Wash, drain, and put in a pot.


Add a small amount of water (1-2 cm high, or approx. 1/3 of the height of moyashi), cover, and bring water to boil on high heat.

Cook 3-4 minutes after pot starts to steam.


In the meantime, finely chop green onion.


Drain, and place moyashi in bowl.
Immediately add green onion, and mix well.

Add sesame oil, and mix well.

Add chili pepper, sesame seeds and salt, and mix well. Taste, and add more salt if necessary.
