Hiyashi Chūka is a Japanese dish, meaning chilled noodle in Chinese style. It is chilled noodle with various toppings, cut into matchsticks, particularly served in summer. It has become unacceptably hot recently and chilled noodles are quick and delicious must-have in my dinner table. It’s easy to prepare, just needs some chopping and mixing. Here’s a quick direction.
1. Poach any noodle you prefer, I like thin noodles, such as ramen, or even angel hair. Cool down in iced water, drain, and plate;
2. Choose vegetable and meat you like, such as egg, ham, char-sui, shredded chicken breast, cucumber, onion, spring onion, carrot, tomato, and I like to add a little jelly fish. Cut into matchsticks, place them on top of the noodle;
3. Make the dressing. For two portion, mix 3tbsp of light soy sauce, 1tbsp of Chinese vinegar, 1tbsp of syrup, 2tbsp of Japanese sesame dressing, 3tbsp of sesame oil and a pinch of toasted sesame seeds.
