It’s not enough to read the label



Perencah Kari

A Nestle TV commercial confess that it pays to check the label.  That is if you can read the label.  A while ago, I had some instant noodles which I got from my officemate.  It was a Maggi Perencah Kari from Malaysia.  Maybe it’s hot and spicy since the label shows a red soup.  But the color red can mean other things like strawberry flavor or red tea.  Asian food has plenty of surprises.

So I cooked the noodles.  I only followed the illustrations on how to prepare it.  It say’s mi 2 minit which I deduce to mean only 2 minutes.  At the back it shows 2 200mL cups and the seasoning.  Simple food.

And when it was ready, I scooped a spoonful of the soup, blew it a little to cool it down and sipped it.  Still I was curious how it will taste like.

Waaaah!!!  It was very hot and very spicy.  I immediately reached for some cold water from the fridge.  I finished a glass but the spice was still on my lips.  I allowed the noodle soup to cool off for a while.  I was able to finish the noodles but I can sip all of the soup.  It was just too spicy for me.  I finished it with sweat trickling down from my head, arms and chest.

I tried searching what Perencah Kari means.  Google shows no definition of Perencah Kari or its translation.  Would you know?  Help me check the label.

    Hi Jinoe, Let here, it’s curry flavor that’s why it’s hot and spicy. BTW, that is a special product of Maggi in Malaysia, you can add a squeeze of lemon. Regards to Que :)
