Prepare the usual oden ingredients. Vegetables include daikon radish, carrot, Chinese cabbage rolls, etc.
Boil the daikon radish in rice water for 20 minutes. Boil eggs in the same pot for 10 minutes to make boiled eggs.
Put the ingredients for the soup in an earthenware pot, put the oden ingredients and simmer until the vegetables are tender. Turn off the heat and leave for 30 minutes so that the flavors will absorb into the ingredients.
After you have eaten all the oden ingredients, add cooked udon noodles and some more soup to the pot. Bring it to a boil and add chopped green onion to serve.

Simmered dishes taste better if you turn off the heat when they are cooked through (remove the lid) and leave for a while so that the ingredients absorb all the flavors.
