Here’s one a friend in Indonesia sent me a while back – thanks! So these are rice noodles – which are called bihun over in Indonesia. Rasa Kari ayam Pedas translates to spicy curry chicken flavor. This looks like a tasty one – let”s see how it comes out.
Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, boil 350ml water and add noodle block. Put seasoning sachet contents in a bowl, except the fried onion sachet. After noodles have cooked for 2 minutes, put in bowl and stir. Garnish with fried onion. Enjoy!
The rice noodle block.
A dual sachet of dry ingredients – soup base on the left and chilli powder on the right.

Another dual sachet – fried onion on the left and seasoned oil on the right.

Fried onion garnish.
Finished (click image to enlarge). Added chicken, hard boiled egg, bell pepper, sweet onion and BonCabe Level 10 chilli seasoning. The noodles have a slightly smaller gauge than your standard fried wheat noodle. Kind of a nice gauge for rice noodle as well. They have a light chewiness and are pleasant to eat. The broth is quite good – a nice chicken curry flavor is augmented by the oil whichh gives it a little heartiness. The fried onion garnish adds a nice finish. 3.75 out of 5.0 stars.UPC bar code 089686038118.
