Can some one please tell me how to make Ramen? I had some actual ramen in little Tokyo in LA (not the kind you buy at walmart for 29 cents) and would love to be able to make this delicious food. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I love Japanese food! They are so easy to make. Just recently I made gomashio so that my rice balls won't be as boring as before. I also like other furikake, but gomashio is the best for me. What I did was to place 80 grams black sesame seeds in a non-stick pan, and wait for them to puff up and become toasted. Then I dissolved 10 grams of salt in 1/2 cup of water, pored it in the pan and stirred until everything was dry and not clumpy anymore.

Then I shredded some leftover nori sheets, tossed them with the gomashio, and sprinkled on top of rice! yum!

Japanese rice is a short grained and gets sticky when it is cooked. You need to know some tips to cook Japanese rice properly.The Global Pantry: Japan

With interest in international cuisine exploding, many home cooks are branching out and experimenting with the new, exotic ingredients they're finding in the supermarket.

So I just made okonomiyaki for the first time ever, and it was reaaally good!
These are the ingredients that I used (for 2 people):

110g white flour
~120g "homemade dashi" (couldn't find any "real" dashi powder )
1/2 of a teaspoon of baking powder
1/4 of a teaspoon of salt
2 eggs
about 220-250g of cabbage
a few thin slices of pork loin
6 medium sized shiitake mushrooms
a little bit of beni shoga
1 large finely chopped red chilli

However, as you might've noticed I didn't use agedama or yamaimo. I'm sure I could make some agedama next time I make okonomiyaki, but I'm pretty sure they don't sell yamaimo around here, so I was wondering if there's something else I could use instead of yamaimo?

Did you look for freeze-dried yamaimo? If that isn't available, the best substitute I can think of would be grated regular potato. I wouldn't use too much of it, though. Agedama would be more important than yamaimo or its substitute.

Was wondering what kind of sauce you used.

Thanks for your reply!

Hmm, I didn't, but I'll look for it next time I go shopping, and if I can't find it, well, I guess I'll just try a little bit of grated potato, like you said. I'll include agedama next time as well. Hopefully it'll taste even better! =D

I couldn't find any "real" okonomiyaki sauce either, so I kinda made my own okonomiyaki sauce from different recipes I found online. I don't think it tastes anything like the real deal, but I still liked it! It was something like this:

4 tablespoons of ketchup
1 tablespoon of worcestershire sauce
2 tablespoons of sake (Gekkeikan)
1-2 teaspoons of soy sauce
brown sugar (can't remember how much I used)
a little bit of honey
about 1 teaspoon of mirin
some ginger...powder...thing

I think that's it...

oh, and I also put some "vårlök" (I think they're called scallions in english) on top of the okonomiyaki. I heard that you're supposed to use konegi, but I don't know if it's the same or not.. they kinda look the same, at least!
