Comments
When I was taught to make Udon in Japan my instructor made balls of dough and steamed them for 15 min. Then he put them through the Udon machine "Japanese Pasta Roller". The texture was incredible...must have been his family secret. This above recipe comes from "Japanese Cooking A Simple Art" by Shizuo Tsuji.
