Japanese thick wheat noodles

Japanese thick wheat noodles or udon are made from combining wheat flour with salted water. These thick noodles are available fresh, frozen or dried.

Japanese thick wheat noodles are similar to cu mian or thick Chinese wheat noodles. White in color, sold dried, the noodles are usually flat and are available in round or square, individual portion-size bundles, resembling bird’s nest.
