Homemade noodles are so simple to make and require only 4 ingredients: flour, salt, baking powder and egg yolk. You can cut your noodles any size you fancy.
Took shortcuts. Like the other reviewers, I also had to add some water to this recipe to get the dough to bind. I used my bread machine to mix the dough. Put the ingredients in the machine, selected "dough" setting, and let the machine mix it for 10 minutes, then removed the dough. It was perfect and easy to roll out. Noodles turned out delicious in our chicken soup! - 08 Oct 2008
This was the first time I ever made homemade noodles, and I had so much fun! Instead of mixing the ingredients by hand, I used a food processor. I processed the flour, salt and egg yolks (omitted the baking powder) until mixture formed fine crumbs. Then with the processor running, I slowly added about 5T of water through the feed tube just until the dough forms a ball. (Without the water, the dough was too dry and would not form into a ball.) I let the dough ball rest for 10 minutes before dividing it into quarters and proceeding with recipe. After rolling, I let the four sheets of dough rest uncovered for 20 minutes. Then I loosely rolled up dough swiss-roll style and cut into strips. Lastly, I let the strips dry on cooling racks for a couple of hours. The noodles are then cooked in chicken stock for about 2 to 3 minutes with baby bok choy, Vietnamese beef balls and sliced fish cakes. What a delicious meal! - 08 Oct 2008
If the dough is dry and crumbly before rolling, adding egg yolks will easily fix the problem. We often fix them with beef or chicken for a family dinner. - 08 Oct 2008
