#2704: Maggi Cuppa Chilly Chow

#2704: Maggi Cuppa Chilly Chow

Found this one down in Pleasanton, California during our road trip to visit family in August. Boy – that was a journey! We took Miles (almost 2 years old) and Miri (8 months old). I can say that car seats would be comfy I think but if I were that age I sure wouldn’t want to sit in one for that long – I think the way down was 18 hours and we broke the drive back into two chunks – I think altogether that was about 24 hours with all the stops.

Anyways, while down there we hit some Indian grocery stores. This variety I think is Indian (or Desi) Chinese food; spicy chow mein perhaps? Let’s check it out!

Lots of loose reddish seasoning.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added coriander. These flat noodles are abundant here and enjoyable. The broth is indeed a bit on the spicy side, but the only problem is that I’m not getting a really great flavor. The broth (more of a sauce) is very monotone. Little bits here and there are nice though. 3.5 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 8901058845617.

#2599: Maggi Cuppa Masala - India - The Ramen Rater - instant noodles

Found this one in California! I’ve been curious about Indian grocery stores lately as each one has had a different variety or two I’ve not reviewed. Honestly, the more reviews I do, the closer I get to doing a top ten India list. A ways to go though! Here’s a little about Maggi instant noodles in India from Wikipedia –

Maggi instant noodles are popular in IndiaPakistan and Malaysia. Nestle has 39% market share in Malaysia, where “Maggi” is synonymous with instant noodles,[5] and had 90% market share in India prior to a nationwide ban by the Food Safety and Standards Authority of India. Following the ban, the market share was reduced to 53% in India.[6] In Malaysia, fried noodles made from Maggi noodles are called Maggi goreng.

In June 2015, tests in India found high amounts of lead in Maggi noodles. The Food Safety and Standards Authority of India ordered a national recall for all 9 variants of Maggi Instant Noodles and Oats Masala Noodles.[7][8]

In India, Maggi noodles carry a green dot, meaning they are specifically formulated to serve vegetarians.[9] This special formulation is not available in other countries, unless imported from India.

So now you know – the green dot means vegetarian-friendly. Let’s check it out!

Loose seasoning and veg from the cup.

Finished (click to enlarge). The noodles come out fluffy and buttery which I thoroughly enjoyed. The masala flavor isn’t overwhelmingly strong like I like it, but strong enough to impart a rich and tasty flavor. The peas. I always find peas don’t hydrate well – well, these did. They came out nice and mushy as they should. 3.75 out of 5.0 stars.EAN bar code 8901058844757.

#360: Nissin Cup Noodles Hearty Chicken Flavor Ramen Noodle Soup

Another one from California! Thanks my lovely Kitten! So this should be good I hope! Onward!

Pretty standard here – just remember – don’t microwave the styrofoam!

That’s a lot of seasoning! Didn’t see any veggies though.

Click image to enlarge. Yep – veg-less! So I think a more apt name would be creamy chicken flavor. It’s not bad, although I must admit the noodles didn’t seem to get done enough. I even gave them extra time and they were still a little tough. Not bad, not great. 2.5 out of 5.0 stars. Get it here. UPC code 070662030233.

#265: Nissin Cup Noodles Chicken Flavor

Yeah okay I know… After 264 reviews I’m finally getting to the Nissin Chicken Cup Noodles. Let’s get to it.

So here’s the inner lid – I accidentally busted the top of it – got a little rough…

Here’s the indoors of the chicken cup noodles. Very good looking – lots of veggies.

Click image to enlarge. And finally, the finished product. The noodles weren’t bad and the broth was good  but the highlight here was the veggies and bits of chicken like stuff. I liked it – giving this one a 3.5 out of 5.0 stars. Get it here.
