2. Blanch peeled doraji in boiling water, shred and season with "B" ingredients. Cut carrots and onions into thin match stick strips. Spinach, watercress or other vegetable can be substituted for bellflower roots.

3. Boil noodles until soft, rinse in cold water, drain, cut into thirds and mix in the "C" ingredients. Beat egg, fry, cool and cut into match stick strips. If you have the inclination, you can separate whites and yolks and treat them separately.
