Biangbiang noodles (𰻝𰻝面 / 面), alternatively known as youpo chemian (油泼扯面) in Chinese, are a type of noodle popular in the cuisine of China's Shaanxi Province. The noodles, touted as one of the "eight strange wonders of Shaanxi" (陕西八大怪), are described as being like a belt, owing to their thickness and length. The noodle is broad and hand-made. I will learn how to make hand pulled noodles at home.
Biangbiang mian/noodles (handpulled noodles) step by step
- To make the noodle dough in a large bowl, mix salt with flour. Then add water and stir bit by bit. Using either an electric mixer with a dough hook attachment to mix or if by hand using chopsticks. Tip: add the required water amount first to see whether the dough forms and is kneadable. If not add a tiny drop more water at a time until the dough forms a ball..
- Continue kneading the dough until smooth. Cover the noodle dough with cling film and let it rest for 20 minutes..
- Then after 20 minutes knead the dough again, until the surface is really smooth. This will make the dough easier to work with later and make it very pliable when stretching the dough to make the noodles. Cover the dough again with cling film and let it rest for another 20 minutes..
- In a small bowl pour the vegetable oil. In a medium size baking tray lightly coat and brush with vegetable oil. Remove the noodle dough from the mixing bowl and place on a chopping board. Weigh the dough and cut into two equal halves. Using the first half of the dough cut the dough into 6 portions, cover the other half with cling film (to prevent it drying out). There will be 12 noodle logs in total..
- Shape each one portion into a long log and brush all over with oil. Repeat the process for the second half of the dough. Once all the noodle dough have been shaped and oiled, cover with cling film. Let the noodle log rest for at least 1 hour or until ready to use. Tip: If making the noodles in advance put the noodle log into the fridge and take out an hour before use to let the noodles come to room temperature..
- In a large saucepan pour in the boiled water. On medium heat, bring water to a boil. In the meantime take one noodle log out and place it on a clean flat surface or on a large silicone mat..
- Flatten it and using a rolling pin roll out side ways to make the dough wider (make it as wider as per preference) and then roll out into a wide rectangle. Using chopsticks press it into the middle of the dough to indent it. Tip: this makes it easier to separate the noodles later..
- Then gripping and holding the two ends of the noodle strip slam the noodle dough against the silicone board flat surface This creates the smacking sound. While smacking the noodle dough slightly stretch it during the smashing process. This will make the noodles long. Tip: stretch out the noodles slowly to prevent breakage..
- Once noodles are at desired length, separate noodles along from the chopstick trace. Tip: separate the noodles all the way to have two noodle pieces or partially separate but don't rip one end to have one long noodle. Repeat the process until you have the desired amount for that portion. I usually cook 6 strands at a time. Then separate noodles per portion in the bowls. Tip: If making it for a large family double the portion size. Have two pots of water on the go so you can cook more at once..
- Go back to the pot of boiling water and add the stems of the pak choi. Once they are half way cooked, add in the noodles. Once water boils again add cold water. And then add the leaves of the pak choi to blanch. Once noodles are cooked transfer the noodles and vegetables into a bowl..
- In the meantime, on medium to high heat in a pan or pot add 2 vegetable oil and heat it up until slightly smoky (this makes 1 serving). Turn off the heat..
- Then place as little or as much of the garlic, green onion and chilli powder on top on top of the noodles and pour the hot oil over the noodles (mainly over garlic, spring onions and chilli powder). Lastly, add soy sauce and black vinegar and mix well. Repeat process 6 to 12 for the remaining servings..
- Eat and serve immediately while the noodles are pipping hot. Tip: this batch should make enough for anyone that fancies a second round of biang biang noodles..
