Tori Paitan 鶏白湯 means Creamy Chicken Soup in Japanese. For this recipe of the classic Tori Paitan Ramen 鶏白湯ラーメン, I used purely chicken and vegetables to make the soup base.
This ramen is complemented with a shio tare (ramen sauce) and fragrant onion oil to allow you to enjoy full flavours of the soup broth which is savoury yet not too thick. The noodles are handmade using Hokkaido flour and wholegrain wheat flour for a chewy texture. I also made pork cheek chashu which is tender yet crunchy when eating.
As always, I did not use any MSG because I try to use various alternative ingredients to bring out the umami in my own recipes.
