Csiga Noodles~ “Snail-shaped”
NOTE: These noodles now come as a set of 4 packages of noodles!
These noodles are wonderful in clear broth soups and add in a little bit of fun! You will receive four packages of noodles that each weigh 7 oz.
Csiga means snail. The csiga noodle was often made by hand (and still is) using a grooved board and a rolling tool. This csiga noodle is machine made. We love to use this little noodle in a clear broth beef or chicken soup or in Italian wedding soup. You will receive 4 packages of the same noodle, each weighing 7 oz.

An overview of the noodles we carry from Hungary and their typical uses:
Diamond ~ Zabkocka Very small diamonds for a clear broth soup. 8.8 oz.
Thread Noodles ~ Cérnametélt These “thread sized” noodles are extra fine for soup. We use them with clear broth soups though some people use it as an angel hair pasta for light veggie/pasta dishes. Cooks very quickly. 8.8. oz.
Tarhonya ~ Egg Farvel This is a pasta for paprikas, soups or a delicious side dish. Sauté an onion in butter/oil mixture until soft. Add tarhonya and lightly brown. Add water and keep adding water (bring to a boil) until the tarhonya are as tender as you would like them. This is a noodle you are re-hydrating. Sometimes I also sneak in a little bit of chicken broth and paprika. 8.8 oz.
