How to cook cup ramen noodles

Prepare ramen noodles

  • 1

    Get a large pot. It should be big enough to fit all of the ramen without breaking it (but you can if you prefer). It should also be small enough so that the water completely covers the ramen noodles. Some people like to eat the ramen wet rather than drained, so if this applies to you, you can be more generous with the water.

    Pour the preferred amount of water into the pot. If you're unsure, try two cups, but if you want more, you can. You can replace the water with another liquid, e.g. B. soy sauce or broth, but water will also work.

    Boil the water.On most stoves, all you have to do is turn the level as high as possible and wait for the water to boil. If the bubbles bubble over the top as you cook, just turn the heat down. The next time you make ramen, don't turn the stove on.
    • As long as the water is bubbling, its temperature is at the boiling point and it is circulating. Bubbly boiling is hardly more effective and only runs the risk of boiling over, so turn down the heat a little if it continues to boil.

    Add the ramen when the water is boiling. Use a fork to push the block under the water as it floats up. You can also break the block into pieces beforehand if you prefer shorter noodles that don't slurp as well, but that's a personal choice.

    Mix well. If you want to make the cooking even and speed it up a bit by keeping uncooked stragglers off the surface, stir the noodles apart.

    Wait.Three minutes is the normal cooking time, but it can take longer. When the noodles turn slightly yellow, they're done. At this point, the ramen should be completely broken apart and a few noodles should get stuck on the fork when you put them in the water.
    • The ramen are ready to eat when they are flexible. If they cook a few minutes longer, they will become softer, thicker, and see-through. Maybe you like her that much better.

    Add the sachet with the flavor. Note that the small packet contains a lot of sodium - if you have health problems it would be better to add less or none at all.

    Mix well. Now you can do one of two things: You can pour the entire contents of the pot, including the liquid, into a bowl and eat it as a soup, or you can drain the water and eat the ramen only.
