Recipe Notes

The resting time depends on the temperature, and it was 24°C (75°F) when we made the udon. As a rough guide, rest the dough in a plastic bag for 2 hours in spring and fall, 30 to 60 minutes in summer, and over 3 or 4 hours in winter when you are in Japan.
Use a generous amount of water to cook the udon, otherwise the water gets starchy, and the salt in the noodles doesn’t dissolve into the boiling water.
Corn starch or potato starch helps keep the noodles from sticking. You can substitute flour instead but you should cook them as soon as possible.

Hello and thank you for the many recipes you have shared. I was wondering if you can freeze the extra noodles before cooking them so you will have some for later?

I made these for dinner tonight and they were perfect! A lot of work to roll them out; the whole time I was wondering if a pasta machine would work just as well, haha. Very chewy, loved the texture. Much better than frozen udon!
