Home made organic noodle recipe

Home made organic noodle is delicious and wholesome. However, for a starter, all the ingredients can be quite expensive ...
To prepare the sauce base: Fish extract, natural vegetable sauce, sesame vege mix, thick soy sauce (click the picture above for a larger photo) ...
... spring onion... chopped
A tablespoon or two of each of the sauce above... or use as according to taste. You may use other sauce as long as you like it!
Mix well!
1kg of organic flour
3 eggs + some water (I think about half cup or 100 cc) or 5 egg as you choose. If you use 5 eggs, no additional water is needed.
Mix the flour and egg. If you have a mixer, use the hook instead of K beater. Hook is slower but will ensure longer life for your machine.
Knead the flour mix ...
... into cake like this....
... and run the cake pass through this machine. First set it to the thickest (#1). Each time you run it through, remember to fold it. Run until the cake becomes a rather smooth (about 3 runs for each cake) ...
... and slowly reduce thickness (we use 1-3-7) until it reaches the desire thickness of your choice (we choose #7). Note that you only need to run through once for each setting of 3 and 7.
... finally pass it through the "cutter" side. Notice that the thin cake is laid flat over the machine and let it run as you turn. Don't squeeze the noodle as they will stick together if you do squeeze.
... place the noodle into a big pot of boiling water (stirring with a pair of long chopstick) and bring it to boil again or wait for the noodle to float to the top...
... transfer it quickly to a pot of cool water ... dip, drain and transfer it back ...
... to the boiling water. Boil and drain dry ...
... and transfer it into the sauce base. Mix well...
... and serve!
If you go out to buy the noodle making machine, make sure that you buy the one from Italy (available from Sibu) and not those made in China which doesn't last.
Let me know how it goes if you do attempt to make the (organic) noodle.
Note that you need to use high fire or the noodle may become too soft!
The above was from Eric organic kitchen.

p/s: If you want to make noodle soup, refer to my earlier post.

Hi William,

Good sharing. What is the brand from Italy? I think I want to venture into this. For home use lah.

Cheers,

Eve, I think the brand can be read off my earlier post. If you wish to buy, I can get Eric to buy one for you from Sibu.

Goodie!!! I've always wanted to try and make my own noodles. Now I can give it a try.... Hope I can manage. LOL!!!

stp: Just give me a call if you are not too sure. It is actually very easy. Make sure that you control the liquid in the flour. If it is too wet, then it cannot be used.
