I love 2 minute noodles. They are life savers. BUT I have not always enjoyed them I really did not understand the fascination until around 2006 when Delmonte (funny I know) produced a lemon grass flavour that I instantly fell in love with. I really used to eat them when I was in Daystar. Later on I kept eating them and discovered the chicken curry flavour, that’s all I can stand at the moment and I enjoyed it even more. I like how quick they are. 4 mins max and u have a meal on your table.

Well later I had a housemate called Kathure who liked adding veggies, especially broccoli (YUCK) and chicken to her noodles. I found that to be very interesting but never tried it till about a month ago. It was delicious. I first tried it with chicken and red and yellow peppers and mushrooms it was nice. Last week I decided to try prawns and add a few more veggies and the outcome was great. Now that Indomie is really trying to market itself maybe you can try this out. HAPPY COOKING!!
