Morning morning ^^
We had snow yesterday, but it didn’t last very long since the temperature isn’t cold enough yet. Very wet. It was like autumn the day before yesterday and in a night turned into winter. Kind of crazy.
Lately I’ve been obsessed with homemade noodle, especially when I’m making mie ayam, I still haven’t found the prefect store-bought noodle for it yet. And for me personally mie ayam is all about the noodle (the chicken too of course) but if it has a good noodle even with just a simple chicken with soy sauce will do.
It was a lot of work before, when I didn’t have the pasta maker yet. I had to roll the dough with rolling pin (wasn’t an easy job to get the dough as thin as I want) but since I bought the pasta maker, making noodle is so easy and quick (just a bit messy, still :P). You can see my hand cut noodle here and purple noodle here.
I use the recipe from this Indonesian blog, the blog has hundreds of Indonesian traditional recipes, you should check it out (use google translate 😉 ) but I modified the recipe a little bit. Because in Indonesia is so humid and here in Sweden is dry (especially now in winter time) and it can affect the dough as well.
Green Egg Noodle
- 250 gr flour
- 50 gr tapioca starch
- 2 eggs
- 1 tsp salt
- 50 ml spinach juice (from 50g spinach and 50ml water)
- 50:50 of flour and starch mixture for dusting
- Combine flour, starch, eggs and salt in a bowl. Mix everything together.
- Add spinach juice little by little while kneading the dough.
- Knead until the dough is nice and smooth. Cover it with plastic wrap and let it rest for 30 minutes.
- Prepare your working surface, sprinkle some flour-starch mixture.
- Divide the dough into 3, and start working with the thickest to the thickness you desired. Don’t forget to dust the dough before rolling it in the pasta maker.
- Once you’ve flatten all the dough, time to roll them into the spaghetti maker. And sprinkle some more 50:50 mixture so they don’t stick to each other again.
- Store in the fridge for 2 days or up to a month in the freezer.
ps: I boiled the noodle first then store it in my freezer, it will be quicker when I want to use them next time.
Until next time ^^
