So the new place I found, Boo Han Oriental Market, is really making me happy already. Looky here, looky here – curry ramen!
Two packets – veggies and dry powder. It mentions on the back that 300mg of Turmeric is included for your health! I had no idea turmeric had health benefits. Wikipedia says:
It is taken in some Asian countries as a dietary supplement, which allegedly helps with stomach problems and other ailments. It is popular as a tea in Okinawa, Japan. Pakistanis also use it as an anti-inflammatory agent, and remedy for gastrointestinal discomfort associated with irritable bowel syndrome, and other digestive disorders. In Afghanistan and northwest Pakistan, turmeric is applied to a piece of burnt cloth, and placed over a wound to cleanse and stimulate recovery. Indians, in addition to its Ayurvedic properties, use turmeric in a wide variety of skin creams that are also exported to neighboring countries.
So I’m figuring here it’s going to clean me out. I dunno though; curry seldomn has a negative side effect on me other than ferocious breath.
So some powder and some veggies. Decent amount of veggies and lots of the powder base.
Finished product (click image to enlarge).Noodles were stalwart and fought off weakness as well as mush factor. They were surprisingly chewy! Broth wasn’t bad – I think a bit less salt would’ve beenn fine. The curry flavor is there and the heat is interesting. Not what I exactly expected. I’m giving this one a 3.5 out of 5.0 stars. It’s a big bowl of Korean curry soup and I like it.
