Hey there everyone!
Today I will be sticking with my latest food theme, cheap meals!
One of the cheapest ingredients in supermarkets are packs of Instant noodles and I just had to do something special with them and develop a recipe to make a really delicious meal.
These noodles are 15p a pack in leading supermarkets and I used two packs!
I also used a fraction of a package of Chinese Instant Curry powder which may have cost £1 all in all and has 10 servings.
So all in all this meal comes to a grand total of 40p!
Curried Noodle Cake
2 packs instant noodles plain
Chinese curry powder
Place the noodles in a container and pour over boiling water to cover.
When softened, drain and set aside.
In a frying pan, on a high heat, add some Chinese curry powder and add enough boiling water to make a thick smooth paste when whisked.
Reduce the heat to a medium heat and add in the noodles, combine thoroughly with the curry paste.
Pat the noodles into an even thickness on the bottom of the frying pan with a spatula and lift, adding in a little vegetable oil.
Now leave the noodles to cook and crispened for 5-10 minutes until they are browned and sturdy enough to flip.
Flip the cake on to a plate then into the pan on the other side until it has crispened (5-10 minutes).
The cake will be ready when it is crispy enough to cut out a slice and stays sturdy in one piece!
Not bad for 40p!
