Ms Aitch and Mr El are Swabians. They economize, are hard workers, do the „Kehrwoche“ and like to eat spaetzle with gravy. As an authentic Swabian you have to grate spaetzle.
1/2 tsp salt
Add flour, salt, water and eggs into a bowl and mix it with a wooden spoon. Beat the dough for ten minutes. Put a pot of salt water on to boil. Grate spaetzle dough over boiling water and cook until spaetzle float to the top.
Alternative: If you want nutspaetzle, replace 200g flour with 200g ground hazelnuts. For chestnutspaetzle replace 200g flour with 200g ground chestnuts.
Spaetzle don’t only serve as a side dish to meat dishes like beef olives or the swabian classic lentils with spaetzle, you can use them as a main dish like Kässpaetzle or spaetzle with cabbage.
