How to make handmade udon noodles—it’s easier than you might think!
I am in love with this udon noodle bowl I got from the company Flavour Design Studio. Isn’t it gorgeous? I love the way it’s designed to be easy to hold, with a hole for your thumb to fit through, and I love the grooves and holes cut out for your chopsticks to sit in so they don’t roll away from you! I decided that I needed to make some homemade udon noodles to properly break in the bowl. It would have been a shame to eat store bought noodles out of such a gorgeous handmade vessel! Udon noodles are one of the many varieties of noodles found in Japan. My favorite bowl of udon was nabeyaki udon—udon noodles in a flavorful broth made from dashi and chicken stock, and filled with lots of vegetables, poached chicken, tempura shrimp, and a poached egg. For my handmade noodles, I decided to make Kake Udon—udon served in a broth, made from dashi, soy sauce, and mirin, and topped with sliced scallions. Take it from me, homemade udon makes for a very happy family! and folding it. Makes 4 servings
