I just love ramen haha
For someone who doesn't like pasta, I'm pretty hooked on ramen. I have been trying to make some a few times, but this is the first time that I actually took the time to cook the broth, and it was definitely the right decision. Even though I didn't have all kinds of bones the recipe called for I was able to achieve a rich meaty flavor with a few chicken legs I used for it.
For the full recipe and guide, please head over to RAMEN: CREAMY CHICKEN STOCK | TORI PAITAN | 鶏ガラパイタン.
As far as toppings go I decided to just throw in there what I had around in my fridge. Some carrots, spinach, scallions, sesame seeds, lime and boiled eggs that I previously let sit in low sodium soy sauce overnight.
Unfortunately, I completely forgot that my eggs were on the stove and I let them cook for far too long, than needed, I ended up with hard egg yolks instead of those runny and velvety ones, will definitely have to be more on point with them next time haha. They tasted awesome regardless, if I must say so myself.
Oh yeah, how are you liking these super dark photos? Been playing around with old camera Camera Raw presets, pretty content with the way the colors look in these pictures, and that grain, I always appreciate some.
