‘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.

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.
