“Mama” is Thailand’s favourite brand of instant noodles, and we love it so much we use it in all sorts of recipes. In this video I show you how to elevate the humble pack of instant noodles into something more sophisticated, and definitely healthier and yummier than just boiling it in hot water!
These Mama noodles have a very unique texture and flavour which work well in so many applications including a noodle salad, which if you haven’t tried it, make sure you check out the recipe linked below!
You can change up the vegetables, but I highly recommend keeping the cabbage and the tomatoes. I’m not adding any meat to this but you certainly can. The eggs, however, are so important! The flavour of the eggs once they’ve been browned in the wok is so much of what makes this dish so yummy.
