Pot noodles have been about for many years as I remember seeing them as a child. I have occasionally over the years tried the different flavours but not something you'd find in my kitchen cupboard on a regular basis.
You will find these in all supermarkets and most smaller shops too. The price varies depending on if it's on offer or not but the average price for one 90g pot is £1.00.
They come in several flavours like sweet & sour, chow mein, chicken and mushroom and this curry one just to name some of them.
The original curry one is one of my favourites. I've started buying these often over the last few months as when I work a late shift through the evening at work there is a fridge and a kettle so am very limited to what I can have for my tea. I've contemplated boiling an egg in the kettle but pot noodle is easier.
To make these you remove the foil lid and fill with just boiled water to the line which says fill to here. Inside the pot you will find dry noodles a sachet of the mango chutney and a power in the base with dried veg ingredients. Make sure you remove sachet before adding the water which is usually found on the top. Once you've added the water you let it stand for a few minutes giving it a stir a couple times to make sure all the powder from base is mixed in and the noodles are all getting soft.
Once the water is absorbed and all the noodles are soft it's ready to eat. I always add in the mango chutney as like it but you don't have to add it.
I find these deal with my hunger pangs but don't fill you up completely, The curry taste is as I like it spicy but not too spicy and you can smell it's curry flavour too.
So until my boss caves in and lets us have a microwave these will have to do. You don't need to be a fab cook to make these either.
