LAY HO MA everyone! It’s such a pleasure to make noodles by hand plus eat them knowing that you made it from scratch! The elasticity in handmade noodles is what I love about making it yourself. Nothing wrong with store bought varieties – let’s face it life gets busy! But if you make these noodle nests ahead of time, you can have handmade noodles any day of the week! Join me in this episode and learn how to make easy handmade ramen noodles from scratch and learn how to dry handmade noodles as well!

Ingredients:
185g bread flour
1/3 cup water
1/2 tbsp baking soda
pinch of salt

Directions:
1. In a small sauce pan, bring the water and baking soda to a boil
2. Add the flour and salt to the mixing bowl in your stand mixer (if using one)
3. Right when the water starts to bubble, slowly pour the water into the flour while mixing on the lowest setting
4. Mix for 10-15 seconds until the water is gone. The mixture should look flaky and fairly dry
5. Knead the dough in the bowl for about 30 seconds
6. Take the dough out of the bowl and knead on a clean surface for 1-2min. Try your best to flatten the dough as much as possible. This will give your pasta roller an easier time.
7. Attach the pasta roller to the stand mixer (or use a hand crank one) with the setting on the widest (#1)
8. Turn the roller on and feed the dough through. Fold the dough in half back onto itself, press together the dough, and feed through 1-2 more times
9. Increase the thinness setting to #2 and feed the dough through again. Increase to the next thinness and repeat until you get to setting #4
10. Lay out the sheet of dough and cut in half. Each sheet is one portion of noodles
11. Switch out the roller to the spaghetti cutter. Have a bamboo skewer or chop stick ready to catch to the noodles.
12. Feed the dough through the cutter and catch the noodles with the skewer
13. Dust the noodles with some bread flour, and comb the noodles gently with your fingers
14. Gently twist the noodles into a nest, and place them onto a lightly floured baking tray

STORAGE AND COOK TIME
1. To dry the noodles, let the nests sit out in room temperature for 3 days. Flip the nests, and let it sit for another 3 days. Then, store in an airtight container or bag. This method the noodles will need 7min in boiling water to cook
2. If you use the noodles right away, they will cook in 3min
3. If you place the noodles in the fridge, they will cook in 4min

Hi Will, quick question about your cookbook, if the handmade noodle recipe in the book identical to this one, or is it more advanced? Thanks!

jctseng says:

Hi Wil, thanks for making this video and providing all these great videos. I have seen recipes and videos that use alkaline (sodium bicarbonate) and yours which do not. Do you have any preference between using them or not?

Alas. When I read “handmade” I thought I could try it but this is depending on the kitchen aid appliance for most of the process

Jocelyn Latreille says:

Made them right after seing your video. Result was perfect, except for the forming of the nest……looks more like a disorganized ball of noodles than a nest……I guess I need practice 😉

Tobias Tho says:

Great! How do I make them without a pasta machine and WAVY? Tipps?
