Simple And Easy Ways to Do Homemade Egg Noodles, Your Kids Would Love It!
Some kids love noodles and pasta. My kids really love freshly homemade egg noodles. Here's your one-stop guide to making the best homemade egg noodles!
Some kids just love noodles and pasta instead of rice. My kids are like that: they really love to slurp smooth and freshly homemade egg noodles.
In fact homemade egg noodles are a lot easier to make than you really think. Once you make them fresh, you might never want to buy those dried store bought ones anymore. The recipe is really simple, you just need to remember the one egg to 100g flour ratio.
What You Will Need To Do Homemade Egg Noodles
(this recipe makes 5 servings)
500g Plain Flour
15g Salt (you can reduce this if you like or omit it completely for healthier noodles)
2g sodium bicarbonate (this is also optional)
I’ll be very honest and tell you that I whacked all the ingredients in the Thermomix and had it knead for me for 10 minutes. But you can totally do this by hand (I have done it before), it will just be your arm workout for the day – ok, maybe the week. If you have a stand mixer, you can use that too, with a dough hook attachment on.
If you are kneading by hand just make a small well and crack the eggs in along with the salt. You can certainly make this in a mixing bowl if you want less mess, although it would be harder to knead.
Once the dough is formed, let it rest for about 10-20 minutes before rolling it out. If you don’t own a manual pasta machine, you can always roll it out to about 3-5mm thick and cut it with a knife. It would look rustic and thicker but still delicious, almost like pan mee.
Roll them into sheets and coat them generously with flour to prevent it from sticking.
You see what I mean by it’s just so much easier if you have a pasta machine?
Toss the noodles in more flour and group them into portion size.
Blanch them in boiling water for about 3 minutes(depending on how thick you cut your noodles), then plunge it in cold water to rinse off excess flour and back into the boiling water again to warm up. You can have the noodles with soup or dry tossed in fried shallots oil, salt and tiny splash of light sauce. Serve with mince meat cooked in soy sauce or any meat you prefer.
