3 eggs

1 teaspoonful of salt

Cooking oil

Method

Start by mixing the salt and flour thoroughly to ensure the salt is evenly spread.

Add the eggs and cooking oil (preferably olive oil) into the flour and whisk thoroughly.

Since the flour won’t be absorbed into the eggs only through whisking, use your hands to knead.

Knead the dough like you would do with the chapati one until all the flour is absorbed. If there are still remains of wheat, sprinkle a few drops of water.

Once you have gotten a soft dough, let it rest for a least 30 minutes and cover it with a plastic bag.

After that, cut the dough into large wedges.

Sprinkle wheat flour on your rolling surface to prevent the dough from sticking.

Now start rolling your cut wedges while trying to give them a rectangular shape.

Ensure you roll it into a very thin sheet since they will increase in size when cooking.

If you have a pasta machine, you could use it to cut small strips of pasta. But if not, worry not. There’s always an alternative.

Spread out your rolled dough on the surface and use a knife to cut thin strips.

Sprinkle the noodles with flour to prevent sticking.

If you are not cooking them immediately, hang them to dry. However, you do not have them to let them dry if you are cooking immediately.

Isn’t that simple? Give it a try.
