This is a regular evening snack for my husband when he comes home after going out for drinks with his co-workers. It's done in a flash! You'd be tempted to gobble up two servings.

Ingredients: 2 servings

10 cm if tubed (or as preferred)
Fresh ramen noodles
2 servings

Nori (dried seaweed sheet)

1. Add all ☆ ingredients into a pot over heat. Turn the heat off when nearly boiling. That's it for the dipping sauce!!

Story Behind this Recipe

My friend taught me how to make these cold ramen noodles!
I've adapted it a bit by adding ginger.
This is our one and only recipe for cold ramen noodles, even after two decades.

I usually stock up on store-bought fresh ramen noodles and freeze them to use for later.
