These rustic, hand-rolled, homemade noodles are the perfect companion to a spicy, chilli sauce – they’re bouncy, chewy and just plain ol’ delicious. And they freeze well, too! Make every attempt to get the right flour so that you get the best consistency… and I can’t emphasise enough the need to knead! At least 10 minutes will give you optimum bite.

HOMEMADE CHINESE WHEAT NOODLES

PREP TIME

5 minutes

COOK TIME

20 minutes (plus 30 minutes resting)

SERVES

8

Ingredients

400g (14 oz) high protein (bread or pizza) flour, plus extra for dusting 

1 tsp salt 

200ml (7 fl oz) water 

Steps

Place the flour and salt in a large bowl. Mix to combine. Pour in the water and use a fork to mix until the dough loosely comes together. Then tip out onto your benchtop. Knead for 10 minutes or until the dough is smooth and bounces back when you press your finger into the dough. 

Cover and rest for 30 minutes. 

Dust your benchtop with plenty of flour. Use a rolling pin to roll out the dough to about 2mm (1/16 inch) thick. Fold both sides of the dough in, sprinkling each with flour as you go. Then slice into thin noodles, and gently open out and stretch. 

To cook the noodles, bring a large pot of water to the boil. Add the noodles and cook for 2-3 minutes or until just al dente but still chewy. Drain and use in stir-fries, noodle soups or simply toss with your favourite noodle sauce!

Notes:

– Noodles can be frozen in portions for up to 6 months. Cook from frozen when you’re ready to use them. 

– Make a quick spicy sauce for your noodles by mixing 3 tbsp chilli oil, 3 tbsp soy sauce, 2 tsp sweet dark soy sauce, 1 tsp sesame oil, 1 tbsp white vinegar and sliced spring onions (scallions). Toss with warm noodles and serve!
