In my experience, a bunch of broccolini is usually about 1/2 a pound. Not sure about the radishes or the udon -- sorry!

Reading the recipe, I think it's one of those you can safely add quantities as desired/on hand and to taste. Slice the radishes as you like - if you want more delicate, go thin and if you want more crunch, thick. Add them and the desired amount of broccolini to your tasting. To my mind, the only aspect of the recipe that would seem reasonably cut and dried would be the ratios of sauce ingredients.

Not an expert on Japanese ingredients but I've never seen udon dry - I believe it only comes as you have it, which is pre-cooked and something you just refresh in hot water before using.

You can purchase udon noodles dry. I just purchased them at my local market in the bulk section.
