MEASURING

So one thing I’ve found is that sometimes it isn’t exactly logical what is printed on the back of noodle packaging so maybe I can help. For example, I’ve had packs say 400cc of water followed by saying that 400cc of water is 1 1/2 cups of water, but another one says its about 2 cups of water. 400cc of water is 1.7 cups.  Closer to 1 1/2 cups I guess. I look at it as being a kind of how flavorful do you want it kind of thing. Then again, you can always use this calculator to convert cubic centimeters [cc’s] into cups. I like going this route…

Then there’s the taza. It drove me nuts for a long time actually! A package I had called for 2 tazas of water. I tried to figure how many tazas are in a cup for eons. Well, a taza IS a cup. So there’s that mystery solved.

Its really important to read those directions – I can’t stress thiis more! I mean, Indomie Mi Goreng is going to taste like completely crap if you didn’t drain the water. So watch the instructions.
