Hungarian Dumplings - Nokedli
3 cups Flour
1/2 cup Water (cold)
2 tbs.Oil or butter
1. Beat the eggs lightly with the salt and pepper. Add cold water and oil and
2. Add flour in small amounts until a fork can just about stand upright in the
dough. Add additional water as necessary. Let the dough rest for about 30
3. Fill a large pot with salted water and bring to a boil. Place the dough in a
Spatzle machine and drop into the boiling water. After the noodles rise to the
top wait about 2 to 3 minutes and then skim them off the surface with a slotted
spoon and place in a colander to drain. Add a teaspoon of butter or oil if you
wish. Serve immediately as they cool quickly.
If you will not be serving the noodles immediately, skim them off the surface as
soon as they rise and rinse in cold water. When ready to serve, place them in
boiling water again for a minute or two, drain and serve.
If you don't happen to have a Spätzle machine, don't worry. Take a 10" aluminum
pie plate and punch about 10 to 15 holes about the diameter of a pencil. Put a
few spoonfuls of batter in the plate and run a fork back and forth, forcing the
dough through the holes and into the water.
