61. KOKA Oriental Instant Noodles – Chicken Flavour

As unbelievable as it may sound, but every simple chicken flavored instant noodle variety gets me excited!

 These KOKA noodles are manufactured in Singapore and lately I have seen KOKA products in quite a few stores in India as well! In fact, a lot of KOKA instant noodle flavors are now available in India.

Cooking directions –

  1. Place noodles into 400ml of boiling water and cook for 2 minutes.
  2. Add seasoning and stir.
  3. Transfer to bowl and serve.

The soup base has that heady chicken broth aroma (which I love!) along with some dried chive flakes. And the seasoning oil, which has no mention at the back of the packet, seems to be spicy canola oil.

Strangely the packet doesn’t say anything about these being soupy in nature and they also seem to have forgotten to mention about the seasoning oil! Weird. I will take away ½ a point for lack of proper info (which I am very fussy about).

So firstly, while cooking these, I added lesser water than recommended. Secondly, the texture of these noodles is no doubt amazing! They are firm and chewy at the same time.

On the whole the dish looks bland and has a weak chicken flavor. However, the spicy flavoring oil does its job and adds the much needed spicy kick to it.

I was still not happy with how my plate looked, hence decided to add some pan fried spicy chicken sausages!

All in all, this is a bland but slightly spicy plate of instant noodles for you.

I am slightly perturbed by the fact that the information on the pack is grossly misleading and incomplete. I personally like to be sure of what I am buying to eat when not on the job. So I really do hope this review helps you make better decisions J

The products are always rated on their original taste!
