Homemade Pasta


I am Stella from Srilanka 
                               Step By Step Recipe

Homemade Pasta                                         
  • 150 grams Plain Flour
  • 2 whole Eggs

Preparation Instructions

Sift the flour. Pour flour in a bowl. Now make a well in the center and break in the eggs.
Using a folk, whisk the eggs until combined and then start adding in some the flour.
Use your hands and knead the dough about 5 minutes, adding a little flour if necessary. Dough must be smooth and pliable.
Now cover the dough with a tea towel and allow to relax about 30 minutes.
Take the dough out of the bowl and roll it into a large rectangle 12×12 inch and 1/8 inch thick in size, using a rolling pin and more flour for dusting.
Using a very sharp knife, cut dough into 1/8 inch thick strips.
To cook pasta, take a large pot. Pour 500 ml water and add 2 teaspoons salt. When the water is boiling, add cut pasta. It cooks in about 10 minutes. Remove cooked pasta using tongs and put them in a colander. Drain well. Do not rinse.
