#2129: CarJEN Hot & Spicy Dry Curry With Chives Soup

CarJEN has come up with something new! This one has not only a dry mee goreng, but a companion soup that you can enjoy alongside it. I’ve seen this before, but never in Malaysian varieties. There’s a popular Taiwanese instant that has a noodle and a soup separate kind of thing going too. Very curious about this one indeed. Let’s see how this all works!

Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, add the noodle block to 400ml boiling water and cook for 2 minutes. Drain, saving 60ml water. Add the paste to the water and stir well. Add this to the noodles and stir well. Add in chili flake. This completes the noodle instructions. For the chives soup, add sachet contents to 200ml boiling water and stir well. Enjoy!

Spicy stuff!

Finished (click to enlarge). Added Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, baked chicken and coriander.Starting with the noodles, they’re good and chewy with a nice quantity. They work very well in a mee moreng situation. The flavor – so there’s that chilli flake sachet. My wife made this for me on Father’s Day and used it all – spicy to the max! But I was curious today so I tried it without the chilli flakes. It has a very luxuriant curry taste I really like – a nice strong curry with a very good Hokkien Prawn kind of hit to it. As for the chives soup, it’s a nice little slurp between bites – not overly salty and has a lot of bits of chives in there. I should mention, however: if you’re looking for respite from the spicy heat of the noodles, look elsewhere! The broth drives that spicy taste deeper into your tastebuds! This was really fun to make and eat! 5.0 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 9557226083719.

Curious about where these instant noodles come from? Well, they’re made in Melaka, Malaysia. Where’s Melaka? Perhaps this map would help!
