Preparation

Kitchen utensils

1 Pasta machine

Preparation steps

1.

Knead lentil flour, eggs, oil, 4 tablespoons of cold water and salt to a dough. If the dough is too sticky or too dry, add some lentil flour or water. Cover the dough and let it rest for about 30 minutes.

2.

Divide the pasta dough into 4-6 portions. Dust with lentil flour and turn through a noodle machine to level 1. Fold the dough and roll it through to level 2. Repeat the process on the different stages of the pasta machine until the dough sheets are about 1/8th inch thin.

3.

Cut the dough sheets into 1 x 1" squares and roll them over a spoon handle to form tubes. Let the pasta tubes dry for about 1 hour.

4.

Bring plenty of salted water to the boil in a pot. Cook the red lentil noodles in it for about 3-5 minutes until al dente and then drain.
