Every now and then, there are times when we are lazy to cook and are so hungry that we want food in just a matter of minutes! I remember when I was a student, during the time when I had to study for exams and complete my assignments, I just didn’t want to spend more than 10 minutes in the kitchen. So, I always had some instant noodles in my larder.
No, I haven’t quit eating instant noodle. In fact, I still buy some (from time to time) and have them in the larder as ‘backups’ – for times when I don’t feel like cooking or I’m just too busy to cook. One of my favourite brands is Mama – this is a Thai brand instant noodles. My all time favourite has to be the Tom Yum flavour – not only it is spicy but it is sour enough to be called Tom Yum too!
As part of the Royal Selangor – Get Your Jelly On– 30-day Challenge, I decided to present the instant noodle in a cone shape, using Royal Selangor Pewter Jelly Mould. The soup base is set with agar agar. Reserve a few tablespoons of the agar agar soup mixture and pour into the cooked noodles, mix and put it in a small bowl to take shape. Then, when the soup stock is almost set, still slightly tacky, fill the the rest of the mould with the noodles and continue to chill.
The idea is that it can be presented in a cone shape before it is heated up again and serve like normal instant noodles. 🙂
If you are interested to try out my recipes so far and would like to get your hands on the mould, you get could the jelly mould here, proceeds from the sale of the jelly mould go towards the Breast Cancer Welfare Association in aid of their continuous efforts to raise awareness and support for breast cancer.
