How to cook Shin-noodle [Shin Ramyeon]
What pops into your head first when you think of Asian food?
Maybe rice, dumplings… and of course: noodles!
Besides rice, noodles are one of Korea’s staple foods. In Korean supermarkets, you’ll see aisles and aisles of different noodle types. Each with their own unique texture and flavours:
In your country you may have seen a noodle product called ‘SHIN Noodles [신라면]‘. This brand of noodles is the most well-known and the oldest noodle product in Korea.
They taste great as they are, but I’ll give you a few quick tips on how to get the most of your noodles
- 1 pack of Shin-Noodle
- 550ml Water ( 2 1/3 cup)
- 1 Egg
- 1 Spring onion
- 1 Chilli
- 1 tsp. of Sugar
1. Boil the 550ml water in a pot.
2. Once the water is boiling, Add the soup powder and dried veggie flakes.
3. Add the noodle. Boil for 2 minutes over HIGH heat.
4. After 2 minutes boiling, Add an egg.
5. Chop the spring onion over the pot using a pair of scissors (yes it’s safe!)
6. Do the same with the chilli:
7. While boiling, use chopsticks to pull the noodles in and out of the pot. This will make them more chewy.
8. And a killer tip: add one teaspoon of sugar. This will really boost the flavor!
8. Finally boil for 2-3 minutes on high heat. (Total cooking time is 4~5 minutes).
Serve in a big bowl and enjoy!
9. Still hungry? After you’ve eaten the noodles and you have only a bowl of soup remaining, add a bowl of steam rice! And for the full Korean experience, eat it with Kimchi! It’ll taste even better
