Making Hong Kong-style Alkaline Egg Noodles

Recipe source :  Madame Huang's Kitchen

I have earmarked this recipe for more than a year. Finally, today, I got to try out this fabulous recipe. The blog described in details the step-by-step process of making the noodles.

I am very happy that my attempt has been successful. However, I believe it can be further improved. The colour and texture of these home-made egg noodles are different from the store-bought yellow noodles. It is definitely worth the extra effort to make my own egg noodles. I am already thinking about the possibilities of great noodle dishes I can create using these egg noodles. 

The basic recipe yielded about 500g of raw egg noodles which is  sufficient to serve four to five people.


1/2 tsp alkaline water
2 tbsp filtered water
2 1/4 cup flour
3 large eggs
Extra flour for rolling out the dough


1.  Pour alkaline water into filtered water before mixing it into the flour and eggs.
2.  Form a soft dough, cover it with a cloth and let it rest for about 30 minutes to relax the gluten.
3.  Cut the dough into four portions and roll out the dough, dust with flour to prevent the dough from sticking together.

Some pictures to show the step-by-step process :

Put all ingredients into the bowl of a mixer
Mix until a soft dough is form. Cover with a cloth and let it rest for 30 minutes
Cut into four portions. Cover the other three portions with a cloth while you work with the first portion.
I used a noodle maker to roll the dough until smooth

Then I passed the dough through the cutting rollers to make thin noodles

This batch has been par-boiled

This is the first time I am making noodles at home and also the first time I am using a noodle maker which is brand new. I had bought it at a 70% discount more than a year ago!  I guess given more practice, I can improve on the processes. 

N.B. Freshly made noodles are best eaten on the same day.

To par-boil the noodles :

1.  Bring a large pot of water to a full boil.
2.  Add noodles to the boiling water and stir gently until the water boils again.
3.  Cook the noodles until barely tender then drain in colander set in the sink.
4.  Rinse the noodles with cool running water.
5.  Drain and set aside for later use.

As this post on the making of egg noodles has already taken much space here, I shall post the cooking of this egg noodles in a separate post.

  1. Hi Doris, this looks amazing! I've never had the chance to try out homemade noodles because i don't own a pasta roller... yet! Will be bookmarking your recipe for future reference! :0

  2. Hi Doris,
    Your post is making me feel very guilty! Haha! I should! My noodle maker has been hibernating for more than a year, and have been meaning to use it for noodles for ages! Got to dig it out, it's somewhere in my pantry!
    Your noodles are perfectly made!

    1. I am sure you'll be able to make a bunch of nice looking and great tasting noodles.

  3. Hi Doris, your noodles definitely look on par with store bought noodles! Great job.

  4. if don't have filtered water, what can we replaced with?

    1. Filtered water is any water that has gone through a filter. Basically it is clean water because in some countries the water supply is yellowish and that can affect the quality of the finished product.

    Hi Doris, homemade noodles is always the best!

  6. i am so envious that u are making your own noodles. does this taste like the noodles in wan ton mee?

    1. Hi Lena, You can do it too!. To me, the taste of this egg noodle is a cross between the wan ton mee and the Hokkien thick noodle.

  7. Hi Doris,

    I'm very impressed with your homemade noodles. I have made my own pasta before and my family love them very much. Having this experience, I can appreciate all homemade noodles.


  8. Doris, can I make this noodles without the addition of alkaline water? I know alkaline water gives the noodles more texture.

    1. Yes you can. While surfing for noodles recipe I came across another recipe which does not use alkaline water.

  9. Hi Doris,
    Can this be keep for overnight?

    1. Yes, I have tried it before but it must be kept covered in a container in the refrigerator. Do not put in the freezer.

  12. I was diagnosed as HEPATITIS B carrier in 2013 with fibrosis of the
    liver already present. I started on antiviral medications which
    reduced the viral load initially. After a couple of years the virus
    became resistant. I started on HEPATITIS B Herbal treatment from
    ULTIMATE LIFE CLINIC ( in March, 2020. Their
    treatment totally reversed the virus. I did another blood test after
    the 6 months long treatment and tested negative to the virus. Amazing
    treatment! This treatment is a breakthrough for all HBV carriers.
