Csipetke are small noodles made of flour and egg, eaten especially in a soup or a goulash. The name is derived from the verb csípni, which means to pinch. These csipetke are made by forming the dough into a thin roll and then to pinch little pieces off with thumb and index finger. The amount of csipetke made from 1 egg are enough to serve 4 – 6.
150 gr. (5,29 oz.) flour
a pinch of salt
Mix egg, flour and salt in a bowl and start to knead. Add so much water as needed to make a compact dough. Cover and let it rest for half an hour.
Roll the dough into a thin roll and pinch off little balls with thumb and index finger. Add them the last few minutes to the boiling soup or goulash.
