Soupy Syakpa (Homemade Noodles)

This soup is a very typical Sherpa (Tibetan call it Thukpa) soup especially popular in winter. For over 11 year , I have been living with a Sherpa family in Kathmandu.  It is easy to make, quick and wonderfully warming during cold days.  Tibetan traditionally use mutton, beef, or yak meat. In Tibet, yak is often used for this recipe but it might be hard to come by in many regions. So we can also use chicken. This is one of my favorite soup of all time- but only with vegetables since I’m a vegetarian.  I frequently prepare this dish, and I have already used it many times when people come over for dinner.  So far everyone has enjoyed it.  It is very easy to make and the homemade noodles are to die for.   I have made it with buff , vegetables and both types make for a great tasting soup.
