Indomie Goreng
Produced by Indofood Company

‘Mi Goreng’ is Indonesian for “fried noodle”. It’s a “soupless” instant noodle that is similar to the traditional mi goreng found cooked by hawkers, in restaurants and homes in Indonesia. Each packet of ‘original’ Mi Goreng weighs nett 85g, and contains two flavour sachets, presented as a “dry” packet and a “wet packet”. The first sachet is split into three segments and contains the liquid condiments: kecap manis (thick, sweet soy sauce – sold separately as ABC Kecap Manis), and seasoning oil with Onion flakes. The second sachet is split into two segments: one contains a dry seasoning powder, whilst the other contains chili sauce.

As mentioned on its package, the ingredients are:

  • Noodles
    Wheat flour (62%), refined palm oil (contains antioxidant 319), tapioca starch, salt, mineral salts (501, 500), vegetable gum (412), colour (101).
  • Seasoning powder
    Salt, sugar, flavour enhancers (621, 631, 627), garlic power, onion power, yeast extract, flavours, pepper, anti caking agent (551).
  • Seasoning oil
    Refined palm oil (contains antioxidant 319), onion.
  • Sweet soy sauce
    Sugar, water, salt, wheat, soy bean, spices, sesame oil.
  • Chilli sauce
    Chilli, water, sugar, salt, tapioca starch, food acids (260, 330), flavour enhancers (621, 631, 627), garlic flavour, preservatives (211, 223).
  • Fried onion
    Fried onion.

It’s very easy to cook. Just turn over the package and you will see the instructions as follow:

  • Bring 2 cups of water to the boil, add noodles and simmer for 3 minutes.
  • Mix seasoning powder, oil, sweet soy sauce and chili sauce (according to taste) on a bowl while noodles are being cooked in saucepan.
  • Remove noodles from boiling water and drain well.
  • Place noodles on bowl and stir noodles through the seasonings and mix well.
  • Garnish with supplied fried onion and your delicious noodles are ready to serve.

Although Mi Goreng can be a snack on its own, additional condiments can be added to round out the meal. The packet’s picture suggests a fried egg, cooked prawns and peas as serving suggestions. This combination of additions, however, isn’t practiced widely.

Indomie Mi Goreng is certified Halal (حلال, halāl, halaal), however no certifying body is indicated on the packaging. Indomie Mi Goreng contains phenylalanine, so individuals suffering from phenylketonuria should also steer clear.
