Does passing spaetzle dough through a cheese grater really work?

Lady_Tenar | Sep 23, 201203:44 PM     24

I've seen many recipes suggest this but it seems dubious to me. Has anyone actually tried it and, if so, does anyone have any tips and/or a recipe for a dough that works particularly well for this technique? I'm not particularly loyal to any particular recipe, I just want spaetzle for my chicken paprikas tomorrow and I don't have a spaetzle grater. (and, no, I can't get one where I am. I abroad, in a country where people look at you blankly if you say "spaetzle.")
