Dried Pasta-Like Wheels -- What are they and how do I cook them?

liu | | Nov 8, 2006 04:37 PM

In a Mexican Market we purchased some orange, a little translucent, glossy "wheels" that are about the size of a quarter. They were in a bulk bin, and we were told that they needed to be cooked to be edible. What are they, and how do I prepare them?

Similarly, in an Indian Market we purchased some wheels that are a little smaller - dime-sized - and they are called Potato Rackets. Are these the same as the ones from the Mexican Market? How do I prepare these? Are they similar to pasta? What do I use them for?

Thanks for any help! It is always fun to try new items, but this time I am stuck! I don't even know how to look them up. How do I google them?
