I am assuning this was a typo. It actually should be a rivel which is a small coarse noodle. For a variation you can look for a recipe for spaetzel which in German means little sparrows. The recipe can be varied immensely from adding dark beer instead of milk herbs of your choice and liking. Spaetze is almost a pancake consistency that you pit through a colander with pencil diameter holes and force into salted boiling water til they float
