#1722: CarJEN Otentiq Cheezy Curry Instant Noodles

Recently, I reviewed the new CarJEN Otentiq Cheezy Mushroom variety and really liked it. This one is the curry variety – I love curry as anyone who sees my top ten lists can realize rather quickly. What’s neat is that I don’t think I’ve seen cheese curry in an instant before, however I have had cheese curry in an Indian restaurant. Well, let’s see what we have here – it certainly looks nice!

Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, add noodle block to 400ml boiling water and cook for 2 minutes. Add in curry powder and cheese powder sachet contents and stir evenly. Add in chilli flakes and enjoy!

The noodle block.

The soup base sachet.

Has a strong curry scent.

The cheese powder sachet.

Very cheesy!

The chilli flakes sachet.

Looks spicy!

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added hard boiled egg, shrimp, Swiss cheese, Chinese long bean, tau pok and white onion. The noodles hydrated very well and had a genuinely enjoyable gauge and mouthfeel. The broth was very rich – strong curry flavor with an underlying cheese taste. The chilli flake was a nice addition and gave an extra kick. 4.5 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 9557226083047.

This is pretty good – Gordon Ramsey get some guys to start cooking Malaysia curry and badmouths the crap they had in their fridge previously. I tend to do this to a lot of my friends. Usually, I’ll get a lift to the Asian market and then give them a tour of what to buy to make something truly delicious and well-rounded. Would be nice to get a visit from Chef Ramsey though…
