Story Time

From watching people slurping Ramen in K-Dramas to creating different kinds of Ramen at home – we had our own journey of falling in love with this amazing recipe. Initially, we thought that we won’t like it and that it is a little tedious to eat it and even more time taking to prepare it at home. But we fell in love in just one bowl. Now we create our own versions at home and we literally wait for the rainy season and winter season so that we can have it. In fact, as soon as the winter season arrives, I prepare the broth and always keep it in my fridge. Because we use it a lot.

After trying this recipe, we experimented a lot with other Asian recipes too and I feel Asian recipes have become our favorites now. Even when we go out, our eyes literally look for Asian restaurants 😀 I think that soon it is going to rule the world. No doubt about that.

What is Ramen?

Ramen is a Japanese noodle soup recipe. But you will find different kinds of Ramen in other Asian countries too. Every region has its own way of making it. They add their own special ingredients and create new flavors. However, ramen mostly consists of the following:

  1. The flavorful and aromatic broth
  2. Cooked veggies like mushrooms, bell peppers, carrots, broccoli, etc. But you can also add meat if you are a non-vegetarian.
  3. Seasonings and flavors like soy sauce, chili oil, miso, peanut butter, etc.
  4. Toppings like sesame seeds, peanuts, bean sprouts, nori, seaweeds, scallions, etc.
  5. Boiled Noodles

How to prepare vegetable broth?

Making broth is very simple and easy, It just needs time to infuse all the flavors in the water. It is cooked at a simmer for a long time, around 2 hours so that veggies can slowly release their flavors. In fact, the longer you cook, the better the flavor. You can even let it cook for 5 to 6 hours. But do not boil the vegetables. It is supposed to be cooked on low flame. I mostly cook it in my Instant Pot and it takes around 1 hour to prepare a delicious, flavorful, and aromatic broth.

Basically, you can use any vegetable or vegetable discards (like peels or old veggies) and add them to a large saucepan. Cover the veggies with water. The veggies should be soaked in. You will need around 3 to 4 liters of water for that. So, a 5-liter saucepan would be fine. You can add some spices too like cinnamon, cloves, and black pepper but that is optional. It depends on what recipes you are going to prepare with the broth. For example, If you are preparing risotto, then you would need a simple, neutral flavor broth. No flavor should be dominating.

After that, cover it and let it cook on low flame for around 1.5 to 2 hours (or longer). You can remove the foamy layer but you don’t need to. Once done, strain and store. Isn’t it simple to prepare? Check out the broth recipe for more details.
