Default Japanese Cold Noodles (Hiyashi-chu) Great for hot summer nights

http://www.onthechoppingboard.com/p/...les-remen.html



Hiyashi-chuka is basically a dish of cold noodles with selected ingredients mixed together with a sauce. There are no rules in what types of ingredients you want to accompany this dish. As you can see below, the one I had tonight included ham, egg, cucumber, tomato, corn, and avocado with cold Ramen.



The method is basically boil your preferred noodles (Ramen, Udon, Soba, Somen, etc) and rinse it under cold water and leave to cool.

Once the toppings are placed into the bowl, you can pour/scoop as much or as little sauce into the bowl and mix the noodles together.



The sauce is the most important part of this dish, and the recipe for 2 types of popular sauces are here.

Sesame based sauce:
Soy Sauce - 4 table spoons
Sugar - 5 tablespoons
Vinegar - 4 tablespoons
Chicken Stock - 8 tablespoons
Sesame Oil - 2 tablespoons
Sesame Sauce - 3 tablespoons
Sesame seeds

Method:
Boil water and add chicken powder to create chicken stock (or you can buy premade stock)
Add the hot stock and sesame sauce into a bowl and mix well.
Add the rest of the ingredients and leave it to cool.

Serve on top of cold noodles.



Soy Based Sauce:
Mirin - 100ml
Vinegar - 100ml
Soy Sauce - 8 tablespoons
Sugar - 1 tablespoon
Sesame Oil - 1 tablespoon
Grated Ginger - 1/2 table spoon
Lemon Juice - 1/2 tablespoon

Method:
Add all ingredients into a small pot and bring to the boil.
Leave it to cool
Just before serving, add the sesame oil, ginger and lemon juice

Serve on top of cold noodles




If you prefer to not have any toppings and just prefer a nice cold dipping sauce for Soba, Somen, or Udon follow the sauce recipe below.

Cold Dipping Sauce
Water - 400ml
Konbu (Seaweed) - 5x5cm pieces
Mirin - 70ml
Soy Sauce - 70ml
1 packet of Dried Bonito Flakes (20g)

Method:
Put the water, Konbu and soy sauce into a pot and bring to the boil with LOW heat
As soon as it boils, add Dried Bonito Flakes.
Keep boiling for an additional 5 minutes.
Leave to cool.

For additional flavour, chop up some spring onion and grate some ginger into the sauce before dipping noodles.

An old japanese exchange student taught us a variation of this one. It's SOO good, even for the people that don't usually like japanese food.

Should write up my variation for the forums

If it requires rubber bands and pins, mail them too.
