The liquid base sachet.
A cloudy deep liquid.
The dry sachet.
Finished (click to enlarge). Added Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts and a little coriander of my own. The noodles were are little on the tough side even after the 3 minutes allotted. However the broth more than made up for that with a rich and tasty curry. As far as being spicy, it was spicy but very mellow heat-level. 3.5 out of 5.0 stars. JAN bar code 4902105064351.
Well, this looks like a meal I would enjoy!
