A not too long time ago we visited our family, and I used this opportunity to buy some tools that are a little bit rare over here. One of these is a Spaetzle maker, and of course, after we arrived home I wanted to try immediately. Hungarian Spätzle called 'Nokedli' or 'Galuska' is a very simple side dish, which is light as a cloud. We normally eat it with stew or saucy dishes. This portion is enough for about 4 people.
- 400 g flour
- 250 ml water
- 2 eggs
- 1 tbsp oil
- 1 tsp salt
- First of all put a big pot of salty water on the stove, because you will need slowly boiling water to cook the noodles.
- In the meantime mix the flour, water, eggs, oil and salt in a bowl.
- When the water starts to boil, set up the Spaetzle maker tool and place some dough into the little square-shaped holder.
- Start to move this part and as a result, the small dough pieces will fall into the water.
- After the noodles appear on top of the water cook them for another 2-3 minutes.
- Finally filter then rinse them in cold water, place them into a serving bowl, and stir 2 tbsp oil in it, to avoid the pieces sticking together.
The traditional Hungarian way is to serve nokedli with stew.
