2 spring onions + 1 finely chopped green part

1 piece of ginger

1 tablespoon of katsuobushi

1 kombu seaweed leaf

chashu

2 tablespoons of corn

nitamago

1 piece of garlic

1 piece of ginger

1 tablespoon of sesame oil

1 1/2 tablespoon miso (I used the red one)

1/2 tablespoon of tobanjan

2 tablespoons of sake

2 1/2 tablespoons of soy sauce

1 tablespoon of white sesame seeds

1 pinch of salt

1 teaspoon of sugar

PREPARATION OF RAMEN

- Prepare the miso base and set aside.

- Place the chicken carcass (or wings), white onion, 2 whole spring onions, sliced ​​ginger, garlic, katsuobushi and kombu seaweed in a saucepan. Bring to a boil and simmer for at least 3 hours in a normal pot, one hour and a half in a pressure cooker.

- Once the broth is cooked, use a spatula or wooden spoon to pulp the cooked chicken so as to split it completely.

- Pour the broth with all the ingredients into another container using a tightly woven sieve. Using the spatula or wooden spoon, scrape all the ingredients into the colander in order to filter as much as possible and thus make the broth dense. Keep aside warm.

- Prepare the bowl by putting the miso-based sauce and a ladle of broth inside. Dissolve the miso base in the hot broth with the help of a wooden spoon or a hand whisk.

- Cook the noodles, drain and cool them immediately with cold running water. Drain them well again.

- Pour the noodles into the bowl. Add more boiling broth.

- Garnish the ramen with slices of chashu, corn, nitamago and the finely chopped green part of the spring onion. Serve immediately.
