Pasta & Egg Noodles


Cuba buat pasta menggunakan campuran tepung suji/semolina flour pulak. Mmmm..susah sikit nak handle doh ni, agak lembut...itupun dah letak extra tepung, maybe kena tambah lagi sikit tepung. Prefer resepi pasta yg Maisya guna sebelum ni, tak byk kerenah.

PASTA
http://theitaliancookery.com/pasta.htm

Ingredients: (serves 4)
* 1 1/2 cups white flour (maisya tambah lagi 1/2 cawan tepung)
* 3/4 cup semolina
* 4 eggs
* 1 pinch of salt
* 2 tbsp olive oil

Optional Ingredients: Add these to make different colored pasta, but remember to add a little extra flour to maintain the consistency of the dough
* Tomato paste
* Spinach paste
* Whole peppercorns, crushed

Recipe:
1. Make a well at the center of the flour (semolina and white) and crack the eggs inside of that.

2. Add the oil to the eggs and mix with your hands slowly, so as not to spill anything. Start with your fingertips and make small circular motions that simultaneously mix the eggs and incorporate flour, so your mixture gradually thickens.

3. Continue mixing and adding flour until the dough is no longer sticky, but is not completely dry. You should be able to touch it without it sticking to you. You should be able to pick it up off the table without it sticking. If it's too sticky, add more flour. If it's too dry, add a tablespoon or two of water.

4. Break the dough up into handfuls and pass through a pasta machine or use a rolling pin to flatten the dough as much as possible. The dough should be about 2mm thick.

5. Roll the sheet of pasta onto a rolling pin or clean broom handle, cut into strips. If your dough is thick, cut into very thin strips. If your dough is thin, you can cut it into wider strips. You can hang your pasta on a bar or a clotheshanger.

6. To cook, boil water in a pot and add about 1 tsp salt. Put the pasta in the water and cook for about 2-4 minutes, until the pasta floats. Fresh pasta requires less cooking time than dried pasta. If you added semolina rather than white flour, the pasta will take longer to cook than if you add white flour. Freeze any uncooked pasta.




Untuk sos dia maisya guna resepi ni. Kalau yg sukakan Indian food mungkin akan suka dengan sos ni...byk guna spices. Sedap!
