This recipe is for homemade egg noodles. It requires 2 cups of all purpose flour, 1/4 teaspoon of salt, 2 medium eggs, and 1/4 cup of water. To make the noodles, the ingredients are first combined in a large bowl and mixed together until a stiff dough is formed. The dough is then kneaded for 5-10 minutes to make it smooth. The dough is then covered and left to rest for 20 minutes to relax the gluten. After that, the dough is rolled out thinly and cut into strips or desired shape. The noodles are left to rest and dry for 20-30 minutes before cooking in a boiling broth for 25-30 minutes.
- 2 cups flour (all purpose)
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 2 medium eggs
- 1/4 cup water
In a large bowl combine the flour and salt. Make a hole in the flour, like a well. Crack the eggs into the hole. Using you hands or large spoon mash the eggs and flour together making a coarse and crumbly mixture. Add the water. Mix again until you have a nice, stiff dough. Knead the dough a few minutes to get it nice and smooth (5-10 min.) You may need to dust it with a little flour to keep it from sticking to your hands. When you are satisfied with your ball of noodle dough cover it with a tea towel and let it rest for about 20 minutes. This is to relax the gluten in the dough, making it easier to roll out.
Use a rolling pin and a floured surface roll dough out real thin, as the noodles will poof out when they cook. Cut into strips or the the shape you want. Let the noodles rest and dry for about 20-30 min if you can. Cook in a broth that’s boiling and then reduce to simmer for 25-30 minutes.
