Udon noodles

HLing | Dec 4, 2007 09:12 PM

I just saw the Japanese movie called "Udon" - all about Udon in Sanuki region where there are something like 900 udon shops for the 1 million people there, as compared to the 500 McDonalds for teh 12 Million people in Tokyo...

There was a brief how-to in the the point when the subtitle read, " knead to noodle with you feet..." which of course comes on before the action is shown, and I was momentarily taken aback...but not to worry...they wear sock..(just'll have to watch the movie :)

ANYWAY, does anyone know how to make udon noodles? For the past weeks I've been flirting with making hand-pulled noodles, which is turning out to be quite a difficult task. While taking a break from Hand-pulled noodles, I'd like to give udon a shot if more detailed instructions can be had from the great Chowhound Home Cooking folks!
