Introduction: How to Make Ramen From Scratch (easy)

Introduction: The process of making Ramen is considered a form of craft in Japan.
It requires years of practice to master the process of making Ramen. My recipe makes the process easier yet delicious. This recipe is easy because most of the ingredients are readily available. However, you may need to buy one or two ingredients from the store. Always keep in mind a good Ramen takes patience and precision.

Disclaimer: This not an authentic Japanese Ramen but my own take on the recipe.
