- 2 eggs
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 3/4 cup water
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 large pot filled with salted boiling water
Add flour, a little at a time. Add only enough flour to make a soft, sticky dough.
Let mixture rest for about 10 mins. Beat mixture again.
Using the side of a teaspoon, spoon small amount of dough into boiling water. Dipping the spoon in the hot water will remove the dough from the spoon (if you have a spaetzle maker, that makes is easier as you want very small noodles).
The noodles are done when they float to the top.
Remove from water with large slotted spoon, and place in colander. Rinse with cold water.
Make the dumplings in 2 or 3 batches so they don't overcook.
Serve with chicken paprikas, or add to a stew.
Also: You can heat the dumplings in a frying pan with melted butter. Do not let the dumplings get too brown or crisp.
