Chicken noodle soup inspired by Korean Dal Kalguksu

If you are a fan of Korean dramas there is no way you aren't spellbound by Korean cuisine & their finest culinary artistry. Their Japchae (Stir fired noodles), Kimchi (fermented vegetables) & Bibimbap (mixed rice) few of my favorites. As someone who adores their culture, values, traditions, language etc I couldn't resist making this simple chicken noodle soup recipe inspired by Dal Kalguksu.

The original Dal Kalguksu is a steaming hot soup with shredded chicken and knife cut homemade noodles. The fact that they use very few ingredients and spices which doesn't overpower the taste of ingredients is something I love. The way they present their dishes is a true work of art as we are satisfied by the appeal of it even before we taste it. The aroma of fresh ingredients & spices are irresistible.

This is my take on Dal Kalguksu.


Chicken 200g

Garlic 10 cloves

Onion 3 small

Water 10 cups

Butter 1 tbsp

Mushrooms 100g

Soya sauce 1/2 tsp

Oyster sauce 1 tsp

Instant noodles 2 packets

Spinach a handful

Green chilies 1


01) Add 200 g of marinated pieces of chicken into a pot with boiling water.(Marinated with salt, chili powder, pepper)

02) Add cloves of garlic & onions to the same pot and let it cook for 1 hour at high heat.

03)After one hour collect pieces of chicken and shred them.

04)Collect garlic and onion to mash them into a paste.

05)Add soya sauce, oyster sauce to the paste and mix well with boiled noodles.

06)Add butter to a pan and cook striped mushroom.(Season if needed)

07)Serve them in a bowl with fresh spinach & green onions.
