Quick Meals With Instant Noodles

[Instant Noodles] Mee Pok Dry with Dumplings
I am sure most of us loves Instant Noodles as it often helps to fill our hungry stomach in less than 10 minutes of preparation and we get to enjoy it during anytime of the day. Plus the best part of it is we get to add in whatever we like or find in the fridge too. Although I love to cook but there are also times when I just feel like having some comfort food which are easy to prepare too.

But at certain points I am also quite particular with the brand of instant noodles, method of cooking as well as the accompany ingredients. So most of the time, I would just stock the few of our favourite brands which we have being eating for years.

SeoulFoodProject - #01 Instant Noodles Box (with recipe + cooking video)

[SeoulFoodProejct] Box 1 - Instant Noodles
Last few weeks I was back into chasing Korean Drama which introduced by my bestie on a latest fantasy romance known as My Love From Another Stars (來自星星的你) by Kim Soo-hyun (金秀賢) and Jun Ji-hyun (全智賢). And like most other Korean dramas there are always one/two scenes featuring their instant Korean Ramen which makes me salivate while watching it.

But now with this "instant noodles box" from SeoulFoodProject, I can easily enjoy pipping hot Korean Ramen anytime of the day. Furthermore this themed box also comes with a "golden pot" which used for cooking the ramen as well a set of Korean cutlery.

Korean Clay Pot Ramyun

When we talk about the word "Ramen", it always lead us to either Japanese or Chinese style type of handmade soup Noodles which often served with meat based broth that is flavored with soy sauce or miso. From then you can select toppings such as sliced pork (Chashu), dried seaweed (Nori), spring onion and etc.

In this post I am sharing the Korean style Ramen which also known as Ramyun/Ramyeon(라면) and it is usually in the form of instant noodles(either cup or packet). Ramyeon comes is different flavour such as spicy, non-spicy, meat or vegetarian, soup and dry version. And the photo shown in this post  is one of their popular "Clay Pot Ramyun" which is spicy and often eaten with kimchi as a topping or on the side.


KOREAN CLAY POT RAMYUM


Although I do not encourage regular(such as daily/weekly) consuming of "instant noodles" but I have no obligation to stock up a few packets at home for rainy days or supper. For me, even having simple stuff like instant noodles I would also add in extra ingredients and garnish to make it more nutritious and a hearty dish.

As these few weeks seems to be raining quiet often I feel that it is the perfect weather to have a bowl of this "hot and spicy" ramyun to warm the day......


(Serve: 1      |          Preparation: 5 minutes |       Cooking: 4 - 5 minutes)

Ingredients:
1 Packet of Instant Ramen
Some Red and Green Chilli, sliced
1 Stalk Spring Onion, cut into sections
Some Cabbage Kimchi
1 Egg, optional

Method:-
1. Follow the packet instructions, add about 550ml(i use 600ml) of water into a pot and bring to boil.

3. Simmer for about 4 - 5 minutes till noodle is soften.

Korean Rice Cakes with Ramen Noodles - Rabokki (라볶이)


Tteokbokki or Ddeokbokki(떡볶이) is a popular Korean braised dish which consists of sliced rice cake, meat, vegetables, eggs, etc and seasonings. This dish is commonly purchased from street vendors in Korea and there are many different kinds of tteokbokki such as seafood tteokbokki(해물 떡볶이) or rice tteokbokki(쌀떡볶이).

Whereas in this post, I would be sharing a Rabokki (라볶이) recipe with you. Rabokki derives from the combining words of "ddeokbokki" and "ramyeon" which means stir-fried rice cakes with instant ramen noodles. With this you can have two different favourite korean ingredients in one dish and enjoys the chewy texture of rice cakes plus springy ramyeon.


KOREAN RICE CAKES WITH RAMEN NOODLES
Rabokki (라볶이)


My version of Rabokki is a bit different from the authentic way of Korean cooking. Here instead of adding carrot into the braised dish, it is served separately with shredded cucumber where you can add into your Rabokki according to your preference. I remember the first time I had this dish is over at Maameemoomoo's house a few months back and indeed I love this dish to bit. But my version is slightly different from Sherie's as it has being simplify by using pre-mixed Topokki Hot Sauce.

(Serves: 2-3 |        Preparation: 10 minutes |        Cooking: 10 minutes)

Ingredients:
1 Packet(150g) of Topokki Hot Sauce
150g of Korean Rice Cakes (ddeok - 떡)
1/2 Portion of Napa Cabbage, cut into pieces
1 Piece of Fish Cake, cut into slices
1 Packet of Korean Instant Ramen, break into halve
2 Stalls Spring Onion, cut into sections
2 - 3 Hard-boiled Eggs, shell removed
1/2 medium carrot, thinly shred
1 Japanese Cucumber, thinly shred

Garnish:
Red/Green Chilli, thinly sliced
Roasted White Sesame Seeds
Chopped Spring Onion
Sesame Oil to taste


Method:-
1. Rinse rice cake in cold water. Drain and set aside.

2. In a medium pot or frying pan, add rice cakes together with 250ml of water and cook on medium heat till water comes to boil. Lower the heat and simmer for 2 minutes.

3. Next add in cabbage, spring onion, fish cake and noodles, let the mixture simmer for 1 minute(on medium heat) before stirring in the "Topokki Hot Sauce".

4. On low heat simmer the mixture till the sauce has thickened slightly and both rice cakes and noodles are soften.

5. Remove mixture from heat, divide it into 2 or 3 serving plates. Top with some shredded carrot and cucumber together with hard-boiled eggs and served hot with some garnish on top.

For those who loves baked chicken wings, here is a preview of my next Korean dish which is known as "Korean Spicy Chicken(매운 닭 날개)". It has a similar cooking concept like the western "Buffalo Wings" whereby you can adjust the spiciness of the wings according to your preference.
