How to make it

  • Mix flour and seasonings.
  • Beat egg and add a little water
  • Mix flour with egg until you get an elastic moist dough
  • Add further water as necessary
  • Have a pot of boiling, salted water ready
  • Put the dough on a wet wooden board
  • Get your favourite kitchen knife and stick the blade briefly in the boiling salted water
  • Turn down the temperature a little so that the water does not boil too vigorously
  • Cut a line of the end of the dough just under finger thick
  • Pull away from the rest of the dough and cut pieces from the line, about ¾'' to 1'' long and scrape off the board into the water (resist the temptation to make them bigger)
  • Keep on cutting and dip your knife into the water occasionally to prevent sticking
  • When all the nokedli is in the water allow to simmer until it all rises to the top
  • Drain the cooking water and serve
  • (*** Special tip*** keep the cooking water for your next Hungarian onion soup)
