I recommend you use bread flour because it's widely available, you don't need to drive to an Asian market. I have used it many times the texture of the noodles I would say it is 9 out of 10. However this is just my personal preferences you can try different brands and see if you like them now let's go back to the process of making noodles it should look like this before running the machine use the dough hook attachment we will run it on low speed for 15-18 minutes total every egg is different and different types and brands of flour have different abilities to absorb water I gave you an exact amount of water but that is for reference, you need to adjust it slightly based on your situation.

This is how I balance the water flower ratio during the first five minutes of kneading. Stand to the side of the machine so that you can keep an eye on it when you see that all the flour has formed. r on a rough piece like that, you can stop the machine for a second, make sure your hand is clean and dry, take a piece of dough, squeeze it real hard, then release, if the dough sticks to a hand like that, you need add more flour in my case I used about 50 grams more flour to adjust keep kneading until you don't see any dry flour we are looking for a low water ratio which means the dough should be quite hard and non-stick to your hand let's check again you need to clean and dry your hand to squeeze it hard then release, the dough should immediately come loose from your hand and not stick at all. speed for 10 minutes plus ten minutes later or so you need these big pieces of dough together cover let rest for 30 minutes now let's take a look at the KitchenAid Pasta Maker this helps you roll the dough into sheets it has an adjustable knob that will decide the thickness of your sh hear the other two will help you cut the noodles the dough has been resting for 30 minutes take it out the amount i gave you is enough to make six portions of noodles so we will divide it into six equal parts you can scale it if you want i just go with my eyes flatten each piece with your hands so it can go through the machine easily place the attachment start with the widest thickness let the dough go through the machine one by one CE you are done with the first row this is what you will get be careful when stacking the dough sheets because they can stick together if you let them sit for a while.

I don't want to apply cornstarch at this point because I like it. to fold the edges into a sort of rectangle push it down hard so no air gets trapped in there these straight lines will make sure your noodles come out the same length still use the first thickness let the dough run through the machine again this The sheet will come out smoother and cleaner I'll fold it in half again otherwise I'll end up with extra long noodles I don't like that same thickness let the sheets run through the machine again basically you want to fold them over and over until they come out nice and smooth and that it should be almost rectangular in shape once you are happy with the shape and not going to fold them any more you can apply the cornstarch to the surface to keep them from sticking together apply evenly on both sides the starch is gluten free so please which will keep the noodles separate from each other even if you let them sit for days in the fridge if you use flour to keep them from sticking you could end up with a d it is sticky after a few days of storing them in the fridge because the gluten in the flour can recombine the noodles now you are ready to change the knob setting and start rolling out the thinner sheets I like to go one step at a time if it skips thickness could end up with tears or jagged edges my personal prefer to use level 4 or 5 as my final thickness depends on the recipe i choose once you have achieved your desired thickness change the noodle cutter attachment the KitchenAid attachment comes with a spaghetti and fettuccine cutter I have six servings of noodles today so I'm going to make three servings for each of the spaghetti which we actually call "seem" in Chinese which means Fang noodles the fettuccine we call it means white noodles add a little cornstarch in The Mixing Bowl, mix the noodles together and they will be lightly coated with the cornstarch switch to the other end mix again shake off the excess starch from the needles s are ready you can cook them right away or store them these noodles are freezer friendly I like to make a big batch and store them in a suit container they will last four to five months in the freezer they will also keep well in the fridge for up to a week each anytime you want to cook them again you can put them directly into boiling water without thawing they will taste just as good as fresh if you need to thaw them in any case be sure to keep the container sealed until it reaches room temperature if the lid is open while thawing the noodles will absorb moisture from the air and you'll end up with a sticky mess here are so many sample recipes you can cook with these noodles seriously i feel like words aren't enough to describe how much i love noodles in the future i will be sharing even more noodle recipes be sure to subscribe to my channel so don't miss any episode here is a li noodle playback sta you can use these noodles go check it out I hope you enjoyed this video thanks for watching and I'll see you next time bye
