Masala-Flavored Noodles refer to a ready-to-cook noodle products which are available in India with an authenthic Indian taste, that of Masala.
When I was in Allepey, Kerala, India, for a while I craved for noodles and what they have given me from the food shops are also "very Indian" because even the ready-to-cook noodles are flavored with Masala and I loved it of course. I brought some packs on my way home to Germany.
I am missing the taste of Masala, I searched for Masala in the spice section of groceries here in Germany, but found only Garam Masala which has not the same taste like that of Masala I have tasted in Kerala.
In Allepey, they were laughing at me, because only little children are offered these ready-to-cook noodles. The adults will always like the traditional everyday dishes that they have. I am so happy no one shared my Masala noodles.
I added this particular food in my Glossary because it sustained my cravings while I was travelling. I enjoyed my usual noodles with a twist. It is one food whihc I will never forget and whenever I eat noodles, I will remember my happy times in Allepey, Kerala, India
While travelling to Munnar, it was so hard for me to find an eatery, but I found this one place near the Echo Point, a Thathukkada, a roadside eatery where I had my breakfast, a very good Malayalee vendor offered me ready-to-cook noodles and he cooked it for me with lots of slices of red onions. He also have some hard-boiled eggs and Masala tea. What a gracious cook.
