Akagi dried hiyamugi noodles are a fine Japanese wheat noodle, which sit between udon noodles and somen noodles in size. Serve the hiyamugi noodles in a similar way to somen or udon noodles.
Local hiyamugi noodles. Kneaded expertly to preserve the nutritious quality of Gunma's locally-produced wheat flour, these hiyamugi noodles are made to savour a light dip into Japanese most satisfying flavours. Made 100% from regional ingredients and the fresh spring water that flows through the area, these hiyamugi form delicate strands that finely swell into a firm and enjoyably delicate noodle base. Bundled into 3 neat portions for easy boiling and chilling, these nutritious noodles are refreshingly filling to dip into a thick tsuyu or dashi sauce.
To cook the dried hiyamugi noodles
- Bring a pan of water to boil (for 90g noodles use 1l of water)
- Add noodles to the pan and stir occasionally
- Simmer for 4-6 minutes or until soft
- Drain and wash immediately in cold water. Serve warm in soup or cold with udon dipping sauce (tsuyu), a blend of dashi stock, soy sauce and sweet mirin rice wine.
