Here’s something pretty fascinating. First off, thanks to Empire International for sending these over! This is from Indonesia, is only 160 calories for the whole package, and… yeah. It’s konjac (pronounced like cognac).- These noodles are incredibly low cal and I’ve honestly had mixed resilts. I’ve had them that are horrible before – thicker noodles. But recently tried some that were thinner and they worked well. These are dry, and I haven’t tried them that way before, so we shall see how it goes. Let’s find out!
Fitmee Konjac Fried Korean Noodle – Indonesia
Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, add noodles and vegetables for 400ml boiling water and cook 3 minutes. Drain. add remaining sachet contents. Finally, stir and enjoy!
The block of konjac noodles.
Dry seasoning base.
A wet sachet of seasoned oil.
A dry sachet of vegetables.
Finished (click to enlarge). Added spring onion. The noodles are kind of rubbery as they employ tapioca flour. Some might be put off by this, but I think they have a certain charm to them. I’ve had konjac noodles before I disliked, but that was completely due to their gauge. These are nice. Flavor is on point with a good spicy hit which is reminiscent of fire noodle. A nice quantity of vegetable and really quite innovative and unique. 3.5 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 8997006449945.
