1. Make the shokupan into crumbs with your food processor.
2. Heat 1 tsp vegetable oil over medium heat, fry the bread crumbs (panko) until crispy or brown lightly. Transfer onto a plate and set aside.
3. In the same frying-pan, (without heat yet) add the katsuo flakes, soy sauce, sugar and kobucha (kelp powder). Now turn the heat on, cook over medium heat. Then soon add the bread crumbs, stirring continuously so that there is no lump.
4. Add roasted sesame and cook over medium-low heat for a few minutes. Transfer to a plate and let it cool down. Once cooled, it will be crispy.
5. Transfer to a bowl and add nori. Enjoy over steamed white rice or blend it in when you make Onigiri :)
1. Mix dry ingredients (plain flour, tapioca flour, potato starch) in a bowl and mix well. Transfer to "Philips Pasta Maker" equipped with the udon extrusion disc. Close lid.
2. Turn the machine on and set it for the quantity you are going to be making. Press Start.
3. Slowly pour water through the opening in the lid.
4. Udon dough will begin to form and udon noodle will come out within a few minutes (3 min). Cut the first udon noodles at about 10cm length and put them back in the machine's mixing tank. That's because the first udon is not smooth enough.
5. The noodles will be extruded. Now cut the udon every 30 to 35cm following your preference.
6. Toss the udon noodles with a little bit of flour or potato starch to prevent sticking.
7. Repeat until the machine stops or the dough is finished.
Serve with hot soup or cold or prepare for stir-fry!
