  • [Music]

  • [Eggplant]

  • [Okra]

  • [Shrimp] Hey guys, so this time I'm going to make udon.

  • [Dried sardines] Homemade udon noodles are so much better than pre-made noodles

  • [Kombu] and the ingredients are actually very, very simple.

  • [Bonito Flakes] It's just salt, water, and flour.

  • [Tempura Flour] So if you get a chance, please give it a try.

  • First, I'm going to make the noodles.

  • Sift the flour in a bowl.

  • Dissolve salt in water and mix it into the flour.

  • Knead the flour and make it into dough.

  • Put the dough in a bag and step on it.

  • The more you do this, the better the texture will be.

  • Once the dough becomes somewhat flat, fold it and repeat this process a few more times.

  • Some udon stores do this step for more than an hour to get a better texture.

  • Oh, hi Haku. What's up?

  • Then, rest the dough for about an hour.

  • While resting the dough, let's prepare other ingredients for tempura.

  • Shred the carrot.

  • Cut off the tip of eggplants and make it into a fan shape.

  • Rub off the hair of okra with salt

  • and make some holes so they don't explode while deep-frying.

  • Cut off the tip of the tail and squeeze the liquid out of it.

  • Then, cut the muscle strings

  • and press them so the shrimp doesn't curl while deep-frying.

  • Now, let's flatten the dough like this.

  • Make sure to coat it with flour.

  • Then, fold it and cut it into noodles.

  • Or, you can just use pasta machine if you have one.

  • Let's make the soup.

  • Add dried sardines, kombu, and water in a pot.

  • Right before it starts boiling, take them out.

  • Add thick bonito flakes and boil it for a few minutes.

  • Turn off the burner and add thin bonito flakes

  • and wait for about 5 minutes until they all sink.

  • Filter the soup with a paper towel.

  • Add a teaspoon of soy sauce and pinch of salt.

  • You can also just buy soup powder and mix with boiling water as well.

  • Now, add water to the tempura flour and make batter.

  • Coat the ingredients with flour first and then batter.

  • Oil temperature should be 180°C.

  • Boil the noodle for about 10 minutes.

  • Place everything in a bowl to finish.

  • Itadakimasu.

  • Ah, that was good.

  • [calling Haku]

  • I got some, um, chicken.

  • I can cook that for you.
