Mama Shrimp Creamy Tom Yum Flavour Noodles

Tom Yum soup is a popular spicy dish in Thailand, with shrimp and tomato and mushroom, and chili powder to provide the heat, I had some on the weekend, very delicious. This instant noodle product from Thailand attempts to recreate the flavour of this soup, and does an admirable job, though it is a creamier version than the one I had on the weekend. Like all instant noodles, it is very easy to make, just add about 500 mL of boiling water to all the ingredients, the noodles and the spices, and let it sit for three minutes. To make it even better tasting, and heartier, add some extra ingredients, like cooked shrimp, or cut-up tomatoes, or other vegetables, or cooked meat. Makes for a good lunch, especially if you like the heat of chilis.
