How to cook

  • 1. Combine the kaeshi and dashi stock for the soy sauce. The ratio is 1 part kareshi to 4 parts broth (to taste). [Kareshi] Dissolve mirin and sugar together over heat without boiling, then turn off the heat and add soy sauce. Add kombu (kelp) to water and bring to a boil over medium heat. After 2 to 3 minutes, remove from heat and strain through a colander.

  • 3. When the dough is the consistency of an earlobe, press the dough together with your weight and force, then place in a plastic bag and let rise at room temperature for about 2 hours.

  • 4. Roll out the dough evenly on a rolling board to a thickness of 3 to 4 mm using a rolling pin. Use enough flour at this point.

  • 5. After the dough has flattened out, fold the dough into a ball and cut it into 3 to 4 mm wide strips with a knife.

  • 6. Place the noodles in boiling water and boil for 8 to 12 minutes. When the noodles become clear, remove from the water and rinse immediately.
