Hungarian Noodles (Nokedli)

Homemade Hungarian noodles called ‘nokedli’ are both simple to make and impressive! We love pairing them with chicken paprikash, but you could enjoy in soups, stews or with your favourite pasta sauce!

  • 3 cups flour
  • 1 ½ teaspoons salt
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 ½ cups water


  1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. In a medium bowl whisk together all of the ingredients.

  2. Once the water is boiling, place the noodle maker on top of the pot with the square sliding section facing upwards.  Add a small amount (about ¼-1/3 cup) of the dough to the centre sliding section of the noodle maker and slide it back and forth, allowing a small amount of the dough to push through (and get cut off as it slides back and forth), creating noodles.

  3. Continue with the remainder of the dough, working quickly.  Boil for 3-4 minutes, until the noodles float.  Drain and serve immediately (you may want to toss them in a bit of oil to prevent them from sticking together).
