0.5 grams kansui*

dusting flour or cornstarch
Equipment:

* Kansui helps maintain texture and taste in noodles. The main components of this liquid were sodium and potassium carbonate and phosphate. Modern Kansui is made directly from one or a combination of these elements. In its absense however, lye may be used but this gives the product a soapy after-taste.

Procedure:

In a separatd bowl, dissolve iodized salt and kansui separately in equal amounts of water.

Combine flour in the mixing bowl then add the dissolved kansui. Combine and mix thoroughly with a spatula.

Combine iodized salt solution and vegetable oil to the kansui-flour mixture. Manually, mix by hand to form a mass.

When the mass is firm and slippery, pass this through the roller of the pasta maker (use setting #1). Gradually adjust the setting until it reaches #7. Spread the thin dough sheet. Apply dusting flour or cornstarch so that the dough does not get sticky.

Cut the dough sheet. To facilitate cutting, fold the sheet into several layers. Use a 3-inch diameter round cookie cutter. You may also cut the sheet into squares or triangles using a sharp knife.

To keep them fresh, wrap the molo wrappers in clean plastic bags before putting them in the freezer or refrigerator.
