Re-Review: Indomie Curly Noodle With Chicken & Chilli Paddi

This is one that ended up at second place on the Top Ten Spiciest Instant Noodles Of All Time – that means its really hot! There are these tiny little peppers (chilli paddi) that are real scorchers and they’re small enough that when you happen to find one, you get quite a jolt! I reviewed this a while back this year – #732 and during the Meet The Manufacturer: Indomie special. This is one of the packs sent directly from Indofood in Indonesia – I am told they will be sending some new samples very soon! Can’t wait to try them!

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added sweet onions, turkey breast, two scrambled eggs and some Dua Belibis chilli sauce. Noodles are quite good – same style as the #1 from the Top Ten Instant Noodles Of All Time list. The flavor is nice – the noodles are coated with a slightly spicy but sweet flavor – and those little peppers pop up now and again and blow your head off – exhilarating! 4.25 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 089686040692 .

How do they make Indomie? Watch and see! I believe this is an African plant but I’m sure its not much different in Indonesia.

Here’s another one that from my friend in Jakarta, Indonesia was kind enough to send – thanks again! So curly noodles with onion chicken flavor – sounds tasty!

Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge).

Unbroken noodle block.

Powder seasoning on the left and chili powder on the right.

Here’s the seasoning powder with the chili powder on top.

Seasoned oil.

Looks interesting – and it has a strong onion scent.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added some veggies, a couple fried eggs with Krazy Mixed Up Salt and some Dua Belibis. The noodles were nice – slightly springy and just right. The broth was nice – a slight spiciness, good chicken taste and strong onion flavor. Good stuff! 3.75 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 089686014679 .

Check out this SuperMi commercial – and the heart shapoed hard boiled egg slices! That’s pretty rad – wonder how they do that…

Thanks egg dude, you da man.

#863: Indomie Mi Keriting Goreng Spesial (Special Fried Curly Noodles)

2012_9_10_863_001

Here’s something special! This is the version of the special fried curly noodles that they get in Indonesia! What’s funny is that it looks like the date on the front is today! The special fried curly noodles we get here in the US from Indomie tops my Top Ten Instant Noodles Of All Time list. Let’s give these a try.

Here’s the back of the packaging. Click to enlarge.

Then he ponders the Star Trek episode we watched  last night in which Mr. Spock says ‘logic is a wreath of pretty flowers that smell bad.’

The noodle block.

On the left are the dehydrated veggies and on the right is the seasoning powder.

From the back of the packaging, I think the round slices are pieces of chicken ball.

Here’s the seasoning powder.

The liquid packets: seasoned oil, chili sauce and sweet soy sauce.

Here’s the seasoned oil…

Here’s the sweet soy sauce and chili sauce.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added onion, Fresno chili peppers, kizami shoga (pickled ginger), two fried eggs with Krazy Mixed Up Salt and some Dua Belibis chili sauce. The noodles and broad and flat – deiniftely different than the usual Indomie noodles. The flavor is spicy and sweet and wonderful. This is much like the one we get here, but with a little nicer veggies. Perfect. 5.0 out of 5.0 stars. I have heard that they may be getting rid of the Special Curly or the Special Grilled Chicken flavors soon. hope not! UPC bar code 089686040647 – the one I reviewed here was sent to me special by Indomie from Jakarta, Indonesia. You can get the export version, thought it is tough to find – here.

Hey you Luxembourgers! Indomie’s coming your way soon!

So Nigeria’s film industry (Nollywood), makes a lot of films and here’s a trailer for one of them. A lot of yelling and bits of english in there.

#732: Meet The Manufacturer – Indomie Curly Noodle With Chicken & Chilli Paddi

Alrighty – I’m going out on a limb here, but I’m guessing this is going to be spicy stuff. Let’s find out! First off, what’s chilli paddi? Wikipedia says:

Bird’s eye chili or “Thai chili” (Thai: พริกขี้หนู, RTGS: phrik khi nu, IPA: [pʰrík kʰîː nǔː], literal: Rat dropping chili; Indonesian: Cabai rawit; Malay: Cili api or Cili padi; Tagalog: siling labuyo) is a chili pepper of the species Capsicum frutescens L. in the family Solanaceae, commonly found in Southeast Asia. It can also be found in India, in Meghalaya & in Kerela it is used in traditional dishes of the Kerala cuisine (pronounced in Malayalam as kanthari mulaguMalayalam: കാന്താരി മുളക്). This species (known as කොච්චි (kochchi) in sinhalese) is also found in rural areas of Sri Lanka, where it is used as a substitute for green chillies. It is also a main ingredient in kochchi sambal, a salad made using freshly scraped coconut ground with thai chillies and seasoned with salt and lime juice.

The term Bird’s eye chili is also used for the North American Chiltepin pepper, both due to their small round shape and because they’re widely spread by birds.

Okay – I’ve had hot sauce with these in it before – aye yay yay! Very hot. Let’s go for it!

Here’s the back of the packaging (click image to enlarge).

I really like the ‘special’ noodles – they’re a bit flatter than the usual.

Not many packets in this one – here’s the liquid seasoning…

There’s quite a bit of the stuff, too.

Here’s the veggie packet – very full!

See that red thing? Yep – that’s the chilli pepper!

Finished (click image to enlarge). I added a bit of the veggies we got from the local produce stand which my wife turned into a stir fry mix for me (thanks again, honey!), a half of a lime, a fried egg that I did up in a star-shaped cookie cutter with some Huy Fong Sriracha and a little Krazy Mixed Up Salt on top. Oh – and a bit of kizami shoga (pickled ginger) and beef. So what was the first thing I did? Yeah – I put that chilli pepper in my mouth. Oh man that’s some serious heat! That sucker means business!  Only one of them though – although one’s enough for me – the heat lasted during the whole meal! The noodles were great and the flavor was sweet and spicy. This was good stuff! I can’t imagine if I hadn’t pulled that little pepper out and had found it at a random point. Good stuff – 4.25 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 089686040692 .
