#728: Meet The Manufacturer: Indomie Mi Instan Rasa Kari Ayam Medan Khas Sumatera Utara (Medan Chicken Curry)

Here’s another one of the regional special varieties that Indomie makes. This one’s chicken curry from Medan, a city in Indonesia. Let’s give it a try! By the way – check out the interview I did with Indomie here!

Here’s the back of the packaging (click image to enlarge).

The noodle block awaits the bath of boiling water.

The very familiar Indomie packet combo – powdered seasoning on the left and chili powder on the right.

IHere’s the contents of the packets – I only used part of the chili powder.

A big packet of seasoned oil.

Has a sweet scent.

Finally, the finishing touch – the garnish! Fried onions! Slightly more than usual.

These add a nice little crunch.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added some local veggies from the Country Farms produce stand, a little chicken lunch meat and a bit of kizami shoga (pickled ginger).  Ohhh I do enjoy curry! The noodles are great – good firmness and good amount of them. The broth is awesome – a great curry flavor – rich and tasty! The fried onion on top of everything adds a nice little crunch. This is where it’s at curry fans! 5.0 out of 5.0 stars! UPC bar code 089686011166 – althought you can’t get this one in the United States, there is an Indomie variety that is curry flavored called Rasa Kari Ayam – no Medan in the title but very good stuff. You can get it in the US, too – here it is.

This guy has a great Indonesian Kari Ayam recipe! Check it out!

    That seasoning oil doesn’t really look oily. Is that an illusion, or is it really less oily than the other varieties, and more of a liquid seasoning?
    I really do wish I could try some of these varieties of IndoMie noodles. They have always been my favorite brand.

      It’s an oil, it’s just that there’s more of it and it’s faster moving if that makes any sense. The pics of the other ones are usually of the lighter colored oil that has smallish bits in it. It’s oil but the soup isn’t greasy.

    Indomie Rasa Kari Ayam is different from the Medan Chicken Curry in your review. The Medan curry variety is definitely a much better tasting noodle than the original Kari Ayam. For your information, Medan is well known for its great culinary scene in Indonesia and has one of the best “Straits” food scenes in this part of Southeast Asia.
