Bunya Mushroom Ragout with Buckwheat noodles


30 Bunya nuts
250g mushrooms
3 white onions
2 cloves garlic
6 pepper corns
1 bay leaf
500ml water
olive oil
200g buckwheat noodles

Cook peeled bunya nut halves in water with bay leaf and pepper corns for 60 minutes.
Allow to cool for a couple of hours. Drain and set the stock aside. Discard pepper and bay leaf.
Separate the thin stock from the top for cooking noodles and the thick stock for the sauce.
Peel and chop onions. Fry slowly until glassy. Add garlic pieces.
Push onion and garlic to one side of the pan.
Fry the mushrooms in batches adding more olive oil as necessary. The mushrooms should fry and not become soggy.
When each batch is ready, push it to the side next to and under the mushrooms and add some more.

When all the mushrooms are fried, add the drained bunya nuts. Stir it all together.
Add a few tablespoons of thick stock, just enough so that it has a thick sauce, not watery.

Serve with buckwheat noodles cooked in the remaining thin bunya stock with extra water as necessary.
