Variation: Substitute any herb for poppy seeds.


  • 4 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 1/2 to 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 2 teaspoons poppy seeds
  • 1 tablespoon oil


  1. In large bowl, beat eggs with salt.
  2. Beat in 1 cup flour. Continue adding small amount of flour. When no longer able to mix in flour, turn dough onto floured surface and knead in additional flour until dough is smooth and no longer sticky, about 10 minutes.

  4. Divide dough into fourths. With rolling pin, roll one portion into a rectangle 1/8 inch thick. Dust with flour and tightly roll up jellyroll fashion. With sharp knife, cut into 1/8-inch slices. Uncurl slices and set aside. Repeat process with remaining dough.
  5. In small saucepan, melt butter and saute onions until soft.
  6. Add poppy seeds. Stir and set aside.
  7. Add oil to large pot of boiling water. Cook noodles until tender.
