Springy Chinese Noodles - How do they do it?

Grunde | Jan 21, 2013 02:57 AM

Hi. Saw another TV program about Chinese noodles the other day. I've always wanted to learn to make hand made noodles.

Does anybody know the recipe for making the dough so springy and so strong?
I know they use regular flour, not durum, and no eggs, but that's pretty much it. I guess the flour has to be quite glutinous.

Swinging a piece of dough in front of you and ending up with a pot full of fresh noodles, well that would just be the coolest party trick to impress guests. That and flicking pizza doughs overhead.
