If you grew up in Nigeria like me, I am sure you will be conversant with some of their adverts.

Indomie is common globally. The instant noodle produced by Indofood is circulated in Australia, Asia, New Zealand, Africa, the United States, Canada, Europe the Middle East, and of course Malaysia.

When you think of noodles in Nigeria, the first thing that comes to mind is Indomie.

We all love Indomie, though it’s not the healthiest choice out there – but on days we are lazy, it’s all we want!

From my calculation, tea and bread combination is the most popular breakfast recipe in Nigeria, then followed by noodles

The most common kind of Indomie is the “Mi Goreng” (stir fry) range which was built on the Indonesian dish of the same name.

Indomie Recipe:  How to Cook Indomie Noodles in Nigeria

There is a noticeable difference in how Nigerians make their Indomie. We do not drink Indomie as soup.

Unlike the Asian cuisines that make instant noodles as a soup, with the noodles swirling in lots of liquid when cooked.

In Nigeria, we prepare indomie the same way we cook our spaghetti. The noodles must be completely free of liquid.
