THE ART OF HOMEMADE NOODLES – How to make Chinese Noodles At Home (Recipe)

Welcome to Souped-Up Recipes In China there are restaurants in every corner serving handmade noodles. Those restaurants are very busy because their noodles taste amazingly fresh. There are many ways to make your own noodles Today, I’m going to share you my version. It has simple ingredients but requires a bit of patience. Let’s get started. To make this noodle you need strong flour. Try to look for bread flour in your local store. Do not use cake flour or all-purpose flour because the texture of your noodle should be bouncy. Bread flour contains a lot of proteins and gluten So it can be stretchy a lot once it’s made in a dough. We’ll do that later. Add ½ teaspoon of salt Give that a mix You need 2 eggs and some water. These two together should weigh 5.5 ounces because every egg is Different so add the egg in first and add some water until it’s 5.5 ounces If you’re vegetarian you can skip the egg and add 4.5 oz of water. Slowly pour it into the flour and use chopstick just stir it like this. Now we can start kneading it. At first you will see it’s dry and messy It will feel like it’s impossible to knead it until it becomes smooth Do not add any water it is very important to keep the balance between water and flour. Just be patient. Try to get all the flour to stick together. After five minutes you’ll get something like this. It doesn’t look good, right? Don’t worry. Just cover it. Let it sit for 30 minutes We’re going to check back. This is 30 minutes later. You can feel that the dough has become softer; it is more pliable. Knead it for another 5 to 8 minutes use this folding technique: fold it again and again. This technique helps push the air out it also makes the fiber, and the protein becomes stronger so the texture of your noodle will come out bouncy. I have been kneading this for about 8 minutes. So, this is what you are looking for it is very smooth. In Chinese we call it a hard dough because the flour contains less water compared to other doughs. It is very tough which is exactly what we need. the noodle will stay bouncy and firm for long time; it won’t be soggy and moist. Now we can go to the next step: roll the dough into thin sheets The amount I gave is enough for 2 to 3 people but the rolling mat is not big enough, so I cut in half. Sprinkle some flour in case this sticks to the rolling mat. You really need to do some hard work here because it will take a while to make it thin. You need it to be 1 to 2 millimeters thick. Make sure it is even so it cooks properly Sprinkle some flour on it evenly. Make sure you get the other side too. This prevents the noodle from sticking together. Fold it like this. Use a sharp knife to cut it like this. Do not push down with the hand you’re holding it with or else the noodle will stick together. I recommend 1.5 millimeter. The thicker you cut it the harder your noodle is going to be. You can play with it a little bit to see what you like. Check it out you! have perfect homemade noodles. If you want to save it then add some flour in case it clumps up. This will last 2 days in the fridge. Now I’m going to show you one way how I like to eat them: put it in boiling water for 2 to 3 minutes Don’t go away, because they overflow easily Up to 2 minutes you can take one out and try it to see if you like it. Once you think it’s perfect you just take them out, get rid of the excess water and put it in the bowl. Add one tablespoon of soy sauce, one teaspoon of Chinese black vinegar one teaspoon of dark soy sauce one teaspoon of Minced Ginger, one teaspoon of Minced Garlic, some spring onion some cilantro, and 1-2 teaspoon of chili flake (depending on your taste) Heat up 2.5 Tablespoon of oil. I’m using vegetable oil. Pour the hot oil on top of the noodles Try to put it on those aromatic to release the flavor. Mix everything together. That looks so good! Mmm! Smells so good! The aroma is a mix of all the ingredients. Feels like I’m a food heaven now — can’t wait to eat! Mmm! The noodle tastes so fresh and delicious! Seriously forget about those pre-packed noodles: if you have the time and patience to make this whoever you make it for will be so surprised to hear that you made it!

  1. Thank you!!
    We have to make everything in this family gluten-free. So, Ima have to experiment with some gf flours and see if we can come close to this delicious looking recipe. I'll let y'all know if it turns out OK!

  2. I'm one of those who cannot tolerate cilantro. When I lived in China it there was some difficulty in translating cilantro into Chinese. 🙁

  3. So i can not for the life of me find a fresh yakisoba noodle recipe online after doing research i found the name means buckwheat noodles but theyre not buckwheat noodles that are used in fact they are a chinese style noodle would this be considered a recipe for yakisoba noodle?

  4. This is why pasta extruder machines were invented. Love fresh noodles but hate the work of cutting the noodles.

  5. I just made my pork dumplings after I've watched your videos. I also made the wrappers from scratch. My son with special was so addicted to it. I just hope to check on the dipping sauce to make my dumplings perfect. Looking forward to making noodles rather than buying instant noodles.

  6. This recipe is great, just one suggestion you keep saying mililiter and that is a liquid measurement. The correcct term would milimeter, whish is a width or thickness term. I can't wait to try this recipe.

  7. I seriously don't understand how you or anyone can get the dough so thin, I'll roll for hours and still it's never thin enough and I give up or end up making disgustingly large noodles

  8. Just tried making noodles after watching your noodles,,,,,,
    No I'm homeless , just burn down my whole house trying to be a master chef

  9. I made this today (i only had 4 oz of bread flour) so I had to reduce the recipe amounts, but it turned out to be a perfect serving size for two people. I added a little bit of AP flour while needing the dough, as it was still sticky when i mixed the ingredients. It was fun getting the dough to be as flat as possible! I tried your recipe at the end and it was DELICIOUS, though I left out the green onions, dark soy sauce, and cilantro because i didn't have them in my kitchen, but just the soy sauce, garlic, ginger, and chile powder made an EXCELLENT flavor. You only need a small amount of hot oil, btw! Thanks so much for the recipe 🙂

  10. Instead of converting oz to gram, you can use the proportions: 11 parts of flour to 5,5 parts of liquid (e.g. 100g of flour, 50g of liquid).

  11. In india we daily make dough of wheat flour and roll it to make chapati. It's our daily food. Healthy n delicious

  12. I know some people may be offended but I mean no harm I know how hard it is to learn a second language but her broken English just makes the video 10x more entertaining

  13. Thats also delicious with soup
    Especially with fresh shrimp, scallop, bamboo schutts, minced fork and top with spring onions

  14. I like the way you explain every step of the recipe. Here in Romania we make the noodles in a very similar way .we make chicken soup with homemade noodles . We spread the dough and we roll it and then we cut it with a knife , we let the noodles dry and then we add it in the soup
