EASY! Hiyashi Chuka (Cold Ramen Noodles) - Video Recipe

Hiyashi Chuka (cold ramen) is kind of refreshing ramen salad. You can enjoy it by changing the toppings and Tare (dressing/sauce).

This video will show you how to make the very basic Hiyashi Chuka with common toppings and Shoyu-Dare (soy sauce based dressing).

Perfect dish during the hot and humid summer season. However it can be served all year long ;)

Hiyashi Chuka (Cold Ramen Noodles)

Difficulty: Easy
Time: 30min
Number of servings: 2

2 packages fresh Ramen noodles
4 slices ham
1/2 cucumber
1/2 tomato
1 egg
a pinch of salt
cooking oil
Shoyu-Dare (soy sauce dressing)
* 50ml water
* 50ml vinegar (rice or cereal)
* 3 tbsp. soy sauce
* 1.5 tbsp. sugar
* 1 tsp. sesame oil
* a pinch of salt
1 tbsp. ground toasted white sesame seeds

1. Mix the ingredients for Shoyu-Dare and cool in the fridge.
2. Cut ham and cucumber into thin strips. Cut tomato into wedges.
3. Season an egg with a pinch of salt, then mix well. Heat cooking oil in a frying pan and make 1 or 2 thin omelets (depending on the size of your frying pan). Leave to cool on a plate, then cut into thin strips.
4. In a large pot, boil water. Add fresh Ramen noodles in the boiling water and gently stir noodles with chopsticks. Cook Ramen noodles according to your package (mine was 3 min). Drain the noodles in a strainer and rinse the noodles under cold water for a few times to remove starch. Then drain well again and pat dry with paper towels.
5. Place the cold noodles in a dish and sprinkle with ground toasted white sesame seeds. Arrange the toppings. Pour over the sauce right before you eat.

Serve with Karashi (Japanese mustard) if you like.
