Homemade Egg Noodle and simple fried noodle

Noodle.. in Bahasa Indonesia I call it Mie [read: mee] . Is a long, thin rolled dough and cooked in boiling water. Arabic, Chinese and Italian claimed that they are noodles' inventor, although the oldest written about mie come from the Eastern Han Dynasty, between AD 25 and AD 220. In October 2005, the oldest noodles estimated 4,000 years old was found in Qinghai, China. (source:Wikipedia)

Anyway, regardless of the first inventors of noodles ... let's us make our own egg noodles at home ... this might be the first favorite in your home. And for more how to use (cook) this homemade noodle, I also include one simple fried noodle recipe below. 


Before making favorite noodle recipe you have.. let's make our egg noodle. I have my pasta rolling machine to help me doing rolling and cut the noodles. But don't worry if you don't have one, you can just simply roll the dough with rolling pin and cut the dough with sharp knife. You can see my other homemade egg noodle post without pasta rolling machine here.

Ingredients for Egg noodles: (make about 1000 gr wet noodles)
- 400 gr all purpose flour
- 4 large eggs, beaten
- 1 tsp salt
- cooking oil
- tapioca starch (potato / corn starch) for sprinkle

How to:
In big bowl mix flour and salt, add in beaten egg and  mix until all  well blended. Knead for few minute and form as big ball. Put in plastic wrap and let it rest in refrigerator about 2 hours minimum and 1 day max.

Divide dough into 4 equal part, roll in pasta rolling machine start with thick roller first ( my rolling machine has no.1 as thickest up to no.9 as very thin ), so I went with no.2 few times, then no.3 few times, no.4 few times and then the last is no.6 few times before went through noodle cutter. Sprinkle the noodles with tapioca starch to prevent sticky each other (corn starch will do as well).

Mean while boil enough water in big pan, give some Tbsp of cooking oil. Boil your noodles one minute just until they start to floating. Strain them and quick wash them in running water to clean remaining starch.

Splash them with enough cooking oil before you want to keep them. Just simply put in box or sealed plastic bag. This homemade egg noodle can stay in refrig up to 8 or 9 days (in my experiences).

Now for simple fried noodle:

For 4 portion.
Ingredients:
- 1 bowl wet noodle (about 300 gr), splash with 3 Tbsp soy sauce then mix until ll noodle cover by soy sauce
- around 200 gr beef or chicken meat, cut into small chunk
- Kecap manis (Indonesian sweet soy sauce 1 Tbsp)
- vegetables (bean sprout, shredded cabbages, about 1 cup each)
- 5 shallots, thinly slice
- 3 cloves garlic, bruised and minced
- celery and leek, copped
- 2 tsp sesame oil
- 1 tsp black pepper powder
- salt and sugar to taste
- 2 Tbsp cooking oil.

1) Heat cooking oil in a deep wok over high heat. Add chicken/ beef meat, stir fry until it change color, add in garlic and shallots, stir until aromatic. Mix in vegetables, noodle, leek and celery. 
2) Add in sesame oil, black pepper, salt and sugar (optional), kecap manis. Stir fry continuously. Test the taste. Continue to cook for few minutes until vegetables wilted and cooked.

Serve while it's hot with pickle and kerupuk (Indonesian cracker)
