the market is profiteering off this grain to detriment of the poor yet again

could make cauliflower 'rice' instead

I'm very much against all the hyped superfoods ...our ancestors didn't need all that to survive and thrive ...I will agree to safeguard essential minerals need to ONLY use seasalt which is minimally processed (like cornish/maldon) or if you are feeling flush himalayan (I worry about open casting mining for this in the hills)

    • Do you have sources for this?
    • In urdu we also use 'Mauze' so i doubt if it is hindi word.It sounds like a persian one.Indians have problem prouncing words which end with sound 'z'.Just like Mumtaz Mehal became Mumtaj Mehal and now just Taj Mehal.
    • i have no issue using persian,hindi,english words in my day to day conversations in punjab.I just though a good opportunity to learn "shuddh" punjabi. 
    • Sikhism needs neither a reformation nor a philosophy of free will. Reformations are for religions that are at a primitive tribal level in the first place. Sikhi starts off with Guru Nanak Ji feeding people langar, and preaching meditation of Satnam. If you start off with capturing war booty and sex slaves killing all the males, yeah, you need a reformation. Philosophy is (mostly) for people trying desperately to understand the universe without real divine knowledge. These types of efforts are called ਸਿਆਣਪਾਂ in Gurbani. (You did you Japji this morning, right?) All of these sianapan don't amount to a hill of beans. We don't have the burning need for philosophy that Westerners do because we can obtain complete knowledge via simran. ਪ੍ਰਭ ਕੈ ਸਿਮਰਨਿ ਸਭੁ ਕਿਛੁ ਸੁਝੈ ॥
    • it's my fault, i should have phrased things a bit better. Basically based on the data he gathered same sex couples are more likely to settle into a routine and are less likely to do things out of said routine (such as cheating, which according to the data he gathered was surprisingly low compared to straight couples). By similar attributes I mean people like them in terms of personality and taste. In straight couples you can usually note a sort of polarity in the way they behave and their personalities.  Again this is based on one study, nothing official or on a large scale really.
