Alrighty so these were sent by the Butlers of Illinois – thank you dso much! Looking at all the references to Maggi on this package, I’m guessing this is going to be about the same as Maggi Curry – a variety popular around the world. Oddly and to the surprise of many, these really isn’t a Maggi Curry you can get in the store here in the USA in regular stores – in fact you really don’t see many Maggi branded products here in the states. Let’s give this one a try!
Buitoni Noodles Gusto Curry – Italy
Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, add noodles and sachet to 200ml boiling water in a skillet cook for 2 minutes. Add a tablespoon of oil and cook an additional minute. Finally, stir and enjoy!
The noodle block.
The soup base sachet.
Definitely smells like Maggi curry.
Finished (click to enlarge). Added a sprig of coriander. The noodles came out soft but engorged on water. They also had a nice little bit of oiliness from cooking in the oil. The flavor was like a light curry – one that was very tasty. 3.75 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 4820048618281.
