The Not-Stupid Instant Noodle

I used to eat a lot of instant noodle especially when I was in school and uni. Back then, we dont have kitchen so instant noodle was usually made using boiled water poured into a tupperware or something with no other ingredients thus I called it mee bodoh (stupid noodle). heheh.

I do still like to eat instant noodle and my fav brand would be maggi mee. Be it chicken flavor or curry or assam laksa. Unfortunately the asian store that I usually frequent dont carry that brand so I just settled with the regular ramen noodle. :(

Speaking of chicken flavor maggi mee, I would crack and egg and eat it with tomato sos (ketchup) but I hardly do that anymore here since the taste of the ketshup is not the same as maggi tomato sos. if there's anything that Im particular about, it would be the tomato sos (maggi), chili sos (lingham) and sweet soy sos (habhal). Of all 3, only 1 is available here that is lingham chili sos.

Geez, do I ramble a lot today or what? lol. I think im in a wrong blog. Should have rambled on the other side. ;) But then again, there's no recipe for this not-stupid noodle. As you can clearly see from the pic, I just add an egg and some vegies into my noodle and cut chili with soy sauce on the side.

How do you enjoy your instant noodle?

I wonder why you called it Mee Bodoh. It is because it's so easy to cook that orang bodoh pun boleh masak ha ha.. like you I still prefer mee maggi. I find indo mee tak sedap lah. Baunya semacam only.

Gert, i call it mee bodoh sbb mee tu kosong. takde telur or sayur. hehe. yes, i pun kurang sikit dgn indomie but wht to do, no choice. michael cannot even eat indomie becaue of the smell. lol.

I did not hv much memory of this "mee bodoh" during my childhood (mom was rather particular 'bout its nutrition). Now as a mom, I forbid my girls to eat this but enjoy mine with lots of chillies (cili padi lagi power!) when they are either in school or asleep ;-).

If it's dry, I like to toss in sesame oil, ketchup and sometimes garlic chili sauce. If it's soup, I like to crack in an egg!

Both good!
