Starch in noodles?

joonjoon | Oct 4, 2016 01:39 PM

Hello Hounds,

I have decided it's about time I learned how to make some noodles. I thought I'd start with a Korean classic, Kal Guksu (knife cut noodles). While perusing some recipes/methods, I came across this:

In her recipe, she recommends adding some potato starch to the flour when making the noodles, and says it makes it chewier. I have a bunch of corn starch at home that never seems to get any use, so it got me wondering, can I sub potato for corn? Anyone have any experience adding starch to noodles?

Want to stay up to date with this post?
