Been curious about this masala from Shan for a while. Shan makes a lot of different seasonings as well as the Shoop line of instant noodles. I remember when I first found it and that it was made in Pakistan – I was really excited. Why? Well, I’d only reviewed one instant noodle from Pakistan before, and strangely enough, it was pizza flavored! Anyways, Let’s check out this masala flavour Shan Shoop.
Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, boil 300ml water and add in noodles and seasoning. Cook 2-3 minutes. Enjoy!
The enriched wheat noodle block.
The seasoning sachet.
Has a very strong scent.
Finished (click image to enlarge).Added coriander. The noodles have this texture I like – kind of hard to explain but it works. They have a standard gauge but are definitely a little light with the slightest crumble. The masala flavor was strong and had a kind of lemon hit to it and a kind of bitter and spiced blend as well as a smidge of spiciness. 3.25 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 788821003713.
