Yesterday my wife and I headed over to Bellevue to check oput some new spots for Asian foodstuffs. We came across and Indian supermarket and lo and behold, they had instant noodles! What’s awesome is that they had quite a few Nissin varieties – which I’ve been searching for for quite a while. There are a lot of different way instant noodles are transmitted to the end user: a pack that has contents cooked in a bowl or pot on the stove, cups that are steeped, trays, bowls etc. A few however are made to be steeped in a mug, and here is one of those. This is a relatively small sized package, and hails from India! Let’s have a look.
Here’s the distributor/import sticker (click image to enlarge). Contains no meat.
Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge). To prepare, take a mug. Pour in package contents and add boiling water to cover noodles. Cover and steep for 3 minutes. Stir and enjoy!
Here is what you find inside the packaging. The noodles are very short. What’s nice about these is that you can eat them straight as a snack, and they are somewhat like namkeens. Namkeens are a wonderful thing – kind of like an Indian trail mix, sometimes with raisins, almonds, puffed rice, and almost always with strong seasonings and nice flavors.
Finished (click image to enlarge). This is how it looks unadulterated. The noodles are short as rice and absorbed literally every drop of water in the mug. They were perfectly hydrated. The flavor is lightly spicy and there are nicely hydrated bits of vegetable in there. It reminds me of an Indian fried rice to be honest, It’s quite nice for breakfast. 3.75 out of 5.0 stars.EAN bar code 8901014000128.
If you get these and are in need of a mug, check this one out!
Another product in India by Nissin is called Scoopies!
