    Serves: 5 

    • 250g Durum wheat flour
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
    • 3 eggs
    • water as needed

    Prep:30min  ›  Extra time:2hr drying  ›  Ready in:2hr30min 

    1. Combine flour, salt and baking powder. Mix in eggs and enough water to make the dough workable. Knead dough until stiff. Roll into ball and cut into quarters. Using 1/4 of the dough at a time, roll flat to about 2mm, using flour as needed to prevent sticking. Peel up and roll from one end to the other. Cut roll into 1cm strips. Noodles should be about 8 to 10cm long depending on how thin it was originally flattened. Let dry for 1 to 3 hours.
    2. Cook like any pasta or instead of drying first cook it fresh but make sure water is boiling and do not allow to stick. It takes practice to do this right.

    Very easy to make added 1/4 teaspoon of garlic powder and 1/4 teaspoon of chilli powder for a bit off added flavour very little water is needed about 1-2 tablespoons as I used 3 large free range eggs.  -  26 Apr 2017


    My noodles turned out well overall. The main complaint I have with this recipe is that no ballpark amount of water is indicated, and I initially added too much (even though I've made similar egg noodles before). I had to add a lot more flour to counteract my mistake, and it may have impacted the flavor. To dry these noodles faster I spread them on cookie sheets and put them in an oven set to 175 for about 35 minutes. It worked very well. I suggest making a big batch (maybe double or triple) and freezing them to keep on hand so that you can have homemade taste without all the prep work each time!  -  15 Dec 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Easy to make and traditional home cooking at its best, my family went wild for these noodles in simple chicken soup.  -  07 Feb 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
