Serves: 12

Serve as a side dish to goulash

Ingredients (Nokedli)

  • 1.5kg flour
  • 3 eggs
  • Salt
  • Approximately 500ml water


  • Boil a large pot of salted water
  • Mix the flour, eggs and and add water gradually until the dough is stretchy and holding well together (it will be quite runny by comparison to normal pasta dough – see picture above). Push the dough through a large cheese grater (or use a spaetzle maker as pictured) so the dough drops fall directly into the boiling water.
  • When the drops float back to the surface cook for one minute more, then remove from the water.
