#807: SuperMi Mi Instan Super Rasa Ayam Bawang

Here’s another one from a friend in  Jakarta, Indonesia! Thank you! So what is Rasa Ayam Bawang you ask? Simple: Garlic Chicken Flavor! Sounds awesome! Oh, but wait – when I translate onion to Indonesian it says bawang too. Uh oh – I’m confused. Can anyone make a comment as to this? It would be greatly appreciated! UPDATE – Just got the comment I was looking for:

bawang = onion; bawang putih (white onion) = garlic

Hey big thanks!

The back of the packaging (click image to enlarge).

The noodle block.

The dry packets – powdered base on the left and chili powder on the right.

Here’s the powder seasoning with the chili powder atop.

Kinda fuzzy – it’s the seasoned oil.

Here’s the oil in a sake cup.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added some onions, Fresno peppers, a fried egg, some baked chicken, pickled ginger and Huy Fong Sriracha hot chili sauce – and pepper. The noodles were nice – fluffy and tasty. The broth was excellent – had a reeally good chicken flavor and the chili powder gave it a nice little kick. Great stuff! 4.0 out of 5.0 stars!

      You know this is fascinating as I just found something I had read in the past. Buddhists call shallots, onions and garlic as well as scallions the ‘fetid vegetables’ and that means smelly. Has to do with the rules of vegetarianism pertaining to Buddhists in Taiwan – interesting that bawang precedes these vegetables – was Indonesia at one time mainly Buddhist or is this just a coincidence?
