4 cups water
4 portions of dried noodles
1 medium cucumber, julienned

Optional: kimchi, cherry tomatoes or boiled eggs


1. Wash and soak soybeans in water for 6 hours or overnight in the fridge. The soybeans will become plump.

3. Blend cooked soybeans, nuts, sesame seeds and water till smooth. It should be of a consistency like thickened soup. Pour into a jug and chilled overnight.
4. On the next day, cook noodles according to the package instructions. When done, wash the noodles with water. Remove excess water and divide between 4 bowls.

1) Finely slice ¼ yellow onion and mix with the rest of the sauce ingredients. Set aside.
2) Peel and grate potatoes and onion either by using a grater or blender. Pour the potato mash over a sieve, and let the liquid drain into a bowl. Set aside for 10 minutes. Do not worry if some discolouration happens due to oxidation, as the taste will not be affected.
3) When 10minutes is up, drain away the collected liquid in the bowl, leaving behind the potato starch. Place the potato mash into the bowl and mix with the potato starch and salt.
4) Pour a ladle of potato mixture into a preheated pan, and lightly press to form a circle shape. Flip the pancakes when the sides crisp up and continue to fry till golden brown on both sides.
