The shape of cat ear noodles is cute, and children like it very much. Adding buckwheat flour to it is very healthy and good for the body.
How do I shape the noodles into "cat ears"?
To shape the noodles into "cat ears," you can use a few different methods:
- Using a cat ear-shaped noodle cutter to cut the dough into the desired shape.
- Rolling the dough out into thin strips, and then using scissors to cut the dough into the shape of cat ears.
- Using a knife, you can also shape the noodle dough into thin strips and then use your fingers to shape them into cat ears.
Regardless of the method you choose, it’s important to make sure that the noodles are all the same thickness and shape to ensure even cooking. A bit of practice might be necessary to get the shape right but with time, you’ll master it.
How long should I boil the noodles for?
The boiling time for cat ear noodles may vary depending on the thickness of the noodles, but typically they should be boiled for 2-3 minutes, or until they are fully cooked and al dente. You can check the doneness of the noodles by biting one and make sure that it is cooked through but still has a bit of bite.
