@Italian notes: it is too wide for fettuccine; perfect for even-shaped manti
@Rachel K. It is for cutting pasta into a square, hundreds of squares for manti
@doggybloggy: you are right, you cut one way then perpendicular and you get the perfect square for manti
@Rosa: right the pasta is called manti
This kind of peanut sweets are very popular I think all over the arab world, specially in the times of feast. But living in Egypt for many years now, I have never heard of or seen anyone making it at home. It is always bought from special shops.
A pasta cutter! I’ve been looking for one and can’t seem to find one in the Atlanta, GA area. I think there are some where you can adjust the width of the pasta. I am looking forward to seeing what you make with it.
:)) It’s for making our delicious dish,Turkish MANTI. As you know Mantı is;stuffed mince meat in square shape pasta, and boil in boiling salty water then put onmantı-pasta the plate you can serve them yogurt with garlic and tomato sauce. The important thing is What for you’ll use it.
@Coleen: You are right, it is for cutting pasta but it is stationary because it is meant for one specific pasta only : Manti
@Saba: Close, the Turkish or Armenian version, manti!
@Tobias: Not for baklava, but could be used to cut phyllo for sure!
@Deana: it is for a noodle, manti; the other pasta cutter have adjustable blades
@Steve: You are right, specifically for manti which is made with pasta dough and stuffed like an open ravioli
@Shreela:Could be used for these purposes I suppose! However here it is for manti only
@Alaiyo: You are right, again it is specificallly for manti
@Liz: You are right too, it will cut the manti into an even square
@Tom: Sorry but love your ideas!
I was thinking papardelle – a very wide noodle. That would have come in very handy when I made Manti. I think I used a pizza wheel, but I tend to wobble when I do that and don’t always get even lines. You could probably use it for halva too, if you inverted it out of the pan first. Or heck, even fudge. Hmmmm … I think I might have to keep an eye out for one of these. 🙂
