Experiment Today is Parsley Noodles. Combined with red sauce that made from coarsely ground dried red chili plus other ingredients.
In the first experiment I did not expect much to be perfect, but it turned out good too. Parsley can be replaced with other herbs according to your taste and the type of sauce can also be adjusted as well with the addition of a variety of meat, chicken or seafood.
I myself enjoyed it with ‘spicy pulled chicken‘ (not in the photo).
Experiment don’t need to make it too much so if it fails won’t be too disappointed to throw away. In this case I didn’t throw any.
Parsley Noodles :
- 1 cup plain flour + for extra
- 1/2 cup finely chopped fresh parsley
- 1 egg
- 1/4 to 1/3 cup of water
- a pinch of salt
- 1 tbsp oil
Select good quality parsley, wash and drain.
Chop finely and squeeze the juice, use only the parsley. Set aside.
Mix flour, salt, egg, oil in a bowl. Stir and add water little at a time to make the right dough (the water may less or more). Knead about 2 minutes, add chopped parsley and continue kneading until the dough smooth and elastic. Shape into a ball and rest for 10 minutes.
Use a rolling-pin and extra flour, roll the dough into thin dough sheet. Using pasta machine if you have. The thickness will affect the texture of the noodles.
Don’t forget to drizzle with extra flour to prevent stick each other, cut as desired, can be small or wide noodles.
I like a thick noodles so that I can really taste the elasticity of noodles.
Let dry for a while. Cook in a large pot with hot boiling water, little at time to keep the water boiling. My noodle was thick, I cooked about 3 minutes, they will appear on the surface. The color slightly green from the parsley.
Put in a colander and rinse with cold water, drain.
