Home-made flat noodles

A couple of days back, when I was watching the contestants of Masterchef Australia make pasta, I was wondering if I could make noodles at home. I decided to give it a try. I googled for the recipe but most of the recipes asked for eggs. I wanted to make an eggless variety. So after browsing a little, I decided to experiment and used the following recipe to make the noodles.

Ingredients: Semolina 1/4 cup
                  Maida 1tbsp
                  Whole wheat atta 3 tbsp

Cooked noodles


Mix all the above with a little water to make a dough. Knead the dough for 5-10 minutes with a little oil to make a smooth and silky dough. Let it rest for 30 minutes or more. The dough should be stringy when pulled but should not stick to the surface of the bowl/rolling pin.  Then take a lemon-sized ball of the dough and roll out as thin as possible without adding any more flour. Meanwhile boil about three cups of  water.  Add 1 tsp of salt and a few drops of cooking oil. Now cut thin strips from the rolled out dough and put each strip one by one into the pot of boiling water. Cook on a medium flame for 5-6 minutes. These strips need lesser time to cook than store-bought noodles. Once cooked, drain the noodles and put in a bowl of cold water. When cooled, drain and set aside. Serve with stir-fried vegetables/seafood/chicken.
