Instant noodles in the bowl? Check.
Water until the noodles submerge? Check.
Now to turn the stove on, see that the fire is slim. The tastemaker/masala is ready, all I have to do is wait until the noodles soften.
Five minutes later, I’m still standing by the stove waiting. They said it takes 2 minutes to make noodles. Brazen liars.
Ten minutes later, I pour the excess water out so that the noodles aren’t too soft. It’s finally time to add masala, then garam masala, then a pinch of chicken masala, some green chilli sauce, then some tomato ketchup, some soy sauce and peri peri to enhance the taste and texture.
In spite of all the care taken, noodles are still tangled and sticky. I don’t know how they do it in the advertisements, that perfect non sticky noodle.
Nevertheless, I’m done making my evening snack.
What next, you ask? What do you think?
(I’m still proud of my cooking prowess)
