I’m always looking for new ways to up my ramen game. Since so many of you enjoyed KEWPIE MAYO RAMEN HACK on my blog, I thought I’d share this curry ramen hack. If you’re a fan of Asian curry, then you will love this recipe and I’m going to show you how to make curry ramen.
What does curry ramen taste like?
Imagine chewy bouncy ramen noodles cooked in creamy curry broth with a hint of garlic and a spicy kick.
My quick curry ramen instant noodles are so easy to whip up! In a small pot mix together kewpie mayo (this gives it the creaminess), minced garlic, instant ramen seasoning and dried flakes into a paste.
Then pour cold water into the pot and mix until the paste has dissolved. Next bring that to a boil, add your block of Japanese curry mix while stirring to dissolve. Once dissolved, boil your ramen noodles for 2-3 minutes. Garnish with green onions and enjoy!
What You’ll Need
For this recipe you’ll need the following curry ramen ingredients:
- Spicy Soup-Based Instant Ramen with instant seasoning & dried vegetable flakes (optional)
- Japanese curry block or powder (mild)
- Japanese Mayo
- Green onions
Below are tips on making the best instant curry ramen noodles:
Create paste first
To avoid clumps of kewpie mayo floating in your curry broth, mix it with your garlic, instant ramen seasoning and dried vegetable flakes in the pot. Then pour COLD water into it and mix again until that paste has dissolved.
Use Japanese or Korean Curry
This is important as Japanese or Korean curry contains fewer spices making it less spicy and pungent. It also has a slightly different flavour profile from Indian curry – it almost tastes slightly sweeter.
I’m using the Japanese brand called “Golden Curry”, but your local Asian grocer may carry other Japanese or Korean brands that will work too! Another brand I like is called “Vermont Curry” or “Ottogi” curry mix powder.
Do not overcook your ramen
I always cook my ramen for less than the time specified on the ramen packet. Usually 2-3 minutes or until Al-dente. Don’t forget the ramen is going to be sitting and cooking in your broth as you consume it.
Below are frequently asked questions about this easy curry ramen:
Which ramen brand did you use?
I love “Jin Ramen”, which is a soup based Korean Instant Ramen on the mild side. They have a spicier version. You can also use Nong Shim.
Which curry brand did you use?
I used “Golden Curry” (mild) which comes in blocks, and I only used 1 block of it. “Vermont” Curry will also work too!
What ingredients are in “Golden Curry”?
Wheat flour, Vegetable oils (Palm oil, Rapeseed oil), Sugar, Salt, Curry powder, Monosodium glutamate, Caramel color, Pepper, Malic acid, Garlic, Disodium guanylate, Disodium inosinate, Celery seed, Mustard.
Can I use Indian curry powder?
You may but if you really like a very pungent and spicy curry. Most Asian curries are more mellow in taste and in smell.
Does curry ramen taste good?
Yes! The flavour of the Japanese curry with the instant ramen seasoning with mayo and garlic make this a tasty ramen hack!
