Androxa’s Homemade Pasta…
For two to four people depending on what you serve with it and how big eaters you have.
2 eggs and 220 grams of flour , 1 teaspoon salt, 2 teaspoons turmeric , 2 teaspoons garlic powder, 1 soupspoon olive oil
Mixing the dough
Mix the flour with all the dry ingredients.
Mix the eggs with the oil.
Pour the flour on the table or in mixing bowl and make a hole in the middle of the flour. Put all eggs in here and start to mix the flour from the middle till you have a crumbly dough , keep kneading till the dough is nice and smooth about 5-10 minutes .If the dough is too sticky add a little flour. the recipe is a guideline as the quality and hardness of the flower and room temperature and size of eggs can be different every time. make pasta a few times and you will have fresh pasta on your plate in 30 -45 minutes. 🙂 ok when the dough is nice and smooth and not sticky put it in a sandwich bag or cling film and leave for 30 minutes or till next day.
To use a pasta machine there are many recipes/sites on the internet so have a google around. you can do it by hand but is time consuming and it gets on my nerves, I got a pasta machine here and make fresh pasta maybe 2-3 times a week .
In this one I used turmeric ..thats more for the color then taste , I almost always use garlic powder in the pasta .it just gives such a beautiful taste and scent. I also make many variations , with roasted and ground sesame seeds, sweet paprika , poppy seeds, curry powder , fresh finely chopped herbs and another one for dessert….cocoa and powdered sugar….
Cooking the fresh pasta only takes about 2-3 minutes depending on the thickness of the pasta and quality of the flour.
Well hope you try it out sometime 🙂
