Home-made Noodles

Yes, you heard it right. Make our own maggi noodles at home - with fresh ingredients, no additives added, no MSG, no colours, no preservatives...How cool is that? And that its very simple and easy. Here you go.

Ingredients (enough for 2 persons)

Egg - 1
All purpose flour - 1/2 - 3/4 cup (depends on the size of the egg)


Make a tight dough using the above two ingredients. Adjust the flour as per moisture content in egg, Do not add water or oil. Roll it out into thin sheet. Fold as shown in picture. Make sure you dust enough flour on both sides of the rolled out dough before folding; else it would not open up into strands easily.

Cut into thin strips using a sharp knife.
