How to make Tsukemen Japanese Dipping Noodle (つけ麺の作り方)

This is a 2-part series featuring Chuka Soba 中華そば and Tsukemen, sharing the same soup base, tare and noodle recipe.

Hello! In this video I will show you how to make Tsukemen つけ麺, it is the most popular style of dipping ramen in Japan where dry noodles are dipped into a bowl of hot and thick broth.

Tsukemen is a consist separate servings of noodles and broth, the noodles are dipped in the broth before eating. The noodles are typically served cold or at room temperature, while the soup is served hot, which serves to season and moisten the noodles. Toppings used in the dish are typically on the side. Soup base is added to dilute the thick soup when noodles are finished, for drinking to complete the meal.

In my recipe, I used Gyokai Tonkotsu for the soup base and added cameralized onions to make the soup thicker and more flavourful. The handmade medium thick noodles is soft but springy as I added egg into the recipe.
