We asked Chadha Oriental to tell us about the unique and delicious taste of its Indomie Indonesian noodles
How did the Indomie label start?
Indomie has come a long way since its humble beginnings in the 1970’s.
“Indo” stands for Indonesia, and “Mie” means “noodles” in Indonesian. Therefore, “Indomie” means “noodles from Indonesia or Indonesian noodles”.
Indomie instant noodles are made from carefully selected ingredients, the best quality flour and fresh spices from the natural resources of Indonesia giving it a unique and delicious taste.
Today Indomie, which is one of Indonesia’s most iconic brands and can be found everywhere in Indonesia, from street-side stalls in the capital cities to the local corner shops in the remote area of West Papua, as well as over 50 countries worldwide including the UK.
What flavours are available?
Indomie was first produced with the classic Chicken Flavoured Noodles. In 1983, Indomie Mi Goreng was introduced and has since become the most popular flavour, followed by Indomie Soto Mie (Noodle Soto flavour), Indomie Ayam Bawang (Onion Chicken), Indomie Kari Ayam (Chicken Curry) and Indomie Ayam Spesial (Special Chicken).
How are the noodles prepared?
Mi Goreng literally means Fried Noodles, but without all the fuss. It’s ready in an instant for your convenience. Simply cook the noodles, drain and then add the seasonings in.
Each packet contains two sachets of seasonings. The first sachet has three segments and carries the liquid condiments; sweet soy sauce, chilli sauce, and seasoning oil with garlic flakes. The other sachet has two segments for dry seasoning powder and flake of fried shallot.
The Mi Goreng range includes; Fried, Rendang, Satay and Pedas (Hot& Spicy).
Indomie also has a classic flavour, the Special Chicken, which is best eaten with broth.
Other flavours available include Vegetable, Shrimp and Beef.
