Tender udon noodle served in savory dashi soup, topped with chicken, carrots, shrimp tempura, kamaboko, and mushrooms. I’m so happy to hear you enjoyed this recipe with your family. Deep fry at 340-350 ºF (170-180 ºC) until golden brown.

Aww thank you so much for your kind words. The origins of this noodle was inspired from a type of noodle in China called “cu mian”, where the recipe was brought over to Japan … Hi Kimmi! Hi Tang! I would love see an extra page on your site that helps us to understand the cooking implements you use and the serving dish ware. Hi Nami, Another keeper for me. Udon should not be overcooked.

Slice up the mushrooms and add them to the pan Wish I can send you a pot of Nabeyaki Udon! Hi Jeanine! Something to think about. Thank you! But my knowledge was limited, so I always ended up cooking ‘fusion’ kind or the same thing over and over again. your site is perfect.

I read online that the weight is increased 3 times after being cooked. Some scholars date the first appearance of udon in Japan … Heat up the oil in a pan, add the garlic, onion and ginger and stir for 10-15 seconds. Besides udon noodles, the soup usually includes chicken, kamaboko (fish cake), mushrooms, and vegetables such as spinach, long green onion (Negi), and carrot. The most time-consuming part for me was making shrimp tempura from scratch. Each frozen udon package is 250 gram.

Hi Nami , i found all the ingredients at a japanese store in SF but i dot have the hot pots with lids to cook it in , if i cook it in a normal pan I guess i transfer it carefully scooping in a bowl? Hi Jeanie!

Again, thank you! .

I really feel like congratulating myself Thank you, Nami! Hi Nikolai! Unless you put a lot of meat, it should be okay. Please do not use my images without my permission. Slice the carrot. Thanks to you I am Learning…. It’s perfect for the snowy and wet weather that we’ve been having in the Northeast… =) I also love how personalized the size of your nabe pot is. , Hi Cassandre! I was thinking something like an amount the size of a dime in cross-section per person, but this seems much more quantifiable, lol. I added that I used Awase Dashi. Hi Jayne!

When boiling again, turn off the heat and set aside. You can make your variations with toppings you enjoy if you make it at home. Nami, I’ve been sick all week and finally felt up to giving this a try.

I live in the U.S. but many of things can be purchased here, so I feel like nothing is so “special”… but if you have never seen a clay pot like this or serving ladle (which are pretty common in Japanese restaurants here), it can be an interesting topic! I hope you enjoy this recipe! Interesting!

First I would like to say I really love your recipes, I grew up on japanese food because I live in a highly asian area, and I love it, but your recipes are even better than some of the homemade Japanese food I’ve eaten at my friends’ houses!!

It’s encouraging me to shop for a smaller one for easier cooking and portioning when I eat by myself. Design by, (15 cm; use white part, or leeks + green onions/scallions), (6.3 oz/180 g dry udon noodles; 1.1 lb/500 g frozen/boiled udon noodles), (see below for instructions; you can buy frozen shrimp tempura and follow instructions to reheat as well), (reserved from rehydrating dried shiitake, see instructions), kosher/sea salt (I use Diamond Crystal; Use half for table salt). This is a delicious dish that can be made in less than 20 minutes! Add to the water and allow to soak for half an hour.

Udon soup is pure comfort in a bowl. It’s okay to make it fusion (and I do that with my own cooking with other cuisines), but if you can find authentic ingredients, do give them a try! Instead of Donabe that I used for this recipe, you can simply use a regular pot/saucepan with a lid.

Look forward to trying it! Thanks so much for sharing the Japanese cuisine, ettiquet and culture. It’s so delicious. Bring it to a boil over medium-high heat. Just cooked it! You need just enough water to cover the mushrooms and place a smaller bowl on top to keep the mushrooms submerged in water. I’m happy to hear you tried some recipes already.

It’s just a little fancier than cooking ladle. Add the katsuobushi, bring back to the boil and immediately turn off the heat. I’m so happy to hear you like Japanese food. Oh… sorry… Some udon noodles are flat some are thin… hard to tell… just like pasta, use the similar measurement. . We’ll add it to the list of our fav recipes. To make the tempura batter, combine the tempura batter mix and water. Allow to stand until all the flakes have sunk to the bottom of the saucepan.

. I updated a little bit and hope it helps.

Sometimes we share a big pot, and each person serve the food into your bowl/plate, sometimes individual small pot like today’s post. Put the saucepan over a high heat and remove the konbu just before the water comes to the boil. The udon soup was very tasty ; wonderful flavor.

My mother is traditional old school Japanese and I’m so Americanized even though I was born in Japan that I really don’t know how to cook Japanese food. I noticed a lot of my friends order this too. Add an egg, spinach, and mitsuba and cover to cook until the egg is done to your liking. Hello! To make udon soup, you need to boil udon noodles, prepare the broth by bringing dashi to a boil and then adding in the soy sauce, mirin, and sugar, and then assemble by dividing the noodles into … but no matter, I’m so happy with the results, I feel better already! . Yay! Yes, I used the dried shiitake mushrooms for the topping too (it’s used at 12 o’clock, but it’s hard to see from the way I photographed….sorry!). Your questions and observation made me realize things that are “normal” for me maybe not be so for some people. This nabeyaki udon recipe (especially with step-by-step pictures) might seem long, and to be honest, it took quite a while for us to shoot the video. Shichimi Togarashi (Japanese seven spice), dashi (Japanese soup stock; click to learn more), carrot into a flower shape with a vegetable cutter, Green Bean Shiraae (Mashed Tofu Salad) いんげんの白和え,, Its been many years since that time and while I have been able to find and consume this at local Japanese restaurants, Am and so very happy to be able finally to make this and eat it at home!!!!
