Udon Noodle Recipe
Udon noodles are incredibly easy to make from scratch. Follow this easy recipe and enjoy the fresh taste.
Flour – 1 ¾ cups flour
Water 4 oz.
Salt – 2 teaspoons
Dissolve the salt in the water. Then pour the water into a bowl with the flour. Mix well with your hands. Work the dough on a counter or table and knead for ten minutes with your hands until it is ready to roll into a ball. Next, transfer the dough into a large plastic zip bag and wrap the bag with a towel. Put the towel on the floor and walk on it (no shoes please). Kneading the dough with your feet is much easier than working the mixture by hand. The method is used to make Udon at home. After the dough is smooth remove it from the bag and roll it out on a table. Once the dough is smooth and flat, roll it into a ball and repeat the kneading and rolling process at least 3 times until the mixture is significantly smoother. When you knead the dough for the last time leave it in the bag and then put it in a warm spot to allow the dough to rest for four hours. Remove the dough from the bag, roll into a ball and knead it again. Place the dough on the work area after it has softened. Roll out the dough once more. Make a long loaf, folding it over three times the same way as you would fold a letter. Cut dough into ribbons 1/8 inch in width. Dust the noodles with flour before removing. Serves 2.
