Sujebi Noodles

Sujebi is one of my favorite comfort foods. If you love noodles and never had this before, you are seriously missing out! These are hand torn noodles that are deliciously chewy and served in a flavorful soup made with anchovy broth.

I would make this with my mom all the time, especially on rainy or gloomy days. It’s a fun team effort hand pulling the noodles together and it’s definitely one of my favorite memories at home.

You can use any vegetables you like but potatoes are essential! It really wouldn’t be sujebi without potatoes in my opinion. I like to add a little spiciness to my sujebi but it’s totally optional!

  • 2 cups + 2 tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 onion medium
  • 1 scallion chopped, for garnish
  • 2 potatoes medium
  • 1/2 zucchini
  • 1/2 onion sliced
  • 1 tbsp garlic minced
  • 1 tbsp soup soy sauce or salt to taste

Anchovy Broth

  • 12 dried anchovies innards removed
  • 3/4 cup water

  • 8 cups water

Spicy Paste (optional)

  • 1.5 tbsp gochugaru
  • 1.5 tbsp fish sauce
  • 1.5 tbsp anchovy broth


  • Toast the anchovies then add water, dried kelp, onion, and boil for 20 minutes.
  • In a bowl, combine flour, water, and salt and knead until it forms into a ball. Wrap and let it rest in the fridge.

  • Strain the broth. Add the potatoes and onions. When the potatoes are almost done, toss in the zucchini and minced garlic.

  • Boil until the noodles are fully cooked, about 2-3 minutes. Garnish with scallions.

To Make It Spicy (optional)

    Can I use whole wheat flour for making the dough as using all purpose flour is not healthy???
    Can I also use rice flour for the dough??
    Or can you suggest any brand of which flour should I purchase as I am from India and we here only use whole wheat flour for making chapati you .

      Hi Asha! You can definitely use whole wheat flour in place of all-purpose flour 🙂
