Made from chickpea flour, sesame seeds and spices, we fell in love with this spicy, South Indian version of chow mein noodles. Grab them by the handful or throw them into your favorite soup.

You’ll want iced tea and LOTS of it with these spicy, crunchy snack noodles. I brewed some of this Lemon-Lime Meringue flavored Kukicha from 52Teas and chilled it, but if you don’t have any of this amazing tea on hand (this VIT flavor has since sold out), I guess any delicious iced tea will do. I’d recommend something light and refreshing, to help counter the incredible spice of these noodles.
What I Think:
I think I’m in love, that’s what I think!
These are incredible. I love that they are inspired by the spices of India, and not just doused with a heavy amount of powdered hot chili spice. I can taste the curry in these, and I love that!
At first glance, they look pretty harmless. In fact, what they look like are the chow mein noodles that I enjoy snacking on. They’re a little thinner, perhaps, than the kind I find packaged in a can in the grocery store, but other than that, they look just like the same noodle. They even pack the same crunch as those noodles … but with the Indian spices, they sure don’t taste like those noodles I’m used to. These really deliver a seriously spicy blow to the palate!
But it’s not just spicy, there’s some complexity within it, and I think that’s what I’m enjoying most of all. The heat isn’t the type of heat that keeps your mouth on fire, after a few moments (and a swig of iced tea), the heat tapers and then I notice hints of nutty taste from the chickpea and sesame seeds.
My Final Thoughts:
These are incredibly tasty – but certainly not for wimps! These would make great toppings for a fresh garden salad or perhaps a creamy tomato soup (YUM!) but, that’s only if you can stop eating them long enough to actually use them for something other than right out of the package snacking.
