  1. In a medium bowl, mix water, onion flakes and cilantro flakes. Let set 10 minutes.

  5. Stir. Make a well in the middle, a deep hole.
  6. Add the beaten eggs and flakes mixture.
  7. Fold the flour in all four directions over the well.
  8. Add water 1 tbsp at a time if dough is too dry. Really depends on how large the eggs are.
