Udon Noodles ( Japanese Noodles)

This is my 2nd attempt in making Udon Japanese noodles. On my 1st attempt, I realized that a lot of kneading is required in making the noodles. This time I decided to use my bread machine to do the all the hard work for me. The noodles turned out just as good. It is very springy and not sticky; a success.

4 teaspoons salt
8 ounces (1 cup) warm water
2 1/2 cups  bread flour
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour

1. Add the salt to the warm water and stir until it has dissolved. Put the bread flour and all-purpose flour in a large bowl, and whisk the flours together.

2. Pour the salty water into the bowl with the flour. Using your hands, mix the flour and water together lightly until the mixture is crumbly. Pull the dough up from the bottom of the bowl and press down, and repeat until the flour and water are well combined and a rough ball is formed.

3. Take the dough out of the bowl and knead it for 5-10 minutes until the dough has smoothed out and a lumpy ball is formed.

4. Transfer the dough to the bread machine to continue kneading on dough setting. Then put the dough inside a plastic bag and leave aside for 4 hours

5. After 4 hours, take it out of the plastic bag and knead it again the second time on the bread machine. The dough may crumble and break to pieces.

6. Combine the dough together using your hands . Then roll it out on a pasta machine to cut it into thin noodles as in making Chinese noodles.
