      The deep yellow color that the noodles are getting is not from the air fryer, it's because the baked baking soda being more alkaline produces a deeper yellow in the flour. It's just a chemical reaction. As far as the "wave" in the noodles, you can achieve the same result by taking you portion of noodles and basically squeeze them tightly in your hands. When they are properly floured they will "crinkle" into waves without sticking. I will say that aside from those observations, you did an incredible job as always!

      noodles curl from when you cut them, try boiling a flat dough then cut them.

    The extremely low hydration of ramen noodles was such a pain to work with, but the results were awesome! :)
    You can use "baked baking soda" for the alkaline water at home, also works for pretzels.

    I thought you were joking about the MSG the whole time. WTF?! In gourmet food? In my opinion, you ruined this dish and part of my trust in you. For those sensitive to MSG, it can result in migraines. MIGRAINES! What a horrible thing to give someone...and fully preventable. I had never had a migraine until I got really busy a while back and stopped cooking for myself. I bought my meals from a local Chinese restaurant that had great-tasting food and used lots of veggies. I normally always make sure my Chinese restaurants don't use MSG (as some don't use it), but this time I got lazy and didn't ask. (They used MSG.) Anyway, about 2 - 2.5 weeks later, eating the Chinese food almost every day, I ended up with a migraine. OMG. I wouldn't wish that on anyone! I asked about the MSG and dropped the restaurant from my diet immediately. I've never experienced a second migraine. This is the first Claire video that I've ever disliked. Encouraging MSG use in cooking from a company like BA that has a large following is simply inexcusable in my opinion.

    There is Micheline Star instant ramen- Shes got the worst versions of instant ramen. The best ones have a paste-y seasoning with some kind of sesame oil. Not all instant ramen has the curl, but the curl comes from the extruder that curls them the same way you curl a ribbon- its crazy. Alex the French Guy Cooking as a good video series on making instant ramen- Im pretty sure he dehydrates it. Hes also got 3? different versions of the seasoning packet depending on how much effort you want to put it. Its a ton of work, in any case.

    5:00, washing soda, not baking soda, also I'm guessing the presence and ratio of potassium carbonate is critical, otherwise they wouldn't bother and would just use sodium carbonate, seeing as it's far cheaper. Potassium carbonate is the majority of the soluble component of white wood ashes. Probably if you were going to do it from scratch, white ashes dried seaweed leeched then evaporate might be about right, and perhaps this is where it comes from in the first place.

      Also it isn't added to the dough, it's a soak for the noodles once formed.

    As a kid growing up in Eastern Europe we always ate ramen noodles but they were called rolton, for like 10-15 cents we would buy them, crush them add seasoning and eat them like that, some kids even snorted the seasoning 😂
