: i have been trying that method with cones to get even thinner lines
: than what i usually get. but it seems that if the paste is too
thick,
: the lines tend to break somewhere in between. and if the paste is
too
: watery and close together, they would merge.
: is there any way to make the paste more stringy?
: hmm.......... guess i'll have to play around with it more..
:
That's a very good point. It does have to be a balance, doesn't it.
The powder i have now is very stringy (my Moroccan spring crop, link
below) which helps. I have heard that fenugreek or okra can make
your paste stringier but I have never tried this. Nick says that
adding egg whites to the paste makes it really, really stringy. I
will have to try this some day, along with my 800 other experiments I
want to do!!
