So here’s what the folks at Japan Crate had to say about this variety -“Take a break from the accompanying udon and ramen noodles with this vermicelli noodle dish. Vermicelli is a traditional type of pasta similar to spaghetti. With an added green curry sauce, toss your favorite meat and vegetables for a filling feast.”
I’m a green curry nut. Let’s get to it.
Nagatani Green Curry Rice Vermicelli – Japan
Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge). Unsure whether this contains meat. To prepare, add vermicelli to a skillet with 200mlk boiling water and cook 3 minutes. Add in liquid base. Stir and enjoy!
The rice vermicelli.
The green curry base sachet.
Finished (click to enlarge). Added chicken seasoned with NuTek Salt For Life, red bell pepper, spring onion and Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts. The vermicelli hydrated pretty well but was slightly tough which was a surprise. The notion that this was akin to pasta kind of seems evident here. I find the gauge too thick. The green curry flavor is pretty good – could have used a slight bit more. All in all, tasty. 4.5 out of 5.0 stars/. JAN bar code 4902388014906.
A frog in his throat perhaps!
