Meet The Manufacturer: #1466: MAMA Oriental Style Instant Noodles Green Curry Flavour Jumbo Pack

To start things off, I’m sure you have all heard of the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. What it is for those of you who haven’t, is a campaign to increase awareness of ALS (Lou Gehrig’s Disease), a motor neuron disease which causes the connections between the mind and muscles to degrade. The challenge involves a person having a ton of icewater dumped on them, and then nominating three people to do the same. Yesterday, my sister nominated me after she was nominated. Usually, you have 24 hours to accept and carry out the challenge. Today, I’m going to be getting a lot of icewater dumped on me! At the bottom of this review will be my sister’s challenge, and tomorrow’s review will feature me getting drenched! If you want to help, please consider donating to ALSA.org.

Today, I’m reviewing green curry! This sounds so good – I tried the local version a while back and it was pretty good! Let’s see how this one in a bigger size comes out!

Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge). Contains shrimp. To prepare, add everything from the package into a bowl. Add 400ml boiling water and cover for 3 minutes. stir and enjoy!

The noodle block.

The powder soup baser.

A lot of light powder with flecks.

The green curry liquid.

Now that smells really great!

 

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added shrimp, green nira, mung bean sprouts and coriander. The noodles are thin and plentiful with a good texture and chewiness. The broth has a really nice heat to it and more than I expected. The flavor is a very nice green curry. Excellent! 5.0 out of 5.0 stars.EAN bar code 8850987145049.

My sister did it! Wow! Watch tomorrow to see me do it!
