Ingredients for the Spaetzle

  • 2 cups all-purpose-flour
  • 1 cup water + more for boiling the spaetzle
  • 1 teaspoon kala namak (key ingredient!)
  • 1/4 teaspoon turmeric powder

Ingredients for the Avocado Sauce

  • 1 ripe avocado
  • 1/4 teaspoon water
  • 1 teaspoon lime juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon kala namak
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped spring onion
  • + more kala namak for sprinkling (optional)


  • Fill a large pot with water until it's 3/4 full and bring it to a boil.
  • Put the flour in a mixing bowl, add in the Kala Namak and turmeric, whisk and add in the water and whisk again until it's a sticky dough (like in the photo above).
  • Once the water is boiling you can place the Spaetzle Maker on top of the pot.
  • Fill the Spaetzle Maker with the dough and move it up and down until all the dough is pressed into the water. (Depending on the size of your Spaetzle Maker you may have to make the Spaetzle in two batches)
  • The Spaetzle will swim on the surface once they are done (which should be in a minute or two).
  • Use a skimmer to transfer the Spaetzle in a strainer, pour some cold water over them to prevent them from sticking together and drain.
  • Cut the avocado in halves, remove the pit and spoon out the avocado flesh into a food processor and mix it with the rest of the ingredients for the avocado sauce until completely smooth.
  • Reheat the spaetzle in a large, lightly oiled hot pan on medium heat. Add in the avocado sauce, give a good mix and divide the Spaetzle onto two plates and top it with the finely chopped spring onion and sprinkle additional Kala Namak on top if you want to!


I highly recommend using a Spaetzle Maker for this recipe or any other Spaetzle Making Device you prefer or have at home.
A leafy green salad is the excellent side dish for these Spaetzle.
