- 7 ounces dried thick white noodles (udon)
- 2 quarts water
Pour the water into a pan. Bring to a boil and add the dried thick white noodles (udon). Follow the cooking instructions on the bag (about 12 minutes).
Add a cup of cold water to the pan if the water starts to boil over.
After boiling, drain the noodles in a colander and quickly run cold water over them.
Because too much starch and salt on the noodles can make them taste slimy, wash them under cold running water to remove any extra starch.
Drain again. After cooking, 7 ounces dried thick noodles becomes about 17 ounces cooked noodles.
