Packet ramen is nothing compared to the real deal. This graphic shows you how to make the real stuff at home, complete with the ingredients you’ll need and 25 different regional varieties you can try.
The full graphic is a Kickstarter success story that’s available as a full 16″x20″ print ($US30) that you can order directly from the creator (at the link below.) Each form of ramen is shown top down so you can see what the finished product looks like, complete with the ingredients that make it so special. It’s pretty enough to be art, but instructive enough to help you get in the kitchen and make something new.
For example, Yamagata cold Ramen is generally served with a beef-based broth with roast pork, cucumbers, bamboo shoots, spring onions and ice cubes to keep everything nice and cold — perfect for a hot day. Meanwhile Tantanmen brings the heat with a chicken-based broth, spiced ground pork, chilli oil, Chinese hot bean sauce and Chinese sesame paste, all in one tasty (but spicy) bowl.
