Photographer's Note

Shot taken from the same location from my previous upload, in Gulja Uighur old quarter.

Laghman or pulled noodle, the Uighur version of spaghetti, is the most basic food commonly found in Xinjiang. Watching this being made is greatly entertaining. The speed at which a cook transforming the dough into bowlfull of noodles by banging, pulling, twisting into long thinner strings and managing to keep all the strands separate is really incredible. Laghman is quickly boiled and then served with stew of mutton or beef, tomatoes, chillies and other vegee, sometimes the noodles are stir-fried along with the same ingredient.
