Homemade egg noodles

Homemade egg noodles

I’m not sure how many people don’t like noodles but all those that I know like it very much. It’s like pasta in the West. In Asia, you will find loads and loads of noodles everywhere. They come in different sizes, different types and different colours. If you live there, you probably can’t be bothered to make yourselves. But I did when I was back home in Malaysia. I made my own egg noodles, also called ‘you mian‘ in Malaysia. The main reason is of course homemade egg noodles are clean and without any preservatives added. On top of that you can choose to use high quality ingredients like organic flour, organic or free range eggs, olive oil, sea salt and filtered water.

After I came to Scotland, I learned to make hand-pulled noodles which has since become another of my family favourite. To find out how to make hand-pulled noodles, which is fun to make, click Making Hand-pulled Noodles.

Here in Scotland, I usually make my own egg noodles because the ones sold in the supermarkets are not only expensive but quite low quality in texture. Besides, they are very yellow which makes me think that colouring was added to it.

Making egg noodles at home is very simple and easyHomemade egg noodles taste a lot better than store bought ones, especially here. It’s a lot easier if you have a pasta machine to make these noodles. But it’s also not difficult without one, especially if you are not making for a big family. Here I did not use a pasta machine to show that you can easily make them without one. You don’t even need to hang the noodles on a rack to dry out.

Here is my  Homemade Egg Noodles recipe. The amount is enough to make noodle soup or fried noodles for 4 persons.

2C plain flour
2 eggs (beaten)
1/2t salt
1/4C water or a little more

Add egg mixture to flour

Add egg mixture to flour

Beat the eggs with salt. Make a well in the middle of the flour and pour the egg mixture into it.

Mix the dough with chopsticks first

Mix the dough with chopsticks first

Mix it with a pair of chopsticks. Add water slowly and continue to mix. You may need more. Add just enough for the dough to come together. Don’t add too much otherwise it will become too soft after resting and would be very difficult to handle.

Egg noodle dough

Egg noodle dough

Using hand, knead the dough for a while until it is quite smooth and leave aside to rest, maybe a couple of minutes. It is quite hard. After every hour or so when you have time, knead it again. The dough will become softer. Do a couple more times and let it rest for a while before rolling it out. The more you knead it, the more chewy will be the noodles. Some people knead it 10-15minutes in one go. You can do that if you have big, strong muscles!

Cut the dough into 2

Cut the dough into 2

Flatten the dough and cut it into 2 for easier handling.

Roll the dough very thin

Roll the dough very thin

Take a piece of dough and roll it out very thin with a rolling pin. I use my big heavier rolling pin for this. Make sure to flour it so that it does not stick to the rolling pin or the dough board or table. Fold it over and roll to get it very thin.

Cut the dough into strips

Cut the dough into strips

Finally fold it over a few times from the shorter end. Make sure the edge of the folded dough is shorter than your knife for easier cutting. Use a sharp knife, cut it into strips. You can cut it thin or thick depending on your preference.

Loosen the noodles and flour

Loosen the noodles and flour

Loosen the cut noodles and flour it to prevent them from sticking to each other. You can also use corn flour to do that. In fact you can start putting a pot of water to boil as you start cutting so that when you are done with the cutting, the water also boils. In that case you only need to flour lightly like mine here.

Put the noodles to boil

Put the noodles to boil

You need quite a lot of water to boil the noodles otherwise the noodles will turn out gluey. Lift the noodles into the boiling water. Use high heat so that it cooks fast. But be aware that it can boil over very quickly. Once they float, they are cooked.

Add oil to noodles

Add oil to noodles

Scoop it out with a slotted or netted scoop or even a metal sieve. I used a pair of chopsticks and a slotted scoop to pick them out. Do whatever way you can to get the noodles out as soon as possible from the pot. Pour the noodles into a mixing bowl or pot. Add a tablespoon of oil. Mix it well so that they don’t stick. Fan it to cool it down as soon as possible so that the noodles will remain chewy. Some people rinse it with cold water but I never do that. Proceed with the other piece of dough the same way. The noodles are ready to be cooked in whatever way you like, whether in soup or fried. You can even eat it plain if you want!

Thanks for showing us how easy it is to make our own egg noodles at home. This is very inspiring Mary! I have never had fresh hand made noodles before so I may want to give this a try soon. Plus, it’s a great way to work my arm muscles…teehee. My kiddies love noodle soup and I’m sure would love fresh hand made egg noodles.

grace  on August 18th, 2010

what a great tutorial, mary–thanks!

anncoo  on August 18th, 2010

WOW Mary, you’re so clever ;DD Salute to you!

DG  on August 18th, 2010

Thanks for sharing this. You are absolutely very good, you noodle looks QQ & yummy!

Mary  on August 18th, 2010

@lequan@luvtoeat - Give this a try, LeQuan…something freshly made for your family. Your children will enjoy helping while you tone up your muscles :D My family always prefer my homemade noodles…..worth sweating out doing all the kneading…haha :D

@grace - You are most welcome, Grace! Thanks very much :D

@anncoo - Haha……so sweet of you, Ann! :D But I need to increase my IQ for baking like you :P

@DG - At first glance I wonder what is that QQ! I see, it means ‘chewy’…haha :D Thanks very much, DG!

The Little Teochew  on August 18th, 2010

You. Are. Amazing!!! Freshly made noodles is like … a luxury. I must try this at least once. Looks too good to pass.

Cooking Gallery  on August 18th, 2010

I love making egg noodles myself, but look at you, your one is a real labour of love - all handmade!! I always use my pasta machine - I am a cheater ;)!

Priya  on August 18th, 2010

Wowww thanks for sharing Mary, looks prefect yaar..

Belinda @zomppa  on August 18th, 2010

I am so impressed with you right now. Handmade egg noodles?? I love egg noodles but never had the guts to try my own!

Nick @ Gourmet Lovers  on August 18th, 2010

Wow Mary - these look great!

I’ve made similar eggs noodles before for some chicken soup but I love your little tips like fanning to cool them!

I roll very thin but play around with widths - if its a big chunky soup I can cut almost like fettucine width. Other times very thin.

Has inspired me to go and make some :)

Have you ever experiented / found much difference with different flours? Often wondered if you could mix some of the nut based flours (almond etc) with the plain flour to add different flavour to noodles?

Never branched into starch or rice based noodles - would love to know if you make them by hand too.

Excellent article as always.


suituapui  on August 18th, 2010

I wish I knew how to make noodles. When I see those people making the handpulled ones on tv, I can’t help but be amazed and admire how they do it. The ingredients are the same…just that I do not think I can manage to pull the dough into strands like that. Maybe I can give it a try one of these days…your way. LOL!!!

Jess @ Bakericious  on August 18th, 2010

Mary, you are so so amazing, your egg noodles look so delicious, with just little light sauce, sesame oil and chilli sauce I can eat with it plain :)

Mary  on August 18th, 2010

@The Little Teochew - What a sweet compliment!! :D I don’t mind getting big muscles with all the kneading just to make this for you…haha. Give a try. Your children will like it I’m sure. They will even have fun in the kitchen with you if you let them :D

@Cooking Gallery - I cheat, too, sometimes if I want to make a lot. The pasta machine comes very handy then. But if I only do for one or 2 meals, this way is easier I think. I don’t need to take out my pasta machine, set it up and then clean it up and put it back. I think my family appreciates it more if I use hand only….labour of love….haha :D

@Priya - Thanks very much, Priya! :D

@Belinda @zomppa - Awwww….thanks very much, Belinda! :D So sweet of you :D Give a try. It’s really easy. It gets easier after a couple of attempts.

@Nick @ Gourmet Lovers - Thanks very much for visiting and lovely comment, Nick! :D Wonderful to know you make your own noodles too. I have not tried with nut flour. I’m afraid it may make the noodles more rough or crumbly in texture. But I suppose you can add a little but not too much. It may taste like wholewheat spaghetti which my family would refuse to eat! I have yet to try with rice flour and tapioca flour and make it non-gluten. Will post it when I try it out. I think it can be quite tricky using those flours.

@suituapui - Oh….those vieos showing people making hand-pulled noodles are just totally mesmerizing. I saw a real one in action in HongKong recently and it was like total magic to me….haha…..sounds so sakai huh…LOL :D Let’s do the cheating way…still tastes great :P

@Jess @ Bakericious - Awwww….thanks very much for your sweet comment, Jess! I wish I know how to make all the noodles in the world!….haha :D

@tigerfish - Worthwhile to make your own noodles since you like noodles so much like me :D

Thank you for the recipe. I have been meaning to make fresh noodles.

Devaki @weavethousandflavors  on August 18th, 2010

That had got to be one of THE COOLEST POSTS EVER!!!! I love how you do this at home. I for one am a little intimidated maybe becuase I am not sure if I can roll thin enough.

But I am sure going to give it a go!!! THANKS :)

Ciao, Devaki @ weavethousandflavors

Mary  on August 18th, 2010

@Swathi - Thanks very much, Swathi! Once you try, you’ll soon find it’s easy. It will only get easier :D

@Kamalika - You are most welcome, Kamalika! Give a try and have fun making it :D

@Jeannie - Not a sifu yet lah….haha :D You’ve jacked me up too high! Still learning…lots more to learn :D I badly need your IQ in baking…hehe

@Ananda Rajashekar - You are most welcome, Ananda! You can give a try now and have fun making and eating :D

@teresa - Thanks very much, Teresa! :D

@lisa ng - I have not tried freezing the dough but I often freeze the boiled noodles above in small, flat portions for easy handling. Love your way of cooking noodles. Thanks very much for sharing, Lisa! Give a try. I’m sure you will like your own homemade noodles :D

@Joy - Lovely to know that you are going to make noodles too. Have fun making :D I’ll be making it again soon.

@Devaki @weavethousandflavors - Awwww….that’s soooooo encouraging….BIG smiles here!! :D Maybe let it be a little thicker in your first attempt if you can’t get it thin…still delicious though. To roll it very thin, dust more flour so that they don’t stick, then fold it into 2 or 3 layers and roll it out. It will be very thin. And even if they come out in different thickness, it’s still ok…looks cute and special, too :D Give a go and have fun making and eating!

Drick  on August 18th, 2010

you make this sound so easy, even the kneading and rolling out part…

Lauren  on August 18th, 2010

Claudia  on August 18th, 2010

I love that your Malaysian recipe is virtually the same as my Italian one! And that you turn the dough over with chopsticks. Noodles are the most wonderful food - you can anything with them. Many thanks for the visit!

Light Delight with Tou Tou  on August 18th, 2010

I remember my Mom made it by hand several times, and it was so difficult to knead the dough, she just give up and buy it from the super market. But I still remember how chewy the home-made noodles are.

I thought you were rely on pasta machine - but obviously you are a much more patient chef!!

Magic of Spice  on August 18th, 2010

Excellent post Mary…thank you for teaching us :)

Suman Singh  on August 18th, 2010

Homemade and completely handmade noodles sound so wonderful!

Mary  on August 18th, 2010

@Claudia - Noodles must be international, just with different names :D

@Light Delight with Tou Tou - The dough can be quite hard to knead that’s why I prefer to break up the kneading to a few times :D It’s a lot easier that way.

@Magic of Spice - You are most welcome! Give a try. You will be very pleased with your effort :D

@Suman Singh - Thanks very much, Suman! Have fun making :D

@FOODESSA - Thanks very much, Claudia! It’s fun making them HOpe you give a try :D

penny aka jeroxie  on August 19th, 2010

Love making noodles or pasta. Very satisfying :)

TasteHongKong  on August 19th, 2010

I admire you doing everything by hand. Nice cutting as well.

Cook.Bake.Love  on August 19th, 2010


I miss home-made noodles, it reminds me of some good old days in my hometown.

Thanks for sharing ur recipe and step-by-step photos. I would like to give it a try.

Angie's Recipes  on August 19th, 2010

Mary, I love this recipe. You are simply the best at homey cooking!

Catherine  on August 19th, 2010

They look so good, Mary. I’m sure the shop bought ones are not a patch on your fresh homemade version! Your family is very lucky to have you cooking for them :D

Elin  on August 19th, 2010

Mary, you make want to try this out. Well neat and the texture is so perfect from the looks springy . Thanks for sharing the recipe. KIV it for one weekend :)

Elin  on August 19th, 2010

Mary…ooops the brain not functioning…haha correction…” I want to try this out….”

Sorry for the above mind freeze problem :p

Nic  on August 19th, 2010

What perfect noodles, making me very hungry this llunchtime!

jo  on August 19th, 2010

You’ve got to be kidding me Mary! What, you make your own noodle! Kudos to you ….

Conor @ HoldtheBeef  on August 19th, 2010

Mary you make it look so easy that I feel quite foolish for buying noodles. It makes a lot of sense to make your own, knowing exactly what has gone into them. I guess this is especially true when cooking for your children.

Cristina - Teenie Cakes  on August 19th, 2010

Mary: I luv this post and it’s so timely for me. I’ve been telling hubby I want to make my own egg and/or soba noodles. I don’t know that I have a steady hand, though, to cut the noodles uniform. I was thinking to send them through a pasta extruder? Thank you for sharing this recipe and technique. :)

Mary  on August 19th, 2010

@penny aka jeroxie - Great to know that you make them too :D

@TasteHongKong - Thanks very much! Practice makes perfect :D

@Cook.Bake.Love - Thanks very much! Have fun making and eating your own handmade noodles :D

@Angie’s Recipes - Oh wow…….that’s such a HUGE compliment, Angie…..too heavy for me to bear…haha :D BIG smiles here! Should cook a nice meal for you :D

@Catherine - At least I know mine is fresh and clean….hehe :D Give a try. It tastes very good, better than shop ones.

@Elin - Thanks very much, Elin! I hope everyone will make their own noodles….for better health :D

@Elin - Happens to me many times, too….haha. That proves we need to eat more homemade and home cooked food….no added preservatives….to protect pour brains :D

@Nic - Thanks very much for visiting and lovely comment, Nic! Time to make enjoy it the next meal :D

@jo - Haha….yes…..homemade, handmade noodles! You got to try. I’m sure you can make them, too. You’ll be all smiles when you eat them :D

@Conor @ HoldtheBeef - I used to buy too until I knew what they put in. My mom knew best. Give a try. You’ll be surprised you can make it, too :D May be a little messy at the first attempt. It will only get easier.

@Cristina - Teenie Cakes - That’s so lovely to know that you are going to make noodles, too :D It would be easier to use a pasta machine if you are unsure of the cutting. But make sure that the dough is not too soft otherwise it would be difficult to pass through the machine. The dough may even stick inside the grooves. Flour the dough with more flour to help. Using corn flour or tapioca flour is a better option to flour the dough. Have fun making noodles, Cristina! :D

pete  on August 19th, 2010

Interesting. I would love to make my own noodles. Thanks for the recipe!

Cheah  on August 19th, 2010

I salute you Mary! Thought you’ll make the dough and pass it through the ‘noodle maker’. Gosh, cutting the strips by hand, my hand will shake and won’t be able to have such precise strips!!

mycookinghut  on August 19th, 2010

Wow, Mary!!! You are such a talent! I have never tried making my own noodles even I am a big fan of noodles! I really need to try this out too!

Arnold  on August 19th, 2010

I would have thought that this is a far bigger job. You make it sound so easy, I think even I could handle this. By the way, your step by step photos explain the entire process very well.

Juliana  on August 19th, 2010

Mary, your homemade egg noodles looks amazing…I’d love to try it :-) Love the pictures!

Mary  on August 19th, 2010

@pete - Thanks very much, Pete! Have fun making your noodles :D

@Cheah - I think it would be fun to eat noodles of different sizes or a little curly :D Or if you really like it straight you can use a ruler to help as a guide. I know my children would do that :D

@mycookinghut - Awww…thanks very much! I’m blushing here…haha :D Actually very little talent involved. I’m sure you can make it, too. Give a try. Have fun!

@Arnold - I’m sure you can handle that…….you have strong arms for all the kneading! Your noodles will be more chewy than mine for sure :D It’s simple and easy. Give a try. I know you will like the noodles.

@Juliana - Thanks very much, Juliana! Give a try. Have fun making noodles :D

pigpigscorner  on August 19th, 2010

Wow, you made you own egg noodle! Well done!

Faith  on August 19th, 2010

This is so impressive Mary! I bet the taste far better than anything I could buy at the store! Delicious!

Roti n Rice  on August 19th, 2010

Wow Mary, I am so impressed! I don’t know if I’ll have the patience to make my own noodles.

noobcook  on August 19th, 2010

even though you did not use a pasta machine, you cut them to such even lengths… really got skill hehe I ate my mum’s home made noodles before and the quality is unbeatable.

Mary  on August 20th, 2010

@pigpigscorner - Thanks very much, Ann! :D

@Faith - Thanks very much, Faith! Give a try. I’m sure you will find it tastes very delicious :D

@Roti n Rice - Haha…Biren, I think this is easier than making bread. I wish I have more patience like you. You are so good in making bread! :D

@noobcook - Thanks very much! I think it’s because my knife is very sharp….maybe good eyesight, too….with glasses though….haha :D Wonderful to know your mom makes noodles, too.

yummy koh  on August 20th, 2010

Can I order 1 kg of the noodles to couriered to Singapore. I salute you - handmade noodles!!

yummy koh  on August 20th, 2010

Marisa  on August 20th, 2010

Can’t believe it’s so easy! I’ve gotta try this.

Mary  on August 20th, 2010

@yummy koh - I wish I could! That would make it the most expensive noodles ever…haha :D

@yummy koh - Thanks very much, Koh! Give a try. I know you can make it, too :D

@Marisa - It is simple and easy except for the kneading that takes a bit of work, but worth it. Give a try. Have fun making noodles :D

Tanvi  on August 20th, 2010

Wow, what a post!
I always use store- bought noodle.
Wish could make them like yours…perfect!

Amazing post, I never thought that egg noodles could be made from scratch at home. Now, this is what I call perfect homemade egg noodles. I’ll definitely try this.

This is a useful tutorial. I bought a pasta machine, but never use it before. Thanks for sharing. Instead of hand made, I will pass the back end process to my pasta machine. :)

@Little Inbox - Yeah…time to take it out to make your own noodles. That would be fast to pass it through. Have fun making and cooking :D

I have never made homemade noodles but these look DELICIOUS! Your instructions make it look so easy. Can’t wait to try them! Thanks!

Since you don’t need a pasta machine for making noodles, I really have no excuses left! Your noodles look really good and so easy to make. Thanks for sharing your tips :)

Hi Mary, I have to bookmark your egg noodle recipe. I have seen udon recipe but could not find egg noodle recipe. Many thanks. Since in Switzerland, I can’t find good quality egg noodles. this is very pleasing to see it is possible to make yourself. I also wanna learn how to make ramen noodles, you have any source?

Mary  on August 24th, 2010

@Janet @Gourmet Traveller 88 - I can understand that. The fresh egg noodles here are also not nice. The texture is very different….not chewy….too soft for frying. Give a try making your own. The more you knead, the nicer it is. The ramen is the hand-pulled noodles. Have fun :D

@Jane - Haha…I’m no genius….just love some fun in cooking :D

Whewf, that looks soo complicated. I am so glad I checked out your blog today. Thanks for the awesome tutorial too. Can you clarify something for me though?

Take a piece of dough and roll it out very thin with a rolling pin. I use my big heavier rolling pin for this. Make sure to flour it so that it does not stick to the rolling pin or the dough board or table. Fold it over and roll to get it very thin.

Do you mean after you roll it out into a rectangle, you fold it again and roll over it again so that it is one piece or do you mean roll it so that it has two layers? Sorry if the question is confusing. But I look forward to trying out your recipe one day. :)

Mary  on September 13th, 2010

@Esther - Maybe it looks complicated but if you make one time, you’ll find the second time easier. When you roll it out, it will still be 2 layers. That’s why need to flour it well otherwise they will stick and become one layer. But if you have a pasta machine, then it’s easy, you don’t have to fold it into 2. Rolling 2 layers make it thinner. Hope my explanation helps. Have fun making your own noodles! :D

Is this the same egg noodle used in curry laksa?

I’ve never had home made noodles. I’m sure they taste much better.

I’m amazed by your patience!

Mary  on October 2nd, 2010

@The Kitchen Masochist - Yes, this is the same egg noodles used in curry laksa. Give a try. It’s very delicious :D

My aunt makes her own noodles but she used her pasta machine and seem a lot of work. Your recipe looks simpler. Thanks for sharing this!

Mary  on January 28th, 2011

@Jos - I have a noodle machine, too. It’s useful f you are making a lot of noodles. I used it last time. I have found that cutting and pulling is faster if I am not making a lot of noodles. Less cleaning up to do, too :D
