Chilled Sesame Udon Salad

There  are many kinds of noodles in Japan, udon are white and the thickest noodles, these noodles are made by kneading wheat flour , salt and water...Dried udon, boiled udon and fresh udon noodles are available at stores, to cook udon noodles we just need 2 minutes with hot boiling water..Udon can be eaten hot or cold and can be prepared in many ways as stir fry, soups also as cold salads...cold udon salads are really refreshing and popular in summer...This udon noodles salad with sesame seasoning is among the cold salads with udons, usually this udon noodles are garnished with grated ginger, nori(seaweed) etc but i prefer with sesame seeds and sesame dressing, which needs only 5 minutes and a very easy salad, prefect when served chilled...This is my second entry to AWED-Japanese guest hosted by Lavi of Home Cook's Recipes, event started by DK..


1packet Fresh Udon Noodles (500gms)
3tbsp Sesame oil
1/2tsp Lemon juice
1/2tsp Ginger (grated)
3tbsp Soya sauce
2tbsp Coriander leaves (chopped)
2tbsp Sesame Seeds (dry roasted)
Salt( as per need)
Pepper powder

Cook the fresh udon noodles in boiling water for 2 minutes, drain the excess of water..meanwhile make the sesame dressing by adding the sesame oil, lemon juice, soya sauce, chopped coriander leaves, salt, pepper powder,grated ginger and sesame seeds in a large bowl..once the cooked udon noodles get cooled, add the sesame dressing and toss the noodles gently with wooden spatula until the noodles get well coated..

Serve chilled r in room temperature!

This chilled udon noodles are really very refreshing to have while its too hot, this salad goes to Priti's Summer Treat ...
