...like the ones in kdramas :)
I dunno if there's a thread like this already, but if there is. please delete. :)

-anyways, i always see people on korean dramas cooking ramen? but they don't just cook the "ramen" noodles itself, they also add some sort of vegetables and eggs?

like, i was watching "prosecutor princess" and they made it seem like the ramen was so delicious!

-i just wanna know what ingredients do u guys put in ramen? hopefully similar to those korean dramas i see?

coz it seems soooo good!.. LOL.

i only eat it alone, so i dunno if it could have tasted better with some added ingredients.

thanks! :D

I think ramen is usually prepared with vegetables and an egg. And a variety of other stuff.

Otherwise it'll taste like...lol plain noodles.

just the way you cook the packaged ramen makes a difference too. do you add the package seasonings to the boiling water first or the noodle itself first? i used to do boil water, put in ramen, and then add seasoning packet. BUT NOW i add the seasoning first then add the noodle after the seasoning has boiled for a good minute in the water. the difference is that the soup becomes much more enhanced if you add the seasonings first because it can cook longer. also the noodle itself won't be too soggy. for toppings i throw in almost anything from the fridge. typical is kimchi, any leftover meat or hot dog, egg- i sometimes fry an egg and put it on top or just crack an egg into the ramen, any kind of green leaf vegetables, grilled meat is also excellent, and if i want more kick i will add a bit of soy sauce and dry pepper flakes. the possibilities are endless.

Easiest way is to basically boil everything else first.

1) Heat water, add seasoning

2) Add your ingredients. Vegetables take longer, they go in first.

3) When the water boils, add in meats

4) Add egg last (you can just drop an egg into boiling water, it works well)

5) Turn off fire, add the ramen last and let it steam

lol i thought an egg was a given? i personally don't like egg in it. *hides*

but yeah just add whatever you want to the pot. depending on the texture you like, you can adjust how long the ingredient will be in the water, so for veggies, if you like them really wilted, then you can leave them in for a while or wait until the end if you like them more crisp(?). other things like cooked meat (grilled is really good) or seasonings are also whatever you like, just use. i also like bean sprouts, really fresh against the piping hot noodles.

I don't really care about my ramen. I just quickly cook it and eat it quickly. But my parents like to put green onions, egg(s), kimchi, and some other veggies. They don't eat a lot of ramen so I don't remember.

I like to drain the water and mix the soup package with the noodles (not the whole packet though). ^o^

I usually just cook my ramen with an egg and spam if there's any around the house.

A little off topic but, does anyone have a tendency to drain their noodles and boil another pot of water to make the soup? I heard there's like a bunch of crap in ramen noodles like wax to help it hold shape and stuff. The water gets all murky after I cook the noodles anyways.. so I just dump it out and boil more water.

Oh.. I make yummy ramens! :D

I first get water and heat it til it boils.. then I put in some kochu garu (red pepper flakes) to make it a bit more spicy..

Then I put in the soup base/veggie packets.. then put in a egg. Let it cook a bit.. then I put in some diced kimchi and fresh green onions. Then put in the ramen noodles and cook it al dente.. then I eat!! Haha.. xD

Sometimes if I want I will put in some dduk (the ovalette slices you use in mando gook!).. :D

Here's a trick for those of you who like chewier noodles:

Put cold water into the pot and before you turn on the stove put your noodles in the pot (add the seasoning package too if you want). Once it starts boiling, wait for a tiny bit so it cooks and then turn off the stove. Your noodles should be cooked and extra chewy.

You can also put in a couple of ice cubes to keep the noodle texture, but then your food would be cold.

I like putting a slice of cheese in my Shin ramyun because it cuts down the spiciness.

Frozen mandu is good too.

heat the water, while heating add crushed peppers (& sausage when i'm in the mood for it - gotta add more water w/ the sausage cuz it gets kinda salty)

when boiling, add the soup

i put in bean sprouts, hotpeppers, cilantro, green onions

then the noodles for like 30 seconds and take it off (i like my noodles barely cooked yeah haha)

and then... i feast :D
