Instant noodle is NOT the healthiest thing to eat: nutrient-less, oil used for the noodle, chemicals in the mixture powder but.... there is time when you are just too lazy or you crave for one...😔
When that happens, you could make a 'better' instant noodle...with a little less guilt 😌
Start by boiling a jar of water. At least 1.5L of hot water is needed
Prepare ingredients for additional nutrients
Fry an egg! When it's done leave it aside in a bowl
Lightly fry the cooked ham to give more taste
Put it aside with the egg
Lightly fry the prawns as well !
After removing the prawns into bowl, add hot water and rinse off the oily residue left in the pot
After draining the oily bits, add another lot of fresh hot water
Put in the healthy bits and let it boil for 2-3 minutes
Then remove and let it join the rest :)
Remove water and add another lot of fresh water
This time when water is boiling add the noodle.
Let the water boils again and gently stir the noodle for even cooking
After 1-1.5 minutes remove noodle from water. Throw away the water used. By doing this, you could remove the oil from the noodle :)
Add fresh lot of hot water, around 250-300ml
Make sure it is boiling before next step
Heads up: you need to be quite quick (and careful) from this step onwards as time delay could make the noodle soggy. Add everything from the bowl into the pot.
Quickly add the mixture on top
Turn the heat OFF immediately (see I was taking the picture too quickly...)
Then stir and let powder dissolves. It is better to off the heat first, as it seems the direct heat from cooking could turn the mixture compound into something more toxic to our body.
Now pour it back into the bowl and serve immediately! :D
Pour the remaining hot water into pot so that it can be easily washed later :)
