Welcome to YQtravelling’s FoodFriday–the day of the week when I show off some of the lovely eats I had while travelling.
Today’s post is a special feature where I teach you how to cook instant noodles in a hostel. Let’s get cooking.
Last month, I showed you how to cook a steak in a hostel. Today, I want to show you how to cook instant noodles in a hostel.
OK, I caved in and ate instant noodles in my hostel in Arequipa, Peru. The result wasn’t that good but if you need to eat, you need to eat.
For this recipe, you will need
- One instant noodle
- One egg
- Some vegetable
- Pot with cover
Step 1: Boil some water in the pot
Get the water to a boil to cook the noodles.
Step 2: Cook the noodles
Cook the noodles.
I don’t time my cooking and wait for the noodles to disintegrate from brick of noodles.
Take out the separated noodles and put them into a bowl.
Step 3: Make the soup with new pot of water
Pour out the noodle water and wash the pot.
Boil another pot of water but don’t use too much because you don’t want thin soup. While you wait for the water to boil, put the seasoning into the water.
I usually use part of the seasoning, pinching one corner of the packet so those seasoning do not fall into the soup. This results in disgustingly underseasoned noodles but that’s how I roll.
Step 4: Cook the vegetable and egg
If you have more vegetable than water, cook your veggies in batch. Blanch your veggies until they turn a darker shade. Take the veggies out into the bowl.
When you have your last batch of veggies, you can crack the egg into the soup. Break up the egg if you want floating pieces of eggs or leave it untouched.
Step 5: Serve
When the egg is cooked to your preference, pour the soup into your bowl of noodles.
