For those who did a massive supermarket haul, a budaejjigae or army stew party with your friends is perhaps the best way to clear all your ingredients in one go. Gather the lot of the ingredients and toss ‘em into a hotspot. If you’ve got spam, that works. Mushrooms? In they go. Cheese? Definitely.

Those who have Korean instant ramen like Nongshim’s Shin Noodle Soup don’t even need to spend time preparing a soup base as their seasoning already tastes close to the real deal.

Ingredients: anything goes – but the key ingredients are instant noodles, sausages, spam, onions, tofu and rice cakes.

8. Eat it raw

Curious minds, you might have wondered if you can eat instant noodles raw. And the answer is yes you can.

Maggi mee noodles are already pre-cooked before packing, so you can eat it like a Mamee snack. Toss in the seasoning and you’ve got your snack ready to go. What’s more, it’s actually instant – perfect for those lazy days where the stove just seems too far away. 

From those of us who have tried it though, the verdict is that they still taste better in cooked form.

Tip: Don’t use the full packet of seasoning as it’ll be super salty.
