Make Fresh Ramen Noodles at Home with These Three Ingredients

Fresh noodles aren't hard to make and are so much more delicious than the instant variety. You can save money by making them at home, too. All you need are these three ingredients and a little time.

First, you'll need bicarbonate of soda, water and all-purpose flour. Bake the soda by spreading it on a foil-lined sheet pan and baking at 120°C for about an hour. This transforms it into the ingredient that gives noodles their colour and springiness: alkaline salt.

Dissolve four tablespoons of the baked soda in a half cup of warm water, then add a half cup of cold water. Mix in the flour and knead it until you have a soft, springy noodle dough. You'll need to refrigerate the dough for an hour so it can proof and once it's is done, roll it out.

Lucky Peach recommends using a pasta machine, but if you don't have one, you can do it by hand. Cut the noodles and then cook them for a tasty meal worth all your hard work. For the full recipe and step-by-step, hit the link below.

    Or, you know, skip the hassle, get out the trusty old flour and eggs (one egg per 100gr of flour) and make pasta the way it's been made for yonks. Why waste around with oven baking bicarb soda and what have you?
