Easy Home-Made Spaetzle Recipe

Living in India, I sometimes have enough of bhaji and chapati. The fact that I'm not a fan of rice means, at times I need some continental or western food. Today I made Spaetzle and it was delicious! Here's the recipe I used. 

This part is vegetarian, but uses egg. I did have a non-veg side (on the top there) that I used to mix in. Watch for that recipe soon!


Recipe for 2 adult servings or 1 adult and 2 kids.

For the "noodles"

1 cup white flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/2 c milk
1 egg
Dash of black pepper

For topping 

1/4 c butter
Cheese to taste
Black pepper to taste

Boil a large pot of water

Mix dry ingredients, sifting the flour if necessary...
Add milk and egg slowly and fold in gently. Mix well by hand.

Over boiling water use a colander and hand press the mixture through and into boiling water.

When the spaetzle floats up use a slotted spoon to take it out.
Place into a frying pan of melted butter.
Add additional spaetzle as you go, avoiding placing your sweat in with it 
Keep flame on low.
Add cheese and plate!
