Posted in reply to a request. Translated from a Japanese language cookbook (Shinkatei Hyakkajiten Vol. 1, Kodan-sha, 1967). I have recently made this, and will rearrange the directions to be more user-friendly by the end of April '05. Please regard the amounts of chicken, eggs, kamaboko, as suggestions. Udon are the comparatively thick white Japanese noodles made with white wheat flour. Weighing the miso would be most accurate, but my conversion chart says 160 g miso is equal to 140 ml, or 1/2 US cup plus 1.4 tablespoons. Please use caution, because miso is very salty.
