MyKuali Penang White Curry Noodle

Calling all instant noodle fans, have you rided the hype of the Top Ten Spiciest Instant Noodles Of All Time 2013 by the Ramen Rater?

MyKuali Penang White Curry Noodle, a Malaysia production, became famous overnight since it came in #7 in that list. The curry broth was said to be hot and fiery. It was sold out everywhere, many were buying in cartons, even in Penang. But we wondered, why don't they just buy the freshly made one? Isn't it available everywhere in Penang?

Thanks to my sis, I get to try one. She told me that the curry was awesome but the noodle itself was just okay.

Opening the package and you will find a square noodle block, accompanied by 3 sachets of seasonings - the non-dairy creamer, chilli paste and seasoning powder. 

The chilli paste was said to be made from fish stock, shrimp paste, spices and chillies. Once heated up, I just couldn't help but kept Ah Choo! Ah Choo!

We have a habit of using only 2/3 of each seasonings, but for this one, all in! I even reduced the water just to make sure that the soup would be gau gau.

I thought it was too plain so I added some frozen prawns. Voila! The noodle is now ready for me to devour.

Slowly stir in the chilli paste, notice how the curry turning red? It is no longer white curry!

Turned out, I had probably set my expectation too high, it actually wasn't that spicy. The laksa was really fragrant, better than many freshly made laksa out there. Without being told, I bet you couldn't tell that the curry was from instant noodle package.

As for the noodle itself, it seems that my sister and I always have split opinion on noodles. This one for example, I actually enjoy the texture of this noodle.

Next time if I see this noodle selling, I would surely buy some, but certainly not a carton, don't want to go botak yet (yes it contain MSG)!

Did you join the hype to buy the noodle too? What is your verdict?
