Home Made Flour Noodle (Pan Mee) 板面制作


We invested on a pasta maker a couple of months back. However, it was just sitting in a corner of my  kitchen cabinet. Then one day I bumped into several interesting posts on home made noodle. Then I felt like my hands were itchy to try on my own too. Hence, I started with a simple recipe to make flour noodle (pan mee).

Overall, I'm happy that I got to learn how to make noodle. The only thing is the kneading's pretty tiring. Next, I'll proudly present to you my home cooked pan mee. :-)

Flour Noodle (Pan Mee)
Serves 4

Ingredients:
2 cups of plain flour
1 egg
about 3/4 cup of water
1/2 tsp salt

Steps:
1. Add flour in a mixing bowl. Make a well in the middle. Add an egg and salt into the well. Using a fork, slowly bring flour surrounded the well to mix with the egg.
2. Add water slowly and mix the dough with hand. Stop adding water when all the ingredients are about to combine together. Knead the dough. Add more water if too dry. Continue to knead for a few minutes. Make the dough into a ball and store in a bowl and cover it up with wet cloth for 30 minutes.
3. After 30 minutes, you’ll notice the dough turns softer compared to earlier. Knead it for a couple of minutes.
4. Divide the dough into 4 portions. Dust the kitchen top with flour. Flatten one portion into sheet using roller pin. Roll the sheet over the pasta machine. Continue for the balance 3 portions.
5. Cook the noodle in your favorite way.

Saw someone making pan mee with added mashed up pumpkins. I reckon pumpkin flavoured pan mee should be nice although I have never tried it before.

That must be a good investment! Wow!

Dr.Sameena, thanks for dropping by.

tigerfish, the cost is between MYR50 to MYR100, but it ables to work for me for various type of noodle. So, the investment is definitely worthy.

My daughter gave me a pasta making machine like yours some years back. I have yet to use it. I simply do it manually with a rolling pin and cut.
