How to make it

  • Remove strings from snap peas and boil. Split them in half.

  • Make soup stock. Pour Dashi stock into a pot and heat, add Mirin and light soy sauce. Bring to a boil over high heat (1300W 190-200℃).

  • Mix starch and water then dissolve well.

  • When the soup comes to a boil, add starch slurry (3) little by little and mix well to prevent lumps. When the soup begins to thicken, lower the heat to medium (800W 170-180℃) and add the beaten eggs through a slotted ladle.

  • Put the boiled Udon noodles in a bowl and pour the soup. Serve with snap peas and grated ginger on the top.
