4. Indomie – Mi Goreng Instant Noodles

IMG_4689_CB

These are my all-time absolute favorite instant noodles! I don’t even share these with my boyfriend. They are soooo good. Salivating already!

Indomie is the largest instant noodle manufacturer in Indonesian and they produce a variety of flavors, around 38 of them! Wow! This one here is the original version and you’ve got to try this. I kid you not.

Easily available in most countries but sadly it hasn’t made its way to India yet, however, they are available on popular e-commerce websites. I have never tried ordering online but I guess will soon have to, as my stock is almost over. Yes, I hoard them at home.

  1. Bawang goreng – the dried fried onions.
  2. Bumbu is the dry seasoning. Bumbu recipes use certain collection or combination of different spices and the list is exhaustive! Do take a whiff of it.

  2. In the middle is the thick and sweet Indonesian soy sauce (kecap manis)
  3. And the right most is the seasoning oil with garlic flakes!

I like my noodles a little tough and not too soft so I boil them for about 2 minutes only. Also never mix the fried onions with other condiments but instead sprinkle them on top of the finished dish to keep them super crunchy.

Every time I eat these instant noodles, I fall a little more for them. It’s a perfect balance of all these flavors – spicy, sweet and salty! And that extra crunchiness of the fried onions is so good and does wonders to this dish. Salute to you Indomie!
