There is no argument that one of the best instant noodles is ramyun. Not only is it spicy and savory but it is so easy to make, perfect for a meal on a budget or just a quick satisfying meal on the go.
But what to do to make your instant ramyun extra special? Yes, you can still make your favorite ramyun more delicious and extra fancy with very simple ingredients but quick and easy. Let’s dig in.
You're probably already putting egg in your shin ramyun but cheese? Yes, cheese is more specially easy to melt sliced cheese. You can use any type of cheese from Colby, Havarti, Swiss, Monterey Jack or even plain good American cheese. Basically any cheese will work but an easy to melt one is the best choice. Just put the cheese on the same time that you put your noodles in. Stir and enjoy!
This might be a bit weird for someone but this actually tastes so good that plain old instant ramyun will never be enough. Put 1 spoonful of peanut butter per 1 pack of instant ramyun. Make sure to stir well to avoid lumps and that's it, spicy nutty buttery ramyun. Yum!!!
Well, this might be also weirder than peanut butter but this surprisingly tastes good. It will give a bit of a tangy taste to your shin ramyun. Add 1 tablespoon of ketchup in the last 5 minutes of cooking the noodles and that's it!
Instead of using plain water, substitute it with milk. Just boil your noodles first in plain water then once it is halfway cooked, drain the water and replace it with milk. Just bring it to a simmer, don't let it boil fully as the milk will curdle or become lumpy. Substituting water with milk can also help to reduce the spiciness of the noodles. Perfect for those who are a novice with spicy food.
Who said instant ramyun cannot be healthy? Make it a bit healthy and hearty by adding vegetables on it. You can put any type of veggies you want but the best ones are cabbage, carrots, mushrooms (enoki is the best choice) and bean sprouts. Just don't over cook the vegetables, put it once halfway done cooking.
It's more like a garnish rather than an ingredient. You don't need to cook the seaweed with the noodles, just put it on top. You can use seaweed sheets or flakes, whichever you fancy.
If you want to make your instant ramyun feel more full to the stomach, adding your favorite meat like chicken or beef and even seafood like squid or shrimp will be so yummy. Leftovers are the best choice. Not only do you not cook it but it has more flavor to it.
