2. Ching’s Secret – Hot Garlic Instant Noodles

Ching’s is an Indian company producing Chinese cuisine inspired ingredients, condiments and ready to eat meals including their range of instant noodle and it is easily available in shops across the country. One can even order them online from various e-commerce websites (what a time to be alive!). IMG_3645_CB

I do like my noodles spicy and I love garlic in my food so it was a no-brainer that I picked this up. Let us see if they are hot and garlicky enough!

Priced at Rupees 12/- only! Sweet. This has a green dot on the packet, claiming its purely vegetarian.

Cooking instructions as on the packet –

  1. Boil 250ml (1.5 cups) of water.
  2. Add noodles and seasoning mix to the boiling water and cook for 2-3 min., stirring occasionally. Serve hot.

I like the color of this seasoning and it has got a good garlicky aroma to it.

Personally I never break the noodles and I put the whole block as it is in boiling water. And i add lesser water than suggested on the packets because I prefer my noodle slightly under cooked so it holds its texture and does not become a blob of food on my plate.

And most importantly cook with a pair of chopsticks! In case you do not have a pair handy, use a fork to get your way around.

Glad to report that these noodles are a really good kind of spicy with a good kind of garlic flavor and you get bits of garlic in every bite. I like. The noodles soaked up the water within about two and a half minutes and have a nice even coating of the sauce making each bite equally good.

I did not feel the need to add anything but I do plan to experiment with them for sure (maybe add some cheese and chili oil the next time) …they have the potential for greater things. And yes, definitely stocking a few packets of these for midnight instant noodle cravings!
