Easy ramen burger

Noodles hamburger

Ramen burger??? As everyone knows that Japanese loved their noodle (ramen) and that is how it was invented. It was created by a Japanese-American (I guessed).

You can make this yourself for fun and it is very easy. All you need is a pack of instant noodle and egg.

  1. Cook the instant noodles according to the package and season it. (The Japanese always season it with dashi stock).
  2. When the noodles is fully cook, leave it cool and then mix it with beaten egg.
  3. Wrapped it with some plastic foil.
  4. Put them into a ramekin and press them flat until it looks like the picture on top.
  5. Put them into the fridge for an hour to get the shape.
  6. Heat the frying pan with some oil and then pan-fry it.
  7. There you’ve the piece of bread (ramen) for your hamburger.

You can do exactly the same method with multi-grain rice or brown rice, this type of rice is sticky when cooked. So, you don’t need any egg for it. Use the left-over rice is even better. The Malaysia chicken ball rice shared the similar concept, shape the rice.

Have fun with it!!!
