A sprinkling of the Japanese chile flakes known as ichimi togarashi is the ideal finishing touch for these saucy noodles.Jenny Huang

Instant curry blocks are a mainstay in Japanese home kitchens. Our from-scratch version of the convenience food is almost as easy to make but so much more flavorful. It also allows the cook to control the spice level and the type of starch and fat used in the dish. Thinning the curry with a light dashi or mushroom stock ups the umami and gives the stew the perfect saucy consistency for coating bouncy udon noodles.
