Fat Chewy Noodles

Fat Chewy Noodles


  • 400 g all-purpose flour 
  • 2 g salt
  • 200 ml water , room temperature


  1. Mix up all the ingredients into a bowl
  2. Knead the dough until a rough, firm ball is formed, about 2 minutes.
  3. Let the dough rest for 30mins-1hour
  4. Roll the dough out until desired thickness (a little thicker is better as we stretch it out further in step 5) and use a knife to cut slices of dough
  5. Lightly stretch the dough before dropping in into a boiling pot of water (here, starting wider thicker piece of dough allows us to stretch it a little more before boiling it)
  6. Boil for about 3-5mins, drain and serve with desired toppings/sauce
  7. Normally, I coat the noodles lightly in sesame oil while preparing the rest of the ingredients

  1. 1 tablespoon of Hai Di Lao mala soup base with chili oil
