  2. Transfer to a bowl, add green onions and mix.

(Skin)

  1. Knead the dough with your palms until smooth and shiny.
  2. Shape it into a rectangle and cut into 5 equal portions.  Place the cut cross surface facing up.   Roll out each piece of dough into 5 mm thick rectangles.
  3. Roll out each piece of dough with a Pasta Machine, starting with the widest setting.  One by one, roll through thinner settings until the thinnest setting is reached. (You may manually roll out the dough to 1.5 mm thickness.  In such a case, cut the dough into 30 portions and roll out each piece into individual round skins.)

INSPIRED BY:ワンタン、BOOK14, BIBLIOGRAPHY

The original recipe called for  冬菜(小松菜)の漬け物 (salt pickled Komatuna); however, any green leaves that are pickled with salt for 30 min will do.

The original recipe used only 80 cc of water, which was too little: so I added 15 cc more water.

The original recipe included Nori and Cilantro for toppings.

The soup is too light:chicken stock should have been added.

I don’t like this recipe very much.

I bought a pasta machine and tried this recipe, resulting in returning the machine.  There is no need to buy a pasta machine for any fresh pasta/noodle.  It takes less time to roll with a rolling pin and the resulting noodle is softer.  Pasta machine made noodles gets tougher than rolling pin noodles; but softer than ready made dried pasta.

The pasta machine, if you definitely need it, must be made in Italy.  No matter what, as it gets old, the rollers start to become not parallel.  The rollers may shift towards the edges and scrape against the side; causing the chrome or nickel coating to scratch off and contaminate the pasta.  It will be a disposable tool, sooner or later.  Do not buy a used machine, even though the seller says “used only once.”

There is no need to buy an electric pasta machine.  A manual pasta machine does not need two people as some claim.  Even a 6 year old girl can use a manual pasta machine by herself.

For me, a rolling pin and knife does a much better and faster job than using a pasta machine with cutters.

I changed the Dan Dan Mian recipe tried on Aug 26, 2010 to use chicken instead of pork, and substitued the homemade noodles with the dried noodles sold at Asian Grocery Store, everywhere. 

The noodles can be any Chinese Style Noodles, either homemade or readymade, either fresh or dried.

I added Mizuna fresh from our garden to boost the nutritional value of thie recipe.  Mizuna can be eaten fresh or cooked.  If cooked, very little heating is needed.

Hot sauce is very hot: you need only a tiny little bit.

Serve with hot water to dilute the sauce, and cold water in a glass to cool the fire in the mouth.
